Isa’s Authentic Mexican Cooking School is the first culinary school teaching cooking classes in down town Playa del Carmen. The school is dedicated to the art of classic traditional Mexican cuisine and is located in a home kitchen close to the local market. Class will begin with a brief introduction from Chef Isa and overview of the various Mexican dishes that guests will be preparing for the day in a hands-on (some demonstration) style multi-course cooking class.
Following the introduction, Chef Isa will take you to the local market, just a few blocks away from the home-kitchen. Here in the market you will learn about the various ingredients and purchase some of the fresh items for the class. Once back in the home-kitchen, students will prepare a variety of dishes and learn about Mexican cooking techniques, using tools of the Mexican kitchen: molcajetes, tortilla press, cazuela, molinillo and more!
In class students will make Mexican aqua frescas, classic pico de gallo, nopal (cactus) salad, guacamole & a choice of a main dish: chicken/ pork pibil, tikin xic fish, tostadas w/ chicken tinga, fish ceviche, pork or fish pastor tacos & many more options to choose from!
