Weave this one into your trip - Doug C

Nassim was great. We had a nice tour of Mercado 23, a drink and a tamale for breakfast. As part of the tour he picked out a bunch of ingredients for our lunch and explained many of the local fruits, vegetables, meats, and spices. We cooked a homemade red sauce for lunch and made tortillas and sopes, along with guacamole and quesadillas. The restaurant we cooked at had a nice bar we took a break at while some simmering ingredients cooked. Great food, great instructor and transport to and from the hotel zone included. Good length for the visit too. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Cooking and Shopping Experience - Banda

The local market was so different than what we experience in most of the US. We took our purchases to the restaurant where we started to prepare our meal. We even tried our hand at crushing the corn to make tortillas. While the final cooking was happening, we were enjoying a margarita, or drink of your choice, at the bar. Everyone there was very friendly and all Covid protections were enforced, so we all felt comfortable. We highly recommend this experience.
