Cannot recommend - you do not receive the recipes!

We were told we will get the recipes to cook at home, which we didn't so it was a really disappointing experience

What a wonderful experience! Not only did we learn how to make several Mexican specialties but Lily taught us the history along the way. She has a wonderful personality and is an excellent teacher. Cant wait to try her recipes now that I am home. Highly recommend this experience! Thank you Lily and Alex!

Best Tacos (and host) in Mexico

Lily was a dream! She has a very warm and beautiful soul, and was very kind to invite us into her home. She is so informative about everything - from the origin of how Mexicans used to make things to why they changed. Moreover, it’s a fun hands on class and you leave learning cooking techniques and yummy recipes. Some of us were vegetarian in the group and she was very accommodating. Last but certainly not least, the al pastor tacos were absolutely the best tacos we’ve had in both Mexico and New York. It’s very easy to tell that Lily’s love was poured into this food. Cannot wait to recreate these recipes!! We’ll be back soon Lily ❤️

Beyond expectations! Authentic, fun, and delicious.

All of the positive reviews don't do this experience justice - is better than you could imagine. Not only is Lily and her kind team fun and encouraging, the space is inviting, clean, and functional. The recipes actually seem reasonable to make now that I learned all of the steps hands-on and about the ingredients in detail. The food was the best I've had both on this trip and in the region. The experience was so rewarding that I'm hoping to return on this same trip to share in the joy and discovery with my husband and child. Don't miss out. This is an unforgettable experience.

Lily and her family were amazing host and instructors. Attending her cooking class turns your from a vacationer of Mexico to a traveler. You learn so much about Mexican history and cooking authentic Mexican dishes while she makes you laugh and has you opening your mind to trying new things. This was indeed the highlight of our trip to Tulum and would love to come back just to attend another one of her classes.

This was such a wonderful experience! Lily was one of the most kind and genuine humans I have ever met and made me feel at home in her beautiful, colorful, and cozy home. She and her staff (which were also great and very kind) treated us each as a family member and were patient and honestly hilarious. Anybody going to this area of Mexico needs to check this place out!

My wife and I had such a great experience! Lily had such a kind heart and really loves showing you how to cook. She takes time to explain everything very well. The food was amazing and would 100% recommend booking it with Lily!
