Anyone know any cooking classes in Puerto Vallarta?

  1. El Repollo Rojo (The Red Cabbage) has cooking classes. . . here's a description of the restaurant, and the address: http://www.frommers.com/destinations/.... Apparently they don't have a website any more. The food is great here, and it's off the beaten path.

    1. Another one you might check is El Arrayan which has in the past offered cooking lessons. It's the "best" Mexican restaurant in Puerto Vallarta.

      1. I've been to the classes taught by Dolores many times at Essence of Cuisine. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fun and educational night in PV. http://essenceofcuisine.com/

          I just took a class with Dolores in March and must admit I was a little bewildered. The food was generally okay, but not Mexican at all, and certainly not authentic Mexican. It started with an appetizer that included premade and formed tortillas, ground beef seasoned with a prepackaged taco seasoning and premelted cheese in a box (made by Hellmans).

          Dolores is quite fun and spirited and knowledgeable about markets in the area. If you are spending a lot of time in PV, she would certainly be a good resource as an ex-pat. But if you are already a skilled cook looking to increase your cooking knowledge or knowledge of cuisine specific to PV or Mexico, I would recommend you explore other options.

        2. Please visit our website at www.arteculinario-mavigraf.com to find about our authentic, private classes of both Traditional and Contemporary Mexican Cuisine, given in our home. We know you will love them
