Imagine being in your country, and knowing how to make your own Mexican salsa!
We will teach you how to make it and enjoy it, and above all, you will understand why Chile is the heart of our gastronomy.
Your visit is made up of the following stages:
First a brief explanation about what is chili, its origin, history, classification and texture, as well as its processes.
Afterwards, we will show you the different sauces that can be made, and you will make your own sauce, in our Mexican mortar that dates from our pre-Hispanic time "El Molcajete".
Finally, we will have a tasting with the elaborated sauces and some Mexican appetizers.

We are a couple that loves to eat, cook and share our knowledge with all. Armando is a magnificent chef, who studied his career in gastronomy in Paris France, but decided to return to Mexico for the love of our country. I, Ana, am a lover of our Mexican culture, and proud of our ancentral roots. We love cooking together and sharing it with people from other countries, who take a pleasure of learning something new while having fun! We hope you can come to our home, and enjoy learning a little more about our culture, through one of the elements that most characterize us as Mexicans...The Chilli!

Ana and Armando were amazing hosts. Alan and I learnt so much, had an enriching cultural experience and felt like we left with new friends! This would definitely be something that we'd recommend to anyone in that would be in the area - whether you like chile and spice or not - because there's SO much variety to choose from. We'll definitely stop in and say hi to these two next time we're in Puerto Morelos!

A must experience activity. Ana Maria and her husband were so welcoming in their home. We had an awesome time preparing salsa and trying them out. They were so knowledgeable. It was an experience we will never forget

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience, I am a foodie and i usually do cooking lessons when i travel, this was amongst the best I have had. I was keen to participate in this experience, Maria was kind enough to schedule a session just to accommodate my schedule as i was only in Mexico for a limited period. Additionally communication was on point, in-terms of giving direction, responding to my enquiries ect.

Had a most enjoyable time at Ana and Armandos beautiful home. Their chili workshop was great fun. Very informative and delicious content! I am excited to go home and be able to make my own authentic salsas and sauces now! I shall definitely be booking another experience with them next time we are in Puerto Morelos

What a great experience! We loved getting to know Armando and Ana Maria! They made us 2 adults and 2 teens (which are hard to please) feel so welcome in their home! We had an incredible experience from start to finish with them and walked away wanting to invite them out to dinner with us... that says a lot about their welcoming nature. We learned about chilis, which was a great jumping off point for making our own sauces. Don’t think twice about booking, just do it, you won’t be disappointed!

Hands-on, informative class that exceeded expectations. We enjoyed meeting and spending time with Fernando and Ana. Easy to see they take great pride in their classes and community. At the end of the session, we were able to take pictures of all the different dishes we cooked, which I'm excited to try replicating soon. Great way to spend a couple hours! Highly-recommend this experience!
