I ve been a professional Chef for 20 years, teaching in schools and universities in Mexico city and Quintana roo state and Ive cooked for hotels, restaurants, tourism fairs en international events since then, proudly representing Mexican gastronomy.
I discovered a great passion for teaching and decided to become a transmitter of Mexican Traditions and Culture.
In 2015, I materialized my dream and started Mexico Lindo Cooking, a culinary experience/cooking school where foodies from all over the world learn and taste the best of México.

My friend and I had a great time. I consider myself a fairly strong amateur chef and I felt I learned a TON. Worth every dollar for this unique experience. 110% recommend.

Claudia and her team were wonderful. She truly made us feel like we were cooking with her in her own kitchen. She provided historical context to the food we were preparing, customized some of the dishes based on our personal interests and even gave us a history lesson on the discovery of Mexico! The location is very unique and the generosity of Claudia and her staff greatly exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

We had an absolutely amazing experience with Claudia, Pau and Silv! We were able to learn about Mexican culture as well as varied cooking techniques. At the end we enjoyed an absolutely delicious feast! The private jungle location is beautiful, colourful and adds to the experience. This is such a unique and authentic opportunity! Do not hesitate to book this experience! Note: If the country you’re traveling from has a unique food item, Claudia would love to trade!

Je crois qu’une meilleure connaissance de la culture d’un peuple passe par la cuisine. Et c’est exactement la mission d’Alejandra et son école, Mexico Lindo, plantée au beau milieu de la jungle à quelques kilomètres à peine de Puerto Morelos. Accueil chaleureux et amicale, couleurs vives et flamboyantes du décor et fine organisation étaient au rendez-vous. J’ai appris à préparer salade de cactus, poivron pobleno farcis, salsa verde et j’ai même fait mijoter un porc effiloché absolument délicieux. L’équipe d’Alejandra est dévouée et souriante, on sent la complicité. Je suis sortie ravie de cette expérience, l’estomac bien rempli et très reconnaissante d’en savoir plus sur les ingrédients locaux qu’on n’ose prendre au supermarché!

We are a small group of four and visited the Lindo Cooking School while on vacation in December. We were inspired with Chef Alexandra’s culinary background and skills. Her story telling and sharing about Mexican culture and history helped us to understand how this informs regional cooking across the country today. The jungle environment where the school is located helped to create a truly wonderful cooking, dining and social experience. We would highly recommend this activity. Great value for the money!
