The Little Mexican Cooking School Grows at New Location
The Little Mexican Cooking School in Puerto Morelos, voted TripAdvisor best attraction in the Yucatan Peninsula, has relocated to a larger, more interactive space this month for the first time since its opening in 2009.
Instructing Chef Pablo Espinosa taught the first class in the new location October 18, introducing a new format that offers a fully hands-on experience. Departing from the original, demonstration-heavy curriculum, students are now invited to create the dishes they learn about from scratch. Classes continue to feature an in-depth survey of the history and culture of Mexican cuisine and its classic ingredients.
The new season brings a complete set of fresh menus, including items like Pescado a la Talla, avocado gazpacho, pork ribs in Adobo sauce and Salsa Borracha. The kitchen classroom features personal and group work stations and observation mirrors for demonstration, allowing students to choose their level of interactivity.
The school’s new home at Casa Caribe Seaside Retreat, a newly-opened bed-and-breakfast located on the main avenue, brings students closer to the ocean and town square and offers on-site accommodation, which includes breakfast service designed by Espinosa.
The new campus also offers wireless Internet and includes an expanded selection of items used during class in The Little Mexican Kitchen Shop, where students and guests can purchase local ingredients, cookware, artisanal gifts and The Little Mexican Cooking School Cookbook (3rd edition).
Classes are offered regularly each week; contact for upcoming availability. Small groups, special events and private classes can be accommodated upon request. The Little Mexican Cooking School and Puerto Morelos are located in Riviera Maya approximately 20 miles south of the Cancun airport.
