Personable, charismatic Teaching Chef needed for Tourist Cooking School on Riviera Maya, conducting classes in Authentic Mexican cuisine to curious travelers. Classes conducted in English but Spanish spoken to our 2 Mayan women assistants.

WHAT IT IS: Tourists book in advance and come for a 5-6 hour adventure that includes

  • a light breakfast (we prepare)
  • a  4 hour cooking class time
  • a full sit down lunch of all dishes that were prepared with the help of our 2 Mayan women assistants.

Established Curriculum, 1st season completed with 500 happy students already passed through our doors. Many 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR: It's an asset if you have a Mexican heritage or connection, and can share something of Mexican culture with little stories along the way, while demonstrating the recipes. We really want someone who is totally in sync with authentic Mexican food. This is not strictly a business but is also a passion of the owners.

WHAT WE PROVIDE: We provide a set schedule of 2 - 4 confirmed classes every week from October through June; a competitive salary; and an opportunity for other activities like catering or selling prepared food items in our shop. We have successful recipes but welcome your input on new ones. We also do significant promotion and marketing so this might be a chance to get your name and profile 'out there'.

WHEN: School starts up for Season 2 in October.  We are looking for the right person, now.
