Chef Issi was very knowledgeable, personable and fun. We enjoyed the trip around town foraging for ingredients followed by a fun, hands-on class in his home. The experience as a whole was very authentic and the end product was delicious!
The chef picked my wife and I up right near the cruise port shortly after our arrival. We went shopping for ingredients and sampled some fresh tortillas. There was only one other person in the class with us. We were able to prepare, cook, and eat many different dishes. The food was incredible and we mad our own margaritas to accompany our food. I highly recommend this class.
Our tour guide met us at the agreed upon location and time. Our group had 4 persons. We had a large comfortable van to travel in. We made 4 stops to pick up supplies for our meal. The meal was hands-on and very educational. We enjoyed a great meal and drinks at the end. Our tour guide brought us back to the meeting point afterward. I have no hesitation recommending this event.
Wow! We made the best Mole I have ever had. Also made a stuffed Chili Relleno with big flavor and great presentation as well as other tasty side dishes. Chef Issi has got the gift! I am only sorry that I didn't know he does a chef's table. I would have scheduled it but it was my last day in Mexico. Thank you for what you have taught me, Chef Issi! My friends and I will enjoy it for a long time to come!
Issi and family were amazing hosts. This is s a special event if you are lucky enough to get a spot in this class. Issi, a trained chef imparts not only Mexican charm but the history of Cabo and shared spices and food with other cultures. We shopped where the locals go and then went to Issi's family home with a full commercial kitchen where we created amazing tamales and the best margaritas. My 13 year old even had fun with me and two other couples 2 friends and a husband and wife. Great time....book it....you won't regret it.
This was a very fun experience. Chef Issi took us to local specialty markets for some of the ingredients for lunch. We are staying in a condo in the general area where we shopped so I have gone back to several of the markets already. We pressed our own tortillas and made some amazingly good pork skewers. A fun adventure for me while my husband went out on an ATV adventure.
Chef Issi was fabulous. 3 couples from Texas took this class along with a couple from Wisconsin. Everyone was blown away with the whole experience. From shopping for local ingredients to preparing our delicious lunch in Chef Issis home, it was a great experience. We highly recommend it and will do it again when we return to beautiful Cabo.
I loved this tour. Issi picked us up at the mall as indicated and on time. 8 of us went shopping and then to his home to prepare the meal.Both food and historical information were given and added to the whole experience. Two thumbs up to Issi and Lucy for a excellent day.
This was a terrific experience! Issi Jr. and Issi Sr. were wonderful teachers and guides about Mexican cooking and culture. If I was staying longer I would have done another course because the meal cooked varies based on the day of the week Issi has an Al Pastor rotisserie in his outdoor kitchen in the back deck!. The recipes are easy enough to make that you can replicate them back home and they will come out great. We made the best chicken tamales I have ever eaten.
An incredible tour. Chef Issi took us to markets spice, vegetable, meat, tortilla, etc we never would have gone to and he bought ingredients for our lunch. He then took us to his home where he prepared margaritas with a little help from us and then we made all sorts of appetizers, salsas and main dishes, He prepared dessert for us which was delicious and was accompanied by a spun sugar ball. His wife was with us doing clean up and after awhile his children came home. Such fun, so yummy and a wonderful experience. We would definitely do it again.
My wife and I participated in the cooking class. It exceeded our expectations. It was a great experience
and Issi, our host, was great and he is a proud Mexican and was excited to show us his local shops where all of the locals shop. We enjoyed buying the food that we were going to cook. He was a great cook and host. I would recommend this class to all. We even connected him to our concierge at the resort that we stayed at. Great experience. Highlight of our trip to Cabo San Lucas.
Fantastic tour. One of the best we've ever taken. Guide is a mexican chef and they take us to traditional mexican food stores where tourists do not go to. We got to see how traditional tortillas were made then the guide took us to his home nice where we cooked several dishes as a group and really got to know the mexican culture. Don't hesitate at all....book this tour!
My husband and I were the only students in the class that day. We had a FABULOUS time and cooked amazingly delicious food. We got to meet the chef's family and extended family that day, which was a nice treat. We experienced some great authentic Mexican local produce, cheese, meats and margaritas. I highly recommend this tour if you are a foodie or not. My husband is a carnivore but still enjoyed prepping the vegetable side dishes that I got to enjoy. Making corn tortillas from absolute scratch was an amazing experience, from buying the corn masa, grinding it, forming it and cooking it. We had so much food that we skipped dinner that night. I highly recommend this class
My wife and I really enjoyed being invited into the Chef's home, learning about the origins, sourcing, and preparing Mexican food from the sauces, to the meats, to the desserts. The classes are small by design. We would do it again.
Great experience. Small group with individual attention from chef. My wife and I helped purchase all ingredients at local shops. Very cool. And then went to the kitchen to prepare paella, guacamole, chile relleno, ceviche. Delicious food and awesome experience. Definitely recommend!
Absolutely, one of the best activities that we have done in years.....
I highly recommend this tour. It was easy to get to the meeting point from our cruise ship. Issi and his family were informative and engaging. Visiting the various shops for the shopping was a unique experience most tourists never get. We each had jobs, like picking out the peppers, tomatoes or spices. When we arrived at their house, it was clean and well laid out for cooking. There were five courses of food! Bring your appetite. We helped by mixing things, chopping, rolling our tamales and making salsas and sauces. There were margaritas, stuffed peppers, chips and salsas, ceviche, the tamales and a dessert which Issi made. All the ingredients were things we picked up on our errands before the cooking started. At the end we also got to take home a recipe book that contained directions for what we made, as well as other dishes. I cannot recommend this tour enough! We even got a ride back to the cruise ship because everyone on the tour was from the ship.
My husband and myself, took this cooking class and LOVED it!!! Issi is a wonderful teacher! While we stopped at various places for fresh ingredients, he told us some of the history of Mexico and it's flavors. He and his lovely family shared their home, and had us all 5 adults and 2 teenagers prepping, chopping, mixing, and cooking. Tuesday is tamale day, plus we made pico de gallo, guacamole, refried beans and chili rellenos by request. Issi is very accomodating, asking about any allergies or spicyness preferences. We learned quite about about food and had a wonderful time with all of our cooking partners, and had full bellies when we left! It was just a really lovely time all in all!!!
This was so fun!! Issi was amazing and very accommodating. He is a great chef! The menu was to make paella and it was delicious. But, we also made SEVERAL other dishes that were also equally amazing! Thank you, Issi, for a great day! I highly recommend this cooking class!
