About the Classes

Miriam’s Mexican Kitchen Cooking Classes are for foodies of all walks of life and every skill level. You will observe as Chef Miriam cooks up some wonderful Mexican dishes. Thereafter, you will learn about tequila and how to make the perfect Margarita followed by a hands-on experience creating delicious dishes from the menu at your station, under the guidance of Chef Miriam and her staff.

Miriam’s Cooking Classes feature a three-hour class in beautiful Puerto Vallarta’s city center. Classes are taught by Chef Miriam Flores. You’ll learn how to make a traditional six-course meal composed of appetizers, homemade salsas, main dishes and a dessert of chocolate and/or tropical fruits. Apart from learning traditional Mexican recipes, you will learn general cooking skills that can be applied when using all kinds of ingredients. The focus however, is on learning about local ingredients and traditional Mexican cooking methods.
