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 wonderful Mexican dishes. Thereafter, you will learn about tequila and Mezcal and how to make the perfect cocktail at Miriam’s Bar 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.

Our cooking classes are taught by Le Cordon Bleu-certified Chef Miriam Flores. Chef Miriam Flores focuses on sharing the experience of growing up on a sustainable ranch in Jalisco, Mexico, where she learned to cook and farm from her grandmother. Students will learn smart strategies and techniques such as dry roasting chilies and grinding spices to acquire a more authentic flavor.
The classes are held at Chef Miriam’s private home in downtown Puerto Vallarta. Please refer to the directions on your ticket, or see the Contact page for a map. We will begin meeting at Miriam’s Sauce & Spirts bar on (Pipila #245 Centro) Then shuttled 10 blocks away to Miriam’s new location near El Barracuda restaurant to cook and dine.
There are about 10 steps to go up to the terrace where we will be dining, so please be aware of this if you have mobility issues or recent surgery.
Each class is a small group of 4-12 people, working in pairs, so that everyone can enjoy the hands-on experience. Please keep in mind that we will only run a class if we have a minimum of 4 people. We might ask you to come the next day or so if you are the only 1 or 2 people signing up.
