Mexican Cooking Classes

Cocina Corazón's Mexican cooking classes will take you on a journey of flavors and aromas through a unique cooking experience! Cooking at home creates emotional connections with our loved ones, and makes us feel better about ourselves.

Mexican cooking classes are tailored to your desire. Cooking sessions include two options: signature or traditional dishes from specific regions of Mexico. Almost all of my dishes can be prepared to fit any diet - Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free

“Maybe it’s your birthday, perhaps you belong to a supper club, you need to bond with your family, or you just love a ladies night out with your besties. Hosting and in-home cooking class is an amazing way to create memorable moments! But if you prefer, we could cook in my kitchen studio. Let yourself be seduced by the sophisticated flavors and textures of the Mexican cuisine” .

-Barbara Santos-McAllister

What To Expect

To ensure that you have the best experience during your Mexican cooking class, here is what you can expect from Cocina Corazón, and how best to prepare for your class:

Gather your favorite group of people, Please choose a date and time: In-Home or in My Kitchen, Select a dish: traditional or signature.

When your date and number of people are confirmed, full payment will be required to lock the date. You may select your payment option - PayPal, ApplePay, Venmo, company checks for corporate classes or Credit Card (PayPal and credit card, commission apply). For personal check, please send an email or call. Cocina Corazón's fees are per person. The fee will be confirmed by email once the dish selection is made.

One day before the class, I will send the recipes by email for you to print for every attendee. I am available to answer questions at any time. I will take care of the main cookware, but we might use some items from your kitchen as well. For in-home classes, the kitchen should be clean and ready to use. General cleaning is not included in the fee.

I will arrive one hour before the cooking class time, to set up. We will have an ice-breaker moment to introduce ourselves and spend a few minutes explaining the cooking process and safety tips, so everybody feels comfortable and relaxed during the cooking class. In order to stick to the schedule, some recipes need to be prepared in advance. Drinks and/or music are encouraged! For In-Home classes: The host provides drinks and/or extra snacks, and dishware for the guests. For My Kitchen classes, fresh water, dishware and silverware are available. Guests are welcome to bring their own drinks to my kitchen. Please have (or bring) some containers for leftovers.

Please make sure your kitchen is clean before the cooking class. Also, during the class, we strive for a “clean-as-we-go” policy to keep the kitchen orderly during the class. Everyone helps! so you are left with a tidy kitchen at the end. I normally clean/pick-up my equipment before I leave. General cleaning is not included as part of the fee. For My Kitchen classes, everyone helps! 🙂

We encourage to apply the Golden Rules to keep everyone safe during the cooking class:

  • Wash your hands (before and after cooking, going to the toilet, handling meats, sneezing, coughing, etc.)
  • Clean-as-we-go-policy
  • Wash utensils when shifting between ingredients
  • Report any allergies
  • Use gloves if you wear nail polish
  • Wear an apron during the cooking process
  • Be extra careful with the knives
  • Use potholders for every pot in the stove
  • Avoid wearing dangling jewelry during class
  • Keep long hair tied back
  • We are fully vaccinated for Covid19
  • Please do not attend the cooking class if you feel any Covid19 symptoms. We can always reschedule!

As long as you can put a pot and a chopping board down (In the kitchen or dining room), we can always cook. But if you are not sure, let's cook in my kitchen studio!
