Marilau Welcomes You to the Best Ancestry Mexican Cooking Classes

in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, featuring 200 years of Mexican traditions

¡Hola y muy bienvenidos to my Cooking School!

Bienvenido As in all cultures, those born and raised in the society are the best source of knowledge about traditions. As a Mexican native, I inherited my Mexican cuisine from my previous generations. And my passion too!

Come to share the magic that happens in my cooking classes whenever I share with you my inherited knowledge and very fresh ingredients mixed with a variety of spices and herbs to season, or the miracle that happens when other times I use dry fruits, seeds and nuts to thicken and season the large list of traditional Mexican sauces (salsas).

Witness the colors, aromas, and surprising transformations of the dry chiles, while turning into wonderful Mexican sauces (salsas) with flavors that you’ll find nothing less than “amazing”. This sensory experience, combined with your opportunity to cook side-by-side with me and then sit down to a fine, abundant meal you prepared with my teaching passion, provides an unforgettable culinary experience in my cooking classes.

Weekday cooking classe emphasize the hands-on experience and the selection of your own menu; students gather around and immerse in Ancestry Mexican cuisine, and work  to prepare a full three courses lunch.

In my cooking classes you experience: conversation, history, questions, and laughter fill the room, along with the savory scents of roasting fresh chiles, toasting dry chile, garlic, onion, roast tomatoes, cilantro, tomatillos, cumin, cinnamon, and many other “Authentic Mexican” flavors. Cooking class completed, everyone sits down at a long wooden table to enjoy the fruits of their labor, along with a “jarrito de agua fresca de Jamaica”.

I take pride in customizing my cooking classes to suit the needs of all students (that don´t have to stick to a fix classes program calendar), in my cozy kitchen with its antique Mexican molcajetes, metates, cazuelas and ollas.  Just contact us to arrange your own class, with a maximum of 4 students per class to insure individualized attention to each.

As we relished the range of savory and sweet tamales, including the delicious Oaxacan tamales wrapped in banana leaves, we began to feel that we were learning not just the techniques but also the aesthetics of Mexican Cuisine.
