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.

Carol23Maryland Incredible culinary experience with Marilau...
In a word, WOW! This was the most authentic, informative, enjoyable and scrumptious cooking experience ever! This is the real deal. No Americanization of Mexican foods. The dishes we prepared were selected from a long list of menu options all of which represent authentic ancestral cooking that reproduce original flavors and preparation. Two couples spent about three and one half hours with Marilau watching, learning, and eating the results of our labors! Extraordinary in every sense and we will take another class with this magnificent cook and lovely woman who is so gracious and generous with her time and knowledge. Do not miss this extraordinary experience. In view of all the fantastic food in San Miguel our meal with Marilau might have been the very best one! Enjoy!
