Classes & Cost
If you want to experience San Miguel de Allende as a local visit us.
Our classes immerse you into the local culture where you will experience a culinary “occasion” like no other.
Cooking experiences change daily and with each meal. You will make authentic Mexican dishes with fresh ingredients…no nachos for us! We are the real deal!
If you’re looking for professional chefs, you won’t find them here. Our classes are taught by the local Mexican men and women.
Don’t look for electric appliances…there are no food processors…everything is done by hand. Our cooking school in San Miguel is like no other…there are no fancy blenders instead you will use a molcajete!
Each kitchen is different and each is unforgettable.

Cost includes 6 nights at Casa Novem in San Miguel, hands on cooking classes, all meals, wine, beer, receptions, excursions, tours, bus tours, and all gratuities. In other words…you pay for “nothing” once you arrive here–except for your souvenirs! Airfare is not included. We accept checks and credit cards.
