Details of Mexican Home Cooking School boutique accommodation, Tlaxcala, Mexico Cooking Schools Details for Mexican Home Cooking School boutique accommodation


A fully bilingual gourmet culinary course far beyond what is usually understood to be Mexican food. This is seven day stay in the high plateau of Mexico at the home of Señora Estela Salas Silva who is sharing her family recipes spanning Pre-Hispanic to present day.

Each course is formatted to the level of expertise of the student. You don’t need to be an advanced cook to learn this cuisine. The techniques are simple to learn, and you’ll be surprised how deliciously complex the flavors turn out. Though you will learn about the flavor nuances of a host of chiles, this is not a course about hot and spicy food. It is about flavors, as ancient as the Aztecs and as sophisticated as French cuisine. And of course the classes are fun.

We also operate as a bed and breakfast and accept guests who do not take the cooking course.

Typical Day

All my classes are in English, hands on and very small (usually limited to 4, maximum 6) which allows everyone to be involved. Classes are for 2 ½ to 3 hours per day depending on the recipes and enthusiasm of the students. Afternoons are free for exploring or relaxing. We have a taxi that works with us to provide afternoon trips to Puebla , ruins, and other locations nearby at various prices.

Bed and Breakfast includes breakfast. Other meals on request.

Age range, type of group

I have had students from 13 to 83 years old. Very often have families come to spend time learning something together. We have had fathers with sons, mothers with daughters and grandparents with grandchildren and all combinations between.

Sleeping and meals

Accommodations include a large double room, a two room suite and a private garden cottage. All accommodations have private bath and fireplace.

Our cooking week package includes accommodations, 5 cooking classes, all meals with beer, wine or margaritas at lunch and dinner, cocktail hour and live music night

Our Bed and Breakfast service includes cocktail hour, accommodations and gourmet breakfast.

Our class at the Mexican Home Cooking School
Christian -- Mar 24, 2013 06:55 pm
Flying to Mexico for a cooking class in the middle of a Minnesota winter seemed a perfect way to restore the circulation in our frostbitten fingers and toes.
As the van that picked us up from the airport rounded a final bend in the road and the generous gardens and patio of Jon and Estella’s bougainvillea laced hacienda came into view on the hill, it appeared that we were off to a fine start. Indeed, we were.
Our 5 days and nights at the school far surpassed even the best of our fanc ... more

we just returned from a fabulous week with Estella and John ( and MARIA ) at their home cooking school in Tlaxcala. The hacienda is gorgeous and very well designed for guests to feel comfortable. Each guest suite is beautifully decorated and very clean. The firewood is stocked daily so we enjoyed a morning and evening fire to deal with the very mild chill.. Days were sunny and warm and perfectly paced. We had lively cooking sessions in the mornings and the afternoons were free to pursue any adve ... more

Loved our stay!

Our week at Casa Carmelita was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations that we’ve had. My wife is an accomplished cook, and interested in learning more about traditional Mexican cooking. I’m a novice cook, and interested in pre- and post-Columbian Mexican history and culture.

The cooking lessons at Casa Carmelita were fantastic. We both found them fun and engaging (notwithstanding the disparity in our cooking experience). Estela and Jon shared numerous tips with each r ... more
