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.

Welcome To Casa Carmelita

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.
