Mexican Cooking

Mexican Cooking

Discover the exquisite flavours, textures and diversity of Mexican food and its origins.

An abundant land rich in Indigenous culture and food, Mexico is the home of a delicious cuisine. In this five-hour hands-on workshop you will discover the exquisite flavours, textures and diversity of Mexican food and its origins.

With trainer Juanita’s guidance, you will learn how to work with fresh seasonal ingredients, traditional spices and ancient grains to create authentic Mexican meals.

Join us for a cooking workshop with a difference. Immerse yourself in a new culture, explore new tastes and learn about the history and traditions of food from around the world. Each workshop is hands-on and you will cook a variety of different dishes.

At the end of the workshop, you will sit down together for a shared feast of your own making. You will leave the workshop with new inspiration and skills and a few recipes to try out at home.


  • Corn tortillas (make our own)
  • Authentic Guacamole
  • Traditional Salsa verde
  • Mexican Rice
  • Refried Pinto Beans
  • Juanita’s Pulled Pork tacos
