I am a self-described foodie and love to cook, so whenever I travel, I try to take a cooking class or two. I ran across Mexican Home Cooking School online and was immediately intrigued, as I have never gone on a trip specifically to learn how to cook. I contacted them via their website and Jon got back to me...

Hi SunshynGrlSD Thank you for taking the time to write a review. When you get home and back to “real life” I know that the world takes over and it is an effort to sit down and write. So both Jon and I thank you for the effort. We really do try to provide a Home Cooking Experience and it...

We came to have fun, learn something about Mexican cooking, and share an adventure with friends. We were not disappointed. Our hosts, Jon and Estela were warm and friendly. Estela has been cooking since she was quite young, learning from her mother as she worked in her parents' restaurant. She shared with us traditional meals, sauces, desserts and how she...

Hola Eileen, It is wonderful to hear that you had such a good time here. Thank you for letting us know. Glad to hear that you like the trips and the after dinner conversations and all the other things that you mentioned that made your trip.

If you enjoy cooking Mexican food and want a good understanding of cooking with chilis plus want time to enjoy the Puebla area, this cooking school is for you. Each day we cooked for about three hours, making our own lunch and dinner. Lunch was usually a soup and an entree and dinner was an entree and side. Everything was...

I got to spend a week with Jon and Estele, learning how to make traditional Pueblan food. The trip as a whole was amazing. Jon arranged for private transportation for me to and from Mexico City, at a reasonable cost. The property itself was great, on the edge of a beautiful small lake on the outskirts of Tlaxcala. The room...

I have never written a review for trip advisor about vacations before, but I felt compelled to write about this charming culinary getaway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Carmelita; from the insanely gorgeous gardens to the simple yet enchanting accommodations that...

I just finished a week at Mexican Home Cooking School and want to give my review and opinions on what Estela is offering at her school. I am a cook, not a professional but I do have a long term experience in the kitchen. I live in Mexico and have been studying its cuisine for the last 20 years. I...

It has been two months since our stay at Casa Carmelita with friends. I've never written a review before but feel compelled to, our stay was truly remarkable.

We spent a precious week of vacation here based on the rave reviews on this website. Yet for over $400 a night per couple – a significant amount in Mexico – this was one of the strangest and stingiest travel experiences we’ve ever had (and I spent 25 years as a food and travel journalist, so I’ve seen plenty). The...

Dear Heidi Y I am confused by many points you made as they don't match mine or other guests, but enough to say that you were here four days and not a week - though from your review it must have felt like a week. And I am sorry you didn't express your dissatisfaction at the time. If we had...
