Kirsten's Cooking Classes in San Miguel de Allende
When teaching students from other nationalities here in Mexico, I like to give them a deeper understanding of Mexican cuisine and culture.
Please go to “UNESCO in the Mexican Cuisine post.” You will be surprised.
Italian, French, German and Scandinavian cuisines and more. My father had an exceptional love and interest in food, which I gladly became part of. His native Bavarian dishes were his first love
When living in Denmark, my mother’s home country, I gained a deep appreciating for its cuisine.
As we are looking to a future concerned with saving energy, there are many ways to preserve foods without it. We can learn by looking back.
As we are finding out more about how beneficial healthy eating is, learning how to prepare delicious healthy meals is in big demand. Healthy eating can be practiced in any cuisine of the world.
There are many wonderful remedies in your kitchen that also can be used as beauty products. As an example, I always tell the story of Estee Lauder, who concocted her first beauty products in her kitchen.
Day trips to food producers, such as cheese makers
All cooking classes are 55. USD or Mexican Pesos at current exchange rate. Payable in cash. Sorry, US restrictions no longer allows deposit of US checks in Mexico.
Classes are 2 to 2 ½ hours long, followed by a meal or tasting with non-alcoholic beverages. Recipe booklets are included.
Excursions vary depending on location, but generally are more or less the same as classes.
Classes require a minimum of 4 students. They are mostly demonstration style with some hands-on experience.
Classes can be taught in English, broken; but understandable Spanish, German and Danish.
Until further notice, classes and locations are by appointment.

Buen Provecho! Bon Appetit!
