Frank and I have been back in the States for almost two weeks now, working diligently updating our website and brainstorming new ideas for “Cook with Us.” The highlight of our five months in Todos Santos, Mexico was definitely getting to know our wonderful students and relishing the enthusiastic response to our cooking vacation program. Repeatedly, we heard “this is fantastic and so much more than cooking classes, maybe you should call it “cooking and more!” We strive to make this a memorable holiday for you, having fun in the kitchen is only part of the ingredients; we can also go hiking, fishing, shopping, boogie boarding and more. It is your vacation after all!
Several large family groups participated this season. Two families had six children between them; we organized special activities for the kids with their own guide. When it was time to depart there were tearful goodbyes as they did not want to leave us and all the fun they had.
I love the challenge of having another chef in the kitchen and this year we had the pleasure of two, each sent by their employers to gain more understanding of Mexican cuisine. It is rewarding teaching young professionals and feeling their excitement as they return to their restaurants to put that knowledge to use.
Cook with Us vacations are for everyone; the enthusiastic home cook, families and friends wanting to have a fun learning experience, travelers to Cabo and the surrounding area wishing to visit authentic Mexico, culinary students, and anyone with a yen for the taste of Mexico. Come join us. 2007-2008 classes are forming now!
