Jane creates a very unique dinner experience using locally sourced ingredients. She presents interesting dishes and also provides a story about the dish including the ingredients that were used as well as a bit of history. It was very relaxing.

Excellent class. Loved learning more about the people, culture and history

Can’t wait to try making salsas at home

Our group of 8 had an amazing time cooking with Jane! The food was amazing and she has such a beautiful property along the river. We learned about authentic Mexican cooking and can’t wait to put our new recipes into practice. Would definitely recommend booking a class with Chiles and Chocolate! So professional, so much fun and such delicious food!
I went to take the class after my mother took it and said I’d enjoy it as I work in the restaurant business. Sure enough it was delightful and a shift of perspective from my french cooking background. Could not recommend more!
I attended the class with my wife and parents and we all loved it. Jane and her assistant did an amazing job. The food was delicious, but the historical context and the importance of food to Mexican culture were really interesting and an unexpected delight. It was a much shorter drive from Huatulco than expected (30 mins or so), and the setting overlooking an incredible river valley was perfection. Would recommend to all my family and friends. Thank you!

The class was great fun and really learned a lot. And we got to eat some really good fish tacos. Will try another class next time we are in Huatulco.
