Guatemala Cooking Classes Chef Teresa

Guatemala Cooking Classes introduce you to the flavors of ancestral cooking in our Mayan Kitchen San Pedro. Lake Atitlan Guatemala Cooking Classes are perfect for people who love traditional foods and want to learn how to make these dishes.

Lake Atitlan Cooking Classes introduce you to the flavors of ancestral Maya cooking while providing an incredible opportunity to be a part of daily life with a Tz’utujil Maya family.

Enjoy private and small-group Lake Atitlan Guatemala Cooking Classes, including a tour of a traditional Guatemalan market, where you will learn about unique regional ingredients. This isn’t a cooking demonstration, it’s a hands-on cooking experience.

Participants will prepare and cook the food together with the guidance of Chef Teresa. Throughout the class, Chef Teresa will explain the ingredients, tradition, and history behind each dish so you can understand why they are so important to Guatemalan/Mayan culture.

Lake Atitlan Guatemala Cooking Classes.

Your unique culinary experience begins with an exploration of the bustling indigenous indoor/outdoor market to purchase locally produced meats and produce and discover the incredible diversity of ingredients in Guatemalan cuisine. As soon as you step into the market you will be tantalized by the sights and smells.

Then off to the home of Chef Theresa where you will learn to prepare some of the most representative and delicious Guatemalan/Mayan main courses.

When finished, each dish is served fresh right away.

What makes our cooking classes so special and unique is the small class size, the fresh ingredients, and cooking in an authentic indigenous kitchen.

We believe that a cooking class is an interesting and fun way to learn about Guatemalan culture.

Please let us know beforehand if you have any special diets or allergies so we can modify the cooking class to your taste.  We always cook with fresh ingredients from the local market.
