Photo Diary: Cookin’ in Puerto Vallarta

One of the best things to do when traveling is trying the food. The only other thing I can think of that’s better than eating food, is learning how to cook new dishes. Food offers insight. A dish has the power to reflect the multiple identities unique to every culture.

Day 2 of Puerto Vallarta was accompanied with a morning spent at the market followed by a cooking session led by Enrique at “Cookin’ Vallarta.”

This experience is easily one of the best in Puerto Vallarta. It may not be zip-lining from mountain to mountain nor is it parasailing above the deep blue, but it’s an eye-opening learning experience. For anyone contemplating on joining “Cookin’ Vallarta”, I recommend it 100%. Enrique is an amazing story teller in the kitchen. His knowledge and experiences always had me listening.

This is the second cooking class I’ve taken in a different country and I want to make it a point of joining more cooking classes around the world. Wherever you are, try out an experience similar to this.


Menu for class:

  • Mole Poblano
  • Tamales
  • Gucamole (spicy and non-spicy)
  • **Extra Treat** Tequila Tasting
