invites you to her San Miguel de Allende home
to learn the secrets of Mexican cooking.
"For anyone interested in learning more about Mexican food and culture, Reyna Polanco Abraham's San Miguel de Allende kitchen is the place to be. Reyna was brought up in Coatepec, Veracruz and delights in sharing family recipes from her Mexican gulf coast state. She also enjoys cooking traditional dishes from Guanajuato, Michoacán, Jalisco, Puebla, Oaxaca, and as far as Yucatán.
Reyna's classes are in English, with printed recipes for everyone. Her fun-filled classes are enjoyed by locals and travelers. After each session Reyna prepares a comida (full afternoon meal) of the dishes she teaches that day, including drinks, dessert and coffee. Everyone looks forward to the sumptuous food - and having a good time."
