About Laura’s Cocina
Laura Ramirez love of cooking started at a young age. She learned how to cook from her late grandmother in the state of Puebla, Mexico who took her under her wing when she was only 5 years old. In the years following that she continued to practice cooking with her family and started giving small cooking lessons to friends during her time in college both in Mexico and the U.S. After graduating from university as a Spanish and English language teacher, she started giving Mexican cooking classes officially in 2008 to compliment her language classes.
Mexican Cooking Classes
Laura’s classes teach you how to make real home-cooked Mexican meals. The food that you learn to make in her classes are the same meals that Mexican families eat every day in their homes around the country. During the cooking class you will start each day by going to the local fresh market, buying the fresh ingredients, and then coming back to Laura’s Cocina (Laura’s Kitchen in Spanish) to cook the meals. The day ends by eating the delicious food on Laura’s beautiful rooftop patio overlooking the historic center of Querétaro.
