My wife and I had the distinct pleasure of joining owner operator Jane on this wonderful feast extravaganza during our recent visit to Huatulco. If you’re a foodie lover, then this is a delightful dinner that you will not soon forget.

Jane hails from Canada, but has been a long time local resident and well established entrepreneur in Oaxaca, Mexico for many years now.

I always love taking food tours when traveling around the world. To experience the local culture, the people and the cuisine when visiting new destinations.

It’s a huge part of the overall travel experience.

We’ve enjoyed walking food tours in my travels to India, Vietnam, China and other exciting destinations. But what my wife and I experienced on this Chiles & Chocolate Cooking Classes – Village to Table Dinner, was simply extraordinary!

Chiles & Chocolate Cooking Class Lounge

It’s amazing to see what can be beautifully created and presented by a professional culinary expert. Using simple, natural and healthy earthly ingredients.

This is a dinner like no other you will experience, served in excellence by your host Jane and her staff.

Chiles & Chocolate Village to Table Dinner Tour

Your Dinner Experience includes round trip transportation, all your drinks and this full course dinner. You should expect to be away for at least 3 hours from your hotel.
