From the fields students will head up to the ranch house to wash their hands and gather around the kitchen's central island for a talk with the chef.
The chef will start with a short biography, and then quickly move on to an in depth discussion of each recipe the students will learn how to prepare, including techniques and procedures they will be using.
Students will have ample opportunity to ask questions as they cook, and will get to taste and smell each of the ingredients they use. This activity takes 2 hours aprox.

Six years ago I arrived to Los Cabos and fell in love with this place, the magic of its microclimates allows the cultivation of wonderful vegetables, and also the variety of fish and seafood is endless. Living here is a culinary pleasure.
