Mexican Cuisine with a Modern Twist in a Local Home - Day Trip

Manu is a professionally-trained chef who loves to create innovative, modern fusions of classic Mexican dishes. After completing culinary school in his hometown of Guadalajara, he traveled abroad and lived in Canada, Spain, and Norway where he worked in a series of professional kitchens. After being away for 6 years, Manu returned to Mexico where he could indulge in his love of the food from home. Now happily settled in Puerto Vallarta, Manu is a private chef working in the tourism industry. Feel free to ask him for his recommendations for the best places in town to get truly authentic dishes such as aguachile and pozole, or amazing street food such as tacos al pastor and churros. Manu lives in a small, modest home located close to the center of the city. Join Manu is his home for a meal rooted in Mexican cuisine with influence from Asia and the Mediteranean. You can look forward to enjoying dishes such as fresh ahi poke with avocado, sopa de elote con rajas con crema (corn soup with creamy poblano peppers), platanillo de res (boneless beef shank) with nopales (cactus), and cacao arroz con leche (rice pudding with cacao). If you book a cooking experience, join Manu in his kitchen and learn to prepare 2-3 dishes from scratch in a one-hour cooking lesson before you sit down together to enjoy your meal. Manu also offers an optional market tour add-on; meet Manu at his home before setting out for the Mercado Cinco de Diciembre, located a short five minute walk away. Together you will browse the stalls where you will have an opportunity to experience all the sounds, smells, and colors of a traditional Mexican marketplace, purchasing incredients for your cooking experience together. Note that Manu is experienced in catering to all types of tastes, allergies, and dietary restrictions. Upon booking, please be sure to let him know your preferences.
