Chef Denise Elliott and Cultural Anthropologist Renée Lagloire are thrilled at the success that their Buen Provecho Mexican cooking and culture classes had in the first two seasons. Juli Goff, Director of the language school Se Habla … La Paz was the motivating force behind Buen Provecho, a project she incubated and nurtured. After two very fun and successful years in La Paz, Renée and Denise decided that it was time to relocate to a more rural area. And so the move was made to a beautiful 2.5 acre property in San Bartolo, Baja California Sur complete with its own orchard. The village, accessible by private car or Aguila bus, is on the Trans-Peninsular Highway about 15 miles north of Los Barriles. It is an oasis known regionally for its artisanal fruit confections and empanadas. On the property, a teaching kitchen was masterminded and built by local artist Robin Ray Stewart (www.santanairon.net) working with talented stonemasons. Made of local stone and metalwork, the result is not only stunning but has great energy! Renée and Denise are very excited about the new teaching kitchen, and look forward to their third season starting November 22. The classes are five hours long and are scheduled through the first week of March for Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from noon to 5pm (although there is flexibility in that schedule). The Buen Provecho web site www.buenprovechobaja.com provides additional information and has proposed menus posted for each day of class for the upcoming season. Reservations are taken until there are four students enrolled, at which point the class is confirmed. For reservations or questions, contact info@buenprovecholapaz.com or 612-119-8034. Renée and Denise look forward to cooking with new and old friends in this third season. The East Cape area is beautiful, as is the village of San Bartolo … you’ll find it well worth the short trek!   Make the trip and visit Buen Provecho Cooking School Now in San Bartolo, Baja California Sur.
