Mexican cookery classes in the UK and abroad

I keep coming across cookery schools in Mexico, many of which make me long to return! I mentioned Los Dos a couple of months ago; based in the Yucatan, it's had a huge amount of press in the USA and the website has lots of recipes as well as information about the school and its classes. I've just been reading the blog on the De La Tierra website, a school based in Oaxaca, definitely one to bear in mind for my next trip. The view from the kitchen is tempting enough!

Obviously, there's no shortage of cookery schools in Mexico itself, but despite the increasing popularity of the cuisine here in the UK, cookery classes specialising in Mexican food are still hard to find and often book up early. If you're looking for hands-on experience, here's a round-up of forthcoming classes:

Hablemos Cookery School, Broadstairs, Kent
Offer a selection of Mexican, Spanish and Latin American classes on Saturdays. Cost £80.

Divertimenti, London and Cambridge
Has a couple of Mexican masterclasses with Sofia Larrinua-Craxton, sadly both sold-out over the next couple of months (cost £99). Hopefully they'll do some more. For more information about Sofia, see her website. She also offers classes at home.

Eat Drink Talk, London, EC1
Has a Mexican cookery evening in early March, as well as others from all around the world. Cost £85.

Cooking with Chillies, Nottingham
If you want to get to grips with this fiery ingredient, this 1 day course, as featured on Mexgrocer.co.uk looks all-encompassing! Cost 115.
