Classes in Morelia

Zirita Taller de Experiencias Culinarias, Cynthia Martinez
Zirita is a cooking school located about 20 minutes outside of downtown Morelia and classes last approximately 6.5 hours (including pick-up and drop-off) and cost between $100 and $120 USD. Classes are led by Cynthia, a local chef and owner of San Miguelito Restaurant, or by some of Morelia’s best traditional cooks. They include a local market tour, tastings of local products, interactive instruction, written recipes, unlimited drinks (non-alcoholic), and two alcoholic beverages.


  • The main objective of this cooking school is to promote Mexican cuisine while at the same time, providing a steady income for the traditional cooks in Morelia by showcasing their unique culinary talents
  • The spacious cooking school has everything from modern appliances to outdoor ovens and pits…it is decorated impeccably with Mexican folk art from top to bottom
  • Cynthia thought about everything when constructing this school – if class participants have young children, there is plenty of outdoor space and a large tree house to keep them in busy while the cooking class is conducted
