    Upcoming Classes    

Our cooking classes are very popular. It's all about learning in a relaxed and friendly environment, in a small group, with people that have one thing in common: a love for Mexican food. 

You come in for an evening, we demo some deliciously authentic Mexican food, you cook some with us, then we all sit down and have a feast with it. It's a cunning plan, you know? We want you to fall in love with the food so much, that you'll end up coming back to buy our ingredients! It's simple and honest.

We have juice and water on tap, but we don't mind if you want to bring a couple of beers or a bottle of wine for the sit-down-meal end of things. 

For one evening our gorgeous shop transforms itself into an intimate cooking venue where we exchange stories, cook together and share a meal; pretty much the whole Mexican kitchen experience.

Join us for one of our workshops and experience a true Mexican welcome! 

What to Expect from our Classes

When you come into our space, you are walking into our kitchen and pantry. We want you to feel at home at our Mexican home. Our classes are relaxed, educational and fun. You’ll be learning to cook Mexican food the same way most Mexicans do: standing around the hob, asking loads of questions while watching someone very experienced cooking a meal peppered with tons of stories on Mexican ingredients and their history. We love geeking out, but we make it fun. 

We start with a snack – because who wants to cook on an empty stomach right?! – Then we cook together for about 2.5 hours with a  few tastings in between and we sit down to a long table meal to enjoy the fruits of our labour.  The price includes everything except alcohol; if you want to enjoy a couple of beers or some wine with your meal, by all means, bring it along with you.

At the end, you’ll go home with your beautifully printed recipe booklet in our keep folder, loads of knowledge about Mexico’s gastronomic history and a belly full of delicious Mexican food. 

Our classes are a mixture of hands on and demonstration, some classes are heavier on demo, some are heavier on the hands on element, it all depends on which class you’re attending.

What attendees thought

When you leave this class you won’t just be able to wow your friends and family with fresh tortillas you will also be able to make some fillings for tacos! Lily is such a great teacher. Her passion for Mexican food comes through in every word she speaks. If you love tacos this class is a must.


Lily’s classes are always a joy to attend. Delicious recipes, a lovely shop/workshop place and most of all Lily herself. With her energy and anecdotes about Mexican food and culture, as well as her personal fun stories, you never see time pass and you leave with a full belly, wondering when you can book the next one! 


Supper Clubs at Picado feels like a combination of scoring a table at the most exclusive restaurant in town and being invited into the warm, intimate kitchen of the best cook you know.

Lily may serve you something you’ve never had before, and you will love it. It’s a fantastic way to learn more about Mexican ingredients and cooking. And it’s so fun. One of the best nights I had all year. 


Imagine you’ve somehow made it onto one of those Netflix food shows. There is a smiling host and amazing food. You meet new and interesting people and bond over your love of food. That is what it is like to go to supper club at Picado. Lily is ready with delicious food and delightful stories. You leave knowing more about Mexican food and culture. A unique date night/friend night experience not to be missed.
