We are passionate about home cooked fresh food and Mexican flavors.  Hector Guerrero is a self taught chef who has spent years cooking with other chefs and creating his own spin on family recipes.  He loves cooking for friends and family, and thoroughly enjoys sharing and teaching others about his discoveries, along with all that he has learned in his travels and varying work experiences.  Chuparrosa brings the cooking classes and parties to you, but we take care of every detail.  We are well versed in cooking Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan as options.  We have searched for our favorite authentic Mexico food in Portland, to learn that it's right here at home.  Chuparrosa is the best authentic Mexican food in Portland.

COOKING CLASSES FOR ADULTS:   Class is 3 hours and costs $250; Hector shops for fresh ingredients right before the class (ingredients are additional, depending on what you choose to learn-presented with a receipt.).  At the end of the class, Hector plates and presents the food as a meal.  This is more of a demonstration than a hands on follow along class.  Hector gives very detailed instruction and information about the dishes, ingredients and process.  2 people: $300 (each additional client add on $50)  Contact us for cooking class suggestions, or let us know what your interests are and we will give you suggestions. 

Invite your friends and family to your space, and we will bring the cooking class to you. We will design the class according to your interests....whether its learning about delicious and healthy simple dishes for cooking regularly with your family, or more intricate and unique recipes for hosting a dinner party, or fun and yummy appetizers for a cocktail party.

Hector begins all classes with some basic information and history about ingredients.  If you are interested in learning some Spanish, he will mix it in as well!  At the end of the class you will of course celebrate and eat your hard work!

Hector loves teaching English and Spanish to children.  We are excited to bring this fun program to you!  Whether it is a preschool program, daycare, camp, Hector brings joy and fun to children through repetitive and creative Spanish activities.  Consistency is key in learning and remembering language, so we think a weekly visit is perfect, but of course we are open to your desires and needs.  Contact us for more information, and to meet Hector to see if it's a good fit!
