Chef David Jahnke Cooking Classes Lab was created in March of 2018.
It’s pretty amazing that this super achiever, Chef David Jahnke, has accomplished so much in just 3 years when he was contemplating leaving his position as the head of the Gastronomy department at the University of University of Celaya to start his own business. Chef David Jahnke’s classes now rank 3rd out of over 700 cooking classes in Mexico and #1 in Guanajuato state.
His school never really changed during the Covid pandemic. The classes were held online instead of in person and a YouTube channel supplements Chef Jahnke’s learning program with additional free education for all of his students. With over 160 Virtual Classes under his belt, the chef has it down, using some pretty advanced technology and a Huawei cellphone with a Leica camera as it’s primary instrument.
Chef David Jahnke has developed over 500 recipes during the pandemic; more than enough to fill a cookbook and there are plenty of people in SMA who wish that he would. He teaches every type of ethnic cooking and conducts tours like the recent two day mushroom foraging classes with SMA mushroom authority, Arif Towns Alonso, at Rancho Calixto in Amealco, Mexico.
In person classes are filling up quickly although a change in the number of Covid cases may put classes back online again. Check with him for updates as he can easily shift from in-person to online classes. Either way, you’ll get one of the best culinary educations with Chef David Jahnke. There’s a reason why it’s one of the top cooking school in Mexico.
Best news: there will be a new, little sister in the kitchen with Itzayana soon and the Jahnke’s are excited to welcome her home.
