About Us

The McAllen Culinary Academy, located on 10th Street in McAllen, offers cooking classes geared to those who have a desire to learn and enjoy cooking, without being intimidated in the process. Our chef (Marcel Fortuin) has over 36 years of experience in the culinary field and enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge with you.

Classes are hands on and our goal is upon completing the evening's class, you can recreate the evening's recipes at home.

Our recipes are created so you can go to any grocery store, purchase ingredients and make a wonderful meal. There is no need for specialty shops, we can teach anyone to make great meals with ease.

Our classes start with an overview of the evening. Next we go the kitchen, where you receive instruction and join in the cooking. You can participate as little or as much as you like. Once we have finished cooking we move on to the dining-room where we enjoy our work!

Join us in an atmosphere of discovery and enjoyment.

Classes are limited in size to provide you with a comfortable, enjoyable evening in which you receive lots of personal attention.

We Demystify Cooking!
