Eileen’s Carry Out

Beginning in January

The weekly menu of 4 or 5 items will be listed each Monday for Friday and Saturday pick up at my house at Playa Blanca 316 between 11 am and 3 pm.

I’m sorry I can’t offer delivery service at this time; however, I do hope to entice you with some different flavors that are delicious and satisfying and will tickle your taste buds. Everything will be made from scratch in my kitchen and will be good in your refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Pick up will be on my breezy front porch, accessed by ringing the doorbell to the right of my wooden double doors (the numbers 316 are on the upper right), and then coming up my garden path. Please wear a mask.

I don’t know which I enjoyed more, the socializing or the amazing food!


Thank you Eileen; it was a lot of fun and very inspiring.


Gracias for another wonderful year of cooking with you!


Eileen’s classes are always top notch… and tasty too!


We wanted to thank you for an excellent cooking class! We really enjoyed all the recipes, food, your house, the other cooks and how it was setup!! Hopefully we’ll be able to take another one next year. Thank you!


What a lovely time! Thank you so much Eileen; you make it so easy for us all. The menu was delicious.


We all had a lovely time yesterday and so enjoyed the selection! We agreed that they are definitely all do again recipes.


I really enjoyed your cooking class. I may even try cooking at home sometime. 😉


Congratulations Eileen on what I consider to have been a very successful cooking class today!


Thank you so much for today’s class. We always enjoy it. It’s not just the food…..it’s such a lovely atmosphere and the social component is a wonderful bonus! 


I just wanted to send a note of thanks for the fun we all had, not to mention the learning experience, at your home yesterday. Your house reminded me of your own version of Frieda’s Casa Azul. It was personal, functional and beautiful.

I hope to join the merry band for another lesson next month, but meanwhile, kudos to a fellow cook who has found a beautiful place to pursue a passion.
