This was a great experience and an opportunity for friends and family who are spread all over the United States to spend an afternoon together as if we were all in the same place. Everyone enjoyed themselves and Gaby did a good job of personalizing the experience. I learned more tips and techniques than I thought I would. I also liked that she also engaged the group in conversation and got to know a little about us while we were cooking. The time went by so quickly!

Excellent class! Learned a few simple techniques to make our tacos better that we can easily do on our own. Appreciated the extra information about the history of tacos, the margarita recipe and music selection. Class was easy to follow and well worth it.

This class was excellent! The host checked in with each person throughout the course to make sure we were on track and she mixed in small stories and Mexican history. The tacos came out way better than I was expecting. Absolutely delicious! The salsa was my favorite - easy and a way I’ve never tried before. Definitely will be using this recipe again and want to take her other classes. Thank you!
