The experience was very well curated - easy to follow, but full of tips you wouldn't find in any old recipe. We had a blast!

My work team and I had a great time cooking together under Gaby's instruction! The pacing of the class was perfect, and Gaby kept things personal by asking us questions and engaging us in the conversation. Plus, the food turned out great!

We booked this experience for a company team bonding and it was a fun learning and interactive experience! Graciela provided useful pro tips and historical context as we all went through the prep and cooking process together.

Krystal was so warm and friendly! The tips and tricks we learned changed the way we cooked for sure. Everything was deceptively simple to make so everyone's recipe turned out really tasty. 10/10 would do again!
