We had such a wonderful time during this experience with Graciela! She was such a personable teacher, and she made the recipe very easy to follow. The pace was perfect, we never felt rushed or confused, and oh my gosh the food! The food was so incredibly delicious. I am also really confident I can make this dish on my own!

Gaby was very social, patient and fun. We had relatives logging in from Europe, India and the US, and this was proved to be wholesome bonding experience that we all cherished. Highly recommended.

Krystel's taco making lesson was fun and easy to follow along with. I couldn't believe how great the tacos were, too! It has only been a few days, and I already made them again at home on my own. I would definitely recommend this experience to other guests.
