We really enjoyed our tamales virtual cooking class with Arturo! It was 8 colleagues who participated in 3 different time zones for this fun, unique experience. Some of us who live outside of California had some difficulty finding exact ingredients in advance, however Arturo provides some suggestions for substitutions. Arturo did an excellent job of making everyone feel comfortable and included throughout the entire time. He explained the history and method of preparing tamales, which was really interesting. He is friendly, kind and funny which makes for an excellent instructor. We all had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend Arturo's tamales making class. Sure, our tamales didn't come out looking really pretty, but they sure tasted great! And that homemade salsa recipe...you won't regret it. Thanks Arturo, we all have a new appreciation for making tamales!

What a wonderful experience! We had so much fun celebrating our Grandpa's birthday with Arturo. We were able to learn a new recipe and eat a meal together even though we are 2k miles apart right now. And, kids, parents and grandparents were all able to follow along. Thanks for teaching us the art of tamale making, Arturo!

This was a great experience. I have wanted to make homemade tamales for a long time (20 yrs) but felt overwhelmed by recipes. Arturo led us step by step through the process and my tamales turned out great! We was very open to helping others substitute other ingredients or cooking utensils. Very hands on experience. We were busy for the whole experience but Arturo spent time making sure we were going to be successful! If you love tamales or want to learn more about Mexican cooking, I definitely recommend this experience.
