I highly recommend this experience to anyone! Our hostess was warm, welcoming, and very inclusive and interactive throughout the experience. The instructions were easy to follow, and she gave us great alternatives/adjustments in real time. The food was DELICIOUS, and she talked about all kinds of different tacos found throughout the various regions of Mexico. My team loved it!

This was such a fun, interactive and delicious experience and it made me feel more secure about making flavourful tacos and realise how fun and simple it is to make great food. We connected with the host and it really felt like we had a cooking session in a kitchen in Mexico. I can highly recommend this one. Im making my own tacos and salsa just a few days after the experience because it was so easy and delicious. I could have not have done it without the great expertise of the host.

I registered my dad as a surprise for his birthday, and he LOVED it. He is a great cook and has been to Mexico many times, but he said he still learned some new things and the tacos were the real deal. He also said Graciela was warm and inviting and had the class structured perfectly in terms of pace and timing. At the end of the session, they got to see a high rise view of the sunset in Mexico City, which is pretty cool when we've all been stuck at home most of the year. I am so glad I found this class and we all look forward to doing more with Graciela and her team!
