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!

very informative, and appreciated the short history snippets along the way. the tacos tasted awesome by the end, my favourite part was making the tortillas from scratch. The team did a great job of sending a prep guide before so you have everything setup before you start, and mention good substitutions depending on your equipment or diet.

Loved the class. Enjoyed making all of the components of the taco from scratch and most importantly the delicious result. The tacos were amazing. This is my third class with them and look forward to taking another one. Highly recommend any of their classes.

Fantastic experience! We really enjoyed Lorena’s spirit and clear instructions. We had a couple of birthdays in our group and she put in the effort to pull out a cute little cake! In terms of the actual cooking itself, make sure you read the instructions beforehand and prep everything you need and chop what needs to be chopped. It will make your life a lot easier! The recipe is super easy to follow along with — I will definitely be making this again!
