I did the class with my 8 year old son. He was delighted with the experience, as was I. Gaby gave us great attention and support as we navigated the cooking steps which involved some fast frypan work with tortillas. It was fun to learn new dishes and eat the fresh cooked food.

This class was awesome! We made chilaquiles with red sauce and enchiladas with green sauce. The food was AMAZING. Gaby was our teacher and she was super sweet, patient, and her instructions were very clear. I am already planning to sign up for the al pastor taco class and the chile relleno class in December! Thanks!!

I learned to make two wonderful dishes from scratch. I had a small amount of experience cooking Mexican food but I learned such a lot from this amazing experience.

Wonderful experience - highly recommend! This class was the highlight of my week. The recipes we made were delicious, very well-explained, and I'm already excited to make everything again. The instructor was friendly, informative, shared great stories and was a joy to spend time cooking with and learning from. They also shared an awesome PDF before the class that was so helpful in preparing for the class. Already excited to visit Mexico City someday in the future!

Great cooking class with Gabby! She provided a helpful grocery list in advance and the pace of the class was great and easy to follow. The food (enchiladas and chilaquiles) was absolutely amazing and Gabby shared a lot of interesting information about Mexican cuisine in general throughout the class. Highly recommend!

Krystel was amazing! She definitely engaged with our big group and made the effort to get to know us all. Her cooking instructions were very clear and she did an amazing job! Overall the experience was better than I thought it would be. I’m so happy we booked Krystel for our team builder activity!
