We did a private class and was a wonderful way to stay connected with family while apart. We all enjoy making our own tacos which turned out delicious. Graciela was very friendly and made a good effort to connect with everyone participating. Definitely recommend this experience.

I could not recommend this experience more! My boyfriend and I thought this would be a unique date experience during quarantine, and all of our expectations were exceeded! The recipe was amazing, Chef Graciela was so kind and welcoming, and overall it was so much fun. Chef Graciela took everyone's flavor preferences into account as we were cooking, making our tacos absolutely perfect. She provided a lovely Mexican-style playlist on spotify for us to listen to as we cooked, and even provided a fun margarita drink recipe! So much fun, such amazing tacos, truly a recipe I will repeat again and again.

This was such a fun experience! I bought this as a birthday gift for my boyfriend and we had a blast making food, laughing with the other guests, and hearing Krystel’s stories. Even though it’s an hour and a half, the time goes by so fast. And in the end, the tacos turned out better than I expected-especially the tortillas! Amazing! Can’t wait to tell all my family and friends about it.
