Fantastic tacos! Seriously, I was doubtful along the way ... thinking "but where are all the spices?" However that first bite was world changing. I may have eaten 4 without thinking about it. The class was phenomenal, well lead -- made sure everyone was successful, recommend 1000%.

Gaby was terrific and an excellent teacher. I was able to complete her class virtually with my mother and grandmother and it was executed perfectly. She did such a great job getting the audience involved, providing on the spot feedback and explaining in such accurate detail. Definitely learned a lot of techniques that I can apply to my own cooking.

This was such a great experience. The tacos were delicious and it was the perfect Friday night experience. Everything has been thought of from the prep list, to the play list to the suggested cocktail accompaniment. Instructions were really well paced and the level of banter was just right - would be good for cooks of all levels!
