Awesome experience! Would absolutely recommend! We did it for a team event. Everyone enjoyed it. Lots of spouses and roommates commented on how great the tacos were!

This was such a fun, engaging event for my team at work! Chef Lorena was an incredible host, made everyone feel personally included, and added so many special touches. On top of that, the recipes we learned were incredible! I love to cook and wasn't sure if this would be that valuable but WOW - exceeded my expectations! I cannot wait to make the salsa and tortillas again. Muchas gracias!!!

I’ve never taken a virtual cooking class before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Chef Gaby was AMAZING, engaging, sweet, funny, and a fantastic teacher! My portobello, fake bacon tacos (vegetarian here) turned out delicious. My meat-eating coworkers raved about their beef tacos as well. If you’re on the fence about taking this class, absolutely go for it. You will not be disappointed. You’ll learn some new skills and probably never want to buy tortillas from Kroger ever again.

Ok I really didn’t know what to expect when booking this online experience for a father day gift but wow did it exceed my expectations and more! First off Gabby is so lovely and personable and I love how she went the extra mile to add some extra touches. Such as writing a happy Father’s Day sign and blowing out a little candle on a cup cake for my dad after. It was very thoughtful and sweet. Secondly, the taco. Soooo good and fairly easy to make and that’s coming from someone who does not cook often. All around great experience. If your debating about trying it just do it. It’s something fun and different to do. You also get to learn some little culture facts about Mexico which was nice. Thanks Gabby for being an amazing host!

My sister and I booked this experience to do with my dad on Father's Day since we can't all be together. We all tuned in from separate places but felt like we were all in the same kitchen. Chef Gaby was exceptional! She was fun, friendly, energetic, and went above and beyond. She even had a cup cake with a candle to celebrate my dad for Father's Day! 10/10 incredible class!
