What you'll do

Get ready to indulge your sweet tooth.

During this online cooking class, you’ll learn how to make three Mexican desserts with my dad, a professional instructor and culinary artist who will share his tips and recipes with you.

We’ll be preparing a popular lime dessert called carlota, a very special hot chocolate soup, and buñelos, the most delicious dessert from my grandmother's hometown. Throughout the experience, the chef will guide you through each delicious dessert, virtually cooking alongside you and helping you every step of the way.

Amazing experience! Really great storytelling, and I learnt so much about Mexican food culture. The sweet dishes you make are delicious, and Chef Raja gives you all the tips to make sure you are successful on and off the course. Already looking forward to making the treats again, and hopefully another course with Chef Raja!

Can’t recommend this experience enough! This was our first virtual experience through Airbnb, and we weren’t sure what to expect. It ended up being a private class with Chef Raja, my husband, and I, and it was a blast. Chef Raja got to know us and personalized our class from there, knowing we were experienced bakers who had been to Mexico City before. Chef Raja is a brilliant storyteller and makes the recipes feel approachable. Most ingredients were simple, and being in the US, we did our best to get the Mexican specialty items. Chef Raja knew what to do when we had to substitute with other ingredients a few times, and everything came about looking beautiful and tasting indulgent and perfect. He took lots of time to check in and give feedback at every step — more attentive than some in-person cooking classes we’ve taken before! He also gave lots of ideas for ways to riff on each recipe based on our tastes. The two hours flew by, and we can’t wait to make these recipes again, and hopefully take another class from Chef Raja when we can all be together in CDMX!

This cooking course was absolutely the best experience we could have asked for. Chef Raja was amazing with all of his stories that he had to share. He was full of knowledge and very patient while we cooked. He knew exactly how to help us along the way. He was full of excitement and energy all throughout the class. I would highly recommend Chef Raja's classes. He even personalized our class with a happy birthday board and song at the end of the class. Definitely worth the cost as well.

Chef Raja was completely engaging with all of his virtual guests ranging in age from 15 to 50 and we learned so much from him! He gave just enough direction and cultural information to keep us moving through the recipes and was quick to help us adjust if something needed it. Everything turned out delicious and we had fun cooking along with him. 5+++++stars!
