I don't want to write a public review. I only want to protect others from having a dangerous, frightening experience with churros exploding and splashing hot oil all over my kitchen, including ceiling, floor, counter, and cabinets. I'm 70-years old, and I slipped and fell on the oily floor. My husband and I narrowly escaped being burned. Romina reported a previous exploding churro incident while hosting this Airbnb experience, and that should have been enough. I wish I had Googled "exploding churros" beforehand. Boiling oil, combined with flour & water steam bombs, is too unpredictable and dangerous to qualify as a fun Airbnb experience.

My daughters and I took Romina's online class on Latin Pastries. Romina was an excellent teacher and it really helped to observe the process of making churros before doing it ourselves. Our churros came out perfectly!! It really helped that there were three of us working together in the kitchen though -- piping the churros is harder than it looks!!

First we heard about different pastries, which all sounded delicious. She then carefully explained and showed us all steps and tricks and how they could be served and then we made absolutely scrumptious churros with Romina guiding us during the process.

Romi is absolutely amazing! I would definitely suggest this online experience for anyone that once to have a little fun. It doesn't matter if you have no baking experience or are an expert, she makes everyone feel comfortable and included in the process. Thanks, Romi!
