Making tamales has always been on my checklist of “what to cook”...it was simple to follow and Arturo was such an excellent host! I highly recommend this experience and I can’t wait to make my salsa!

Excellent experience. Chef Arturo is knowledgeable and approachable. Made it fun and educational . Took extra time to customize the recipe for our friend in Japan who had slightly different ingredients. Top notch.

Great instructions. We were in a group and not everyone had the same ingredients, he definitely made it work. Also as we all knew each other he worked well with that. It was a fun evening.

From Nate who took the class (as a gift): I’ve always wanted to learn how to make tamales. Arturo made it a memorable experience with very clear instructions and patience. He’s also got great tips and stories to tell as you make your tamales. They turned out amazing! We will definitely take class from Arturo again. It was the perfect virtual class!
