We were part of a group of about a dozen celebrating a birthday. It was really a lot of fun! Graciela asked individual questions to all participants making sure everyone felt like part of the group and were understanding her instructions. We’re definitely recommend!

Loved our time with Graciela! She is so upbeat and leveraged technology well. She told great stories about the food and took the time to engage each participant throughout the class. I’d love to do a class with her in person someday. Thank you, Graciela!

Graciela was great!! I really enjoyed cooking along with her - she engaged the audience and provided some interesting background and context on the ingredients and recipes we were using. I would definitely do this again (and hope to visit in Mexico City one day!)

Graciela is fantastic! This course was so fun and light hearted while still feeling worth the investment and time! We used this as a 30 person company team building event and we were all so thrilled and happy with the experience! Graciela is lovely, personable and entertaining! She helped us all connect and kept us engaged in the friendly cooking event. She especially did a great job pivoting or helping us find alternatives on the fly if we didn’t have something needed. Really kept the pressure low and focus on fun and community building! Thank you!!!
