We came into the adventure as a run of the mill software sales team looking for a fun team event and we left as a group of highly trained (and slightly buzzed) fiesta chefs. The margs were to die for, the guacamole was the the best I've ever had, and the homemade tortillas created a very delicious and special quesadilla. Krystel was the perfect host and made each step easy to follow and shared some great chef tips that I'll take with me to look like a whiz in the kitchen. Super fun all around - thank you!

We did a cooking class for a bachelorette party and it was truly so much fun! Our host brought a bride and groom, took the time to know our names and interests and it truly felt personal. We had such a blast making everything and it was one of the highlights of our party. Thank you so much for making this such a memorable and exciting experience! She even took photos for us and sent them after class. Would definitely do another class here!
