Such a lovely home and Carla was a great instructor! She let us do all the tasks and it made for a fun evening of socializing, learning, drinking, and genuinely very delicious mole. It’s something that has always seemed very intimidating to make on my own, but she showed a lot of really useful techniques that make it easy.

The class was wonderful. My wife and I had a tremendous time learning to cook with Carla. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about Mexico. You will not regret the experience.

As far as the class goes, Carla will have you leaving there feeling like an expert in preparing mole. She made it so simple and easy to follow as well as fun to make. She also tells you exactly where you can get all the ingredients. Now the mole itself was by far the best mole I have ever had! I was never a fan of mole at first but because of its popularity I decided to give it one more try and I am so glad I did. The mole was fantastic and now it’s amazing that now I know how to make it myself

The class was unique and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Carla was very attentive, detail oriented, and talkative. She made us feel comfortable with her knowledge and experience. It was a very fun activity and we would love to do it again!

Cooking mole with Claudia this morning was such a rewarding and meaningful experience. While I am 100% Mexicana, I have always been wary of making mole from scratch because it can be a very lengthy process; however, Claudia facilitated a much easier method that transformed chiles, tomatoes, spices and nuts in a mole as delicious and authentic as my childhood's but much simpler to make. Afterwards, we sat at the table to enjoy pollo, arroz verde, tortillas and frijoles that Claudia had ready to accompany our mole. I truly felt among friends and highly recommend this class to you :)
