Such a fun and welcoming experience! Carla gave us the tools and confidence to make a magical dish that we’ll be able to replicate in our own home for years to come. She’s so friendly and the kitchen has the most INCREDIBLE style and preparation for guests!

My sister and I bought this class to take my dad for father's day and it was awesome! The mole was delicious and we learned a lot. Definitely recommend for a fun private gathering. Carla was the best! We'll definitely be back.

Carla was a great host! She was very friendly and she made her house a home to our group. She allowed for a hands-on and educational experience, and was very accommodating. And lastly, the food was restaurant-quality delicious.

I had the most amazing evening making Mole with Carla. She is such a wonderful host and chef. She made me feel comfortable immediately and her place was so warm and inviting with all her beautiful art work on display. I can’t wait to take another class with Carla again. I highly recommend this class, you will not be disappointed and you’ll have a great meal at the end :)

Carla's mole class was magical - we had an amazing time and got to enjoy great food that we helped cook! Carla had all the ingredients ready when we arrived, and instructed us in the process of making mole. She demystified something that is often said to be very difficult and made it feel understandable and doable. Plus her recipe was delicious and she explained everything so well. Super fun, highly recommended!
