This experience was absolutely phenomenal. Carla is kind and generous with her knowledge, and the experience is actually hands-on. You learn to make two delicious dishes and will easily be able to recreate them at home after her careful instruction. Don't miss this, and definitely arrive hungry!

Our evening with Carla was filled with magic! We learned new cooking skills (like how to cut squid and onions). We also learned about Spanish spices and culture. My 3 teens loved the experience, and we will definitely see Carla again!

Carla was great from the beginning of the whole experience until the end and beyond. She stayed in constant contact before the experience, and made us feel right at home during. She made the recipes easy to follow and served some really good sangria during the cooking time.

Cooking with Carla was an experience filled with laughter, love, and care. She was so patient and encouraging through the entire experience and I fell in love with cooking again. She has a way of making you feel like you’re listened to and like we have been friends forever. I made a new friend through this and I will continue to promote this to my friends, people who travel to Chicago and to everyone I meet. It was an incredible experience and I will be coming back!
