Our class exceeded all our expectations about learning to cook Mexican foods, understanding Oaxacan foods, and becoming acquainted with local food wizards!

Was a great authentic experience. Not a fancy cooking class, but a true Mexican one. The market shopping was really nice, we had a nice time cooking and the food was really good! Agustin is a great funny dude, and a very interesting guy. If...More
