Fantastic cooking class where we learned to make flour tortillas from scratch and assemble the perfect taco! A great way to spend a couple of hours, meet new people, learn about different cultures and cook a tasty dish. Would recommend it to a group of people as you can host a taco party after the class!

A wonderful time making street tacos! Krystel was incredibly personable and had plans for whatever situation each home cook might find themselves in. We definitely will be making these again!

We loved our experience making tacos, salsa, and homemade tortillas. The small class size and pace were really helpful to make sure no one fell behind and everyone’s meal came out delicious. Making tortillas from scratch was a highlight! This was a great way to spend a Saturday night, and a fun shared experience with family members we haven’t been able to see in-person! Great food and great memories!

We had a blast cooking with Lorraine. We learned a lot and the food was great. It was the first time in a long time that made me forget we are in the middle of a pandemic. So I’m grateful to have had the hour and a half to not think about anything except good people and good food. Thank you, Lorraine!

Such a fun experience! I thought I knew how to make tacos, but they pale in comparison to the ones we made today. Absolutely delicious. And making tortillas from scratch was a fun new experience! Thanks Graciela, for your hospitality and giving us a really special experience.
