Really fun and delicious! I got this as a gift for my mom so we could do something together and we both loved it so much. The prep instructions were thorough, the process was well explained, she timed everything perfectly and at the end, the tacos were absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to eat them again and it’s pretty cool to eat tacos this good and know that I made everything from scratch. Highly recommend!

A most enjoyable experience for yourself or as a gift to someone you cherish. Tip: Let the host know beforehand if it's a gift and she will take care to make the person feel special. No previous cooking experience needed. Expect 8 little tacos at the end, so make sure you have hungry friends around. It truly felt like an experience, lovely host, concept and implementation.

We loved how Graciela checked in with folks throughout the experience and gave feedback and tips. She did a great job of managing the group and interacting with everyone. We loved that the experience was bilingual, too. And most importantly, everything was delicious!
