Krystel was amazing! I’ve done this experience twice with clients and they’ve both been so great! She’s wonderful at making everyone feel engaged and connected and is great at stepping everyone through the recipes. I would HIGHLY recommend for fun, for clients, for team building, etc.

Graciela was a wonderful host! Our group had a great time cooking with her. The tacos were incredible! I have to admit, I thought the food was going to be too much for 2 people but it turned out so good we ate it all. I highly recommend this class as a fun virtual group activity.

My wife and I signed up for this class as a "date-night" activity and we absolutely loved it! Even if your area is not restricted in terms of what you can go out and do right now, we would both still highly recommend it! Graciela was incredibly friendly, patient and knowledgeable - an outstanding teacher! We were blown away by how easy she made everything for us to follow along with and of course how delicious everything ended up being! Looking forward to our next class with her :)

What a fantastic experience! I tried this for a team building event and everyone had a great time. Lorena was incredible. She made it so much fun and took the time to make a personal connection with everyone. I highly recommend the Aura Cocina Mexicana team and will definitely do it again. Muchas Gracias!

Amazing experience! My boyfriend and I did this on a Sunday evening instead of our regular cooking and it was fantastic. The host was a total expert, friendly and welcoming and entertaining and the tacos we made were delicious. Such a fun way to spend time and spice up a regular meal. We shared our experience with a family of 4 who was celebrating the dads birthday which also looked so fun and it was special to have another group on as well! I now will be thinking of doing this experience for a birthday present as well. Great for any occasion!
