We chopped and cooked with Karen in her beautiful home. We were served these beautiful dishes and ate with the family. I fell in love with their tiny doggie.

This was a magical night for us. We expected the event to be cancelled because only we two had booked the experience for that night night. Nevertheless, Karen invited us into her beautiful home and made us feel like family. We had a wonderful time preparing our Mexican meal as Karen shared many stories of herself, her family and Mexican culture. Karen's gracious husband and delightful daughter joined us for dinner. The dinner conversation was fun as well as stimulating. Overall it was an enchanting experience, spending time with a professional couple. Gracias Karen!

The setting is a beautiful house in a stately neighborhood. The menu consisted of food from all over Mexico that most Americans would not think of as “Mexican”. The large well-appointed kitchen gave us much room to cook and enjoy what we created. And Chef Karen was knowledgeable, friendly, and a great host! We will return with friends!!!

This was one of the best experiences of my life. It went above my expectations, and I feel beyond grateful to have been able to experience it. In my opinion, you get much more than what you pay for. You are welcomed into the (stunning) home of a Mexican family, get to learn about authentic cuisines (we made corn fungus risotto topped with crickets!), and then dine with the family. It was the highlight of our trip, and we would love to come back again!

Karen is a phenomenal host and very knowledgeable! Literally still dreaming about this dinner experience. I am not a skilled cook by any means, and had the best time participating and learning during this cooking class. I truly appreciate Karen opening up her home to teach us cooking skills while also enjoying such an amazing meal!!
