Chef Gustavo was INCREDIBLE. I highly recommend taking a class with him. He was so personable, friendly and truly made you feel like family! I learned so much about Peruvian cuisine and I’m so glad that I got a chance to take his class!

This was the first time we attended an experience like this. It was amazing. I would recommend every person but especially couples to take this class. Such a nice person and what a chef, sharing his experience. We just loved it. Thank you Chef Gustavo. We will be back soon🙏
