Chef Gustavo was great. He took time to explain the history of the dish and provided lots of tips on how to improve my cooking. Because of him, I will be looking to do more of these classes.

Chef Gustavo, was fantastic! So nice and easy to work with, he also taught us a few fantastic tips! (I wasn’t expecting to learn much as I’m an avid cooker, but I was wrong!). The meal was delicious I’m looking forward to making it at home! Best, Jarrett

We had so much fun and learned new things in Chef Gustavo’s Paella Cooking Class. The end result was delicious! Looking forward to taking another class with this great Chef. Thank you for the experience!
