Food was delicious. The chef took his time to explain the processes and why we were doing them.

Could not more highly recommend this class! Chef Juan and Chef David were amazing, educational, entertaining/funny, and we had a blast. We were a group of 19 people, but despite our size they made it engaging and hilarious. Learned a handful of new cooking tips to bring home -and btw, the cooking tips extend beyond just guacamole and salsa; we learned some solid chopping skills and knife handling tips which will serve for years to come. 10/10 would recommend.
