In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Carolina will teach you how to prepare a variety of dishes utilizing ingredients harvested from California, including olives, cheeses, avocado, chicken and more.

I took Chef Carolina’s Italian class with my work team last fall, and knew I wanted to do the Mexican class with friends for my birthday. It did not disappoint! Chef and her family make the experience so fun, everyone wanting to come back another time soon. Her backyard is also beautiful, such a fun place to cook. Thank you, Chef! See you again soon. :)
