Chef Paco put together a great class for us! Very hands on and interactive. Super informative and even sent us home with dough to get started on our own! Looking forward to booking another class with him soon!

Great evening! Chef Paco is knowledgeable, friendly and a great teacher. He was patient yet directive and worked individually, as needed, with each participant. Made us feel we could easily recreate these recipes at home! Highly recommend!!
