This was my first AirBnB experience, and it was so much fun! Great communication ahead of time (about ingredients/prep needed), and a well-paced class. Host made sure everyone is comfortable, and shared interesting facts about Mexico. The food came out delicious!

Excellent experience for groups. Participated in this cooking class for a team event and it was so fun. Pace was perfect, ingredients were easy to find, and end result was so yummy. Thank you for teaching me something new!

Great experience! We took the course as a team bonding activity for work and everyone enjoyed themselves! Interactive, didn't leave anyone in the class behind. Tacos were delicious. Highly recommend!

This is experience was absolutely amazing! We had a group experience for my high school Spanish Club and Lorena did such a great job of guiding through everything step by step and making us feel warm and welcomed into her home! We even got a glimpse of Mexico City while enjoying our delicious creations. It was a brilliant opportunity for my students to really get a glimpse into Mexican culture first hand and also to see how simple it is to make such a delicious meal! I, myself, had no idea how simple it is to make a fresh salsa and tortillas.. a far better option to the over-priced processed alternatives here in the US. We all had a blast and will certainly do this again in the future!! I highly recommend this experience for adults, teens and even whole families! Muchísimas gracias Lorena por compartir tu pasión y espíritu con nosotros!
