Gaby taught an excellent class. The tacos were incredible and I know I can make them again in the future with what I learned in the class. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a fun 90 minutes and some excellent food.

Graciela es una excelente host. En general la experiencia fue muy amena y se cumplieron los tiempos programados. El plato resultó delicioso y fue muy fácil de hacer. Recomiendo totalmente la experiencia. Tal vez sería interesante tomarla en la tarde/noche para poder acompañar la experiencia con las Margaritas.

Lorena was a great teacher and did an excellent job keeping everyone engaged. I cook regularly and have taken several cooking classes, but still feel that Lorena taught me a lot. It really helped that she was super clear and detailed with her instructions, which helped get over the hurdle of it being an online class.

I loved this experience!! Lorena was so clear in her explanations and demos of each step of the process that she was easy to follow along with. Her engaging and personalized style pushed the experience over the top. I highly recommend this experience with Aura Cocina Mexicana. My family and I are already planning the next one! Thank you!

Graciela went above and beyond during this fun activity. It was for my birthday and other members of my family dialed in but some were not fluent in English. She made it special and was really mindful to show steps on screen etc to make sure everyone could follow! She even took some time after the class to make sure everyone could make at least one taco! Thank you so much Graciela for your energy and good tips, but also for making sure everyone in the call could have fun and for speaking a bit of french!
