This class was so fun! It moved at a great pace, allowing everyone to keep up, and Krystel was so warm and friendly and took the time to answer everyone’s questions. Delicious food too!!

This class was so fun! I walked away with new cooking skills and the small class made it so everybody could ask plenty of questions, chat, and make sure everything was going well! The tacos were great!

I expected this to be fun, because some friends had done it before and reccomended it. It was even better than I expected. Even though we were all in different cities it felt like we were all together. Thank you Gaby!
