My company did this as a team building activity and had the best time! She walked through the cooking lesson at the perfect pace and made sure everyone knew what step we were on. She made the experience feel personal and informative. The team had a great time together and the tacos were delicious! I would highly recommend this!

I highly recommend this experience to anyone! Our hostess was warm, welcoming, and very inclusive and interactive throughout the experience. The instructions were easy to follow, and she gave us great alternatives/adjustments in real time.
