Wow! I have tried a few in-person AirBnb Experiences before and have been pleasantly surprised. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Zoom-type format, but it was truly spectacular. First of all, just having access to a pro Mexico City chef who was not only supremely skilled but also very personable and generous in terms of sharing stories and information was fantastic. This format allowed people from all across the world to come together to learn to make a recipe. We cooked street tacos, from tortilla to filling to salsa, and they turned out AMAZING. Seriously a transcendent food experience during these dark pandemic times. Gracias, Graciela!

What fun! This was such a fun "date night in". Graciela walked us step by step on how to make tacos! She was so much fun and very helpful and clear about her instructions. I was blown away at how well these turned out and am so excited to use this new skill to show off a little at get togethers in the future! This is 100% worth the time and money! -J

Our family had so much fun during our private taco making class with Krystel today! We were joining from 3 different locations since we couldn’t be together for Thanksgiving, and this was the perfect activity to do together. The instructions for setup were really easy, and she guided us through each part of the cooking process with ease. She was really personable and fun, stopping to take pictures of our pets on our various screens and allowing us to talk to each other while still keeping us on schedule. And the tacos were delicious! I couldn’t believe we could make flour tortillas by hand so easily. I would absolutely take another class!
