Truly awesome class. The steak was amazing, and Chef Paco was a great instructor. Had a fun time with a group of 9 people, learned a lot of new skills! I’m excited to try this on my own!

Chef Paco was a great host and the meal was delicious. His home was a great backdrop for the class. We had 4 people but he can fit up to 15 so we’re already thinking about who to bring with for next time! And don’t forget… BYOB! FYI - Street Parking is zoned but he has a driveway or there is paid parking meters at the end of the block that are free after 6pm. Also sounds like he may have parking permit stickers.

Chef Paco exceeded my fiancé’s and my expectations for a private cooking class! We learned so much while indulging in amazing food! The flavors of the food were so thought out and delicious. He was very welcoming and professional. It was for sure a 5 star experience. Would recommend and want to go back to do another class with him!
