Great class with delicious food, and on top of that, you learn a lot about the history of each dish and how to prepare it. It's clear chef Gustavo loves teaching people about South American food and it shows.

Highly recommend this class! Chef Gustavo was a great teacher and we made some delicious food. Outside of learning the recipes, you learn a lot of general cooking tips too. We’ll definitely be taking more classes with Chef Gustavo!
