Gustavo was fantastic -- made my group of co-workers and me feel like family, the food was absolutely fabulous, and I picked up some excellent home-cooking tips. I likely won't ever eat a churro again because last night's was absolute perfection. I definitely recommend him. You are sure to have a memorable evening.

Chef, Our team had a wonderful time and some were not expecting to enjoy it. Thank you for your welcoming and inclusive dinner. You did a great job accommodating our vegan and gluten-free attendee too. It was the best "fun" team event we've had. Thanks.

Chef Gustavo lead our work team on a culinary adventure, showing us the most amazing versions of some of Latin America's most iconic dishes. He shared his own journey along the way, and gave us some incredible tips and tricks. We learned his secret ingredient to many dishes: "corazon" and Chef generously taught us how to use it in all of his dishes. He was warm, open, playful, and a real talent in the kitchen. Did I mention his food was to die for? We highly recommend any of Chef Gustavo's experiences, and I strongly suspect we're going to be back for more in the future!
