The day was great, we had a small group of 5 of us. The ingredients were picked out at a local market. Then we went back and started cooking. The Chef, Eduardo, was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. It was a very practical class, and everyone got involved. Would definitely recommend.

As a Mexican I learned an awful lot about my country's cuisine, it blew my mind. Chef Lalo is an amazing teacher, and the menu he created for the season is delicious and easy to replicate at home! It included two kinds of veggie tacos with two salsas (including a perfect guacamole), DELICIOUS Frijoles Charros with habanero and mint, as well as hoja santa tostadas with mole and chicken. All ingredients were selected from the local market, only a few steps away from where the class takes place. The location is cozy and beautiful, I totally recommend this class!
Yum! We worked with no less than a half dozen types of chile, and it was delicious! We had a fantastic day with Eduardo and thoroughly enjoyed purchasing the ingredients for the dishes at the market, as well as learning how to prepare them. Leaning how to roast the various chiles over a flame was a highlight. The kitchen that the chef typically uses wasn't available so we traveled to a private home for our class and Eduardo did an exceptional job of instructing us and putting together a beautiful meal in a kitchen that was new to him. There were only two of us and the experience of a private class was great. Eduardo is very experienced, funny, and it was a pleasure to take a class with him! I highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to learn about Mexican ingredient and cuisine.
I loved learning the cultural history of the dishes as well as the techniques.
