We had a great time shopping, learning from and cooking with Eduardo. He's a great guy in general, a professional chef, and a good teacher. The class was in a cute space and he took us through the whole process- how to select ingredients, prep efficiently, and cook with a number of different skills. He is passionate about Mexican food traditions and the recipes he created were delicious, used interesting ingredients, and he sent them to us afterwards! Everything I could have wanted from the experience, thanks Eduardo!
Eduardo is an absolute Professional. He definitely is a passionate, enthusiastic and humerous Chef. We learned an amazing amount about mexican cuisine and how to cook it which was the most important goal for us. Thank you again Eduardo - you made this a truly exceptional experience for us and we will continue to recommend you to everyone wanting the same experience!!
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.
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.
I loved learning the cultural history of the dishes as well as the techniques.
