It definitely exceeded our expectations. You don’t only learn about dishes, recipes and ingredients. It’s way more than a cooking class. It is a cultural experience and Graciela, the chef, has the best energy. Her house is lovely and she is really passionate about what...More

This is the most amazing cooking class, you feel like Graciela, a Mexican chef. All the ingredients are fresh from the Medellin market. I fully recommend this class. The class is hands-on and everyone helps to make the perfect meal. The class is with a...More

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Graciela is not only an incredible cook, but she also is incredibly knowledgeable about the historical/anthropological/sociological/geographical aspects that have turned Mexican cuisine into what it is today. She's also a fun instructor whose love for food and her city...More
