Cooking venue was great as well as the overview of local history related to the gourmet societies. Our guide and cook were great...kept things lively and fun. Group size was perfect. Hands on experience with the dishes kept us engaged. I'll be using these recipes entertaining friends at home.

This was just the right amount of time that we had to dedicate to a cooking class. I was so fun to see how some of the most traditional dishes were prepared and help with that preparation. The chef was very kind and knowledgable and Amaya was the perfect host (and translator). Definitely a "must" experience!
