This was really fun and Maria was a good teacher. The class takes place in a very small apartment with a small kitchen, so we all had to take turns with some of the actual cooking tasks, but there was plenty for everyone to do. They also provided wine for everyone so that was an added perk. Everything was delicious!

What a fun way to spend an afternoon in Buenos Aires! Nayla and team did a fantastic job teaching us how to make delicious empanadas and alfajores. They also accommodated multiple languages including Spanish, Portuguese, and English. Highly recommend!
