Graciela kindly welcomed us into her kitchen, set a comfortable atmosphere for everyone participating, and gave an interesting introduction to the historical significance of the food we were going to prepare. The food was incredible - in no small part thanks to great oversight by Graciela and her team - and you really get to be a part of the whole process! I came away confident that I could make some of these recipes at home now. Highly recommended!
