Excellent class. Had the opportunity to prepare many delicious Oaxacan dishes with an expert description of the ingredients being used and hands on preparation of the dishes. We then enjoyed a leisurely meal graciously served by Oscar and his staff.

I had such a great time cooking and learning from Oscar. He was kind enough to do a session with just me, and was super knowledgeable. I had a chance to drink wine and mezcal whilst enjoying the meal I helped prepare.

I went to the cooking class with my friends. We really liked it we went to the market together to buy the ingredients. The food was delicious and Oscar was really nice. It took around 5 hours.

Chef Oscar really knows his stuff. He was very knowledgeable about the cuisine and the various types of mole (There are way more than just 3). We planned our menu with the other students (there were no more than 6 in a class). After eating...More
