I would do this class again in a heartbeat. Renate was wonderful and so welcoming. She explained all and made it seem so easy. Not only did we learn to make some classic Spanish dishes but then you get to enjoy eating them. They were delicious. There’s a great little cookbook I’d recommend also. Plus you get to visit the fabulous market and shop for your supplies. There are also several families with children in the class. Great experience for them too! Thank you Renate for a terrific experience!
