We had such a lovely time with Alex and Ale! From the ease of communication before our home cooking lesson to the beautiful and delicious food we made. Such a unique and memorable experience - I highly recommend working with Alex and Ale!

Alex was a fantastic host, teacher and conversationalist. We mentioned we had experience with Mexican cooking already so he was very happy to teach us special dishes including pozole, chicharron de queso and huitlacoche quesadillas, which we had never cooked ourselves before.
