Loved the cooking course and my husband was inspired by my enthusiasm so we went and took another one. Loved shopping in the market, finding out about places to get meat etc. We travelled here over two years ago.

I took a cooking class from Sazon! It was fantastic! I loved that it was demonstration and hands on. We prepared a meal and then was able to eat it as our lunch! It was a great, authentic experience. Thank you!
