Alan tiene un proyecto bello. Me encanta la ubicación de su taller porque reconoce la importancia de estar cerca de la gente Poblana. El mole nos salio requisimo. Fue una experiencia plena.

I had a wonderful time with Alan and Antonio! Lucky for me, I was the only student that morning so had a very personalized lesson with them on how to make mole poblano. Alan and Antonio were so warm, welcoming and enthusiastic about sharing a piece of their culture with me, and I had a magical time learning from their expertise. AND the mole was soooo delicious! Would recommend this experience again and again!
