We had such a great time during the class! First we bought ingredients at the market which gives you a great idea about prices and then we cooked everything in the house. There were 6 of us and the food turned out delicious! They dropped us back to our house after which was a nice touch.

A fun and informative time exploring a local farmer's market and cooking typical Cuban dishes with Mali and Hector. Their warmth and hospitality, along with the excellent cuisine, made the experience unforgettable!

Mali & Hector were amazing hosts. The experience was awesome. We met at a local market to pick out ingredients for the meal which was a unique experience. Everything was so fresh. Followed by a short car ride to their home where we prepared the meal and had the pleasure of getting to know each other. The food we cooked turned out amazing!! And we all sat down to enjoy the meal together. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone!
