*I* made mole? Wow!

I LOVED this box and this experience. Chef Graciela was amazing and I very much enjoyed following along with her as she taught us how to make mole, tortillas, and hot chocolate. I'm looking forward to making the craft next.

Mexico City

I really enjoyed the painting and cooking classes. However, the chicken mole took way too long and I did not care for it. 3 hours for a dish is just too long and I will not be making it again.

Magnificent mole!

What fun to make the incredible mole and tortilla’s! Not ready yet to spin off my own tortilla company but will never buy them from the store again without the great memory of making my own! You hit another home run ladies!
