This was a wonderful experience, not only is Claudia a graceious hostess, but she and her assistants give you a culinary history of Mexico. Everyone has an opportunity to participate and the value is certainly there. There were two families the day we went and the kids enjoyed it as much as the adults. And you get to enjoy the wonderful meal you all helped to prepare. You can also purchase some of the spice you use and Caludia gives you a CD with the recepies. This is a MUST on your things to do!!!
