"Alejandra has a knack for whipping up a great cooking
class with all the acoutrements! We took her cooking class recently with
10 others at City Cookhouse in Spanish Harlem and had an absolutely
great time! We made a bunch of dishes of varying degrees of difficulty
but Alejandra made every dish seem simple to make. The post cooking
feast was a great reward for a few hrs of great prep work and cooking. I
feel like we all left with a handful of amazing recipes and the
confidence and experience to show off our newly minted skills. Stay
tuned for the dinner party."
"Alejandra's cooking class was AMAZING! She was the
chef for a recent cooking class I took and her recipes were awesome. It
was a large group and she was awesome with working with everyone. I
would definitely recommend her for any personal chef needs and to attend
her cooking classes."
"Alejandra is a great chef and teacher, who is
obviously very passionate about her craft. Be sure to catch one of her
group cooking classes. She will set everything up for you, including the
cooking venue, recipes, food, aprons, her bottomless specialty
cocktails while we're all cooking, etc. etc. Classes are fit for all
levels of cooks, and a group dinner follows immediately afterwards to
eat all of the dishes cooked. I fully support her efforts to have the
public be more aware of wholesome nutrition, meal preparation and
maintaining a healthy relationship with food overall. I'm looking
forward to take more classes with her!"
"Alejandra's classes are amazing! Great themes and
she's always super prepared to teach you something new and exciting. I
can't wait to take another class with her."
"I really enjoyed the culinary tour Alejandra took us
on. She came up with recipes for 9 dishes that were inspired by places
in NYC. The dishes were very delicious and the cooking class was very
well organized. I was impressed that she was able to keep an eye on all
the dishes without burning them (sometimes I struggle cooking 2 dishes
at the same time at home). The recipes she put together were not the
easiest yet we've managed not to mess them up. The ingridients were
already set aside and so were the cooking utensils, which made it much
easier. I've picked up some good recipes that i'll certainly use at
home, such as meatballs, salmon salad with bagel chips and corn on the
"Alejandra's classes are as fun and educational as you
make them out to be - she encourages class attendees to be as involved
(or uninvolved) as they wish, she's very hands-on in showing you every
step of the process and sends you home with useful recipes and tips. We
enjoyed the most delicious sangria throughout the class and had a
"Add this to your to do list, either with a group or
special someone. You will enjoy the entire experience from drinks,
cooking and finally enjoying the delicious dishes you helped create."

"I attended the couples cooking class - NYC Valentine's day and I had
such a great time! Alejandra's instructions were very easy to follow (I
had no problem in following, even though I have never ever taken any
kind of cooking class before) and it was so fun to cook and enjoy what
we cooked all together! Will definitely try to look for other classes

"I recently took a class with Alejandra and had a fantastic time. The
food we prepared was delicious and the teaching was hands on. I enjoy
cooking so it was fun to learn different ways of doing things. The good
thing was, her ways were easier! At the end of the class we all sat
down to enjoy the meal we all helped in preparing. She sent us home
with all the recipes we prepared that day and a little 'thank you'
goodie bag. Whether you are a seasoned chef or can't boil water to save
your life, you WILL learn something from Alejandra!"

"A friend and I attended Alejandra's "Weeknight Dinner" class over the
weekend, and had a really nice time! Alejandra's recipes were wonderful
and she has a very natural, easy going style of teaching that made the
whole experience very enjoyable. I left with a lot of great ideas and a
few new useful skills and techniques. I'm excited to try all the
recipes--especially the over-the-top delicious and easy molten lava

"The classes are intimate and fun. I had a blast and I assure you will
too! Its a great class to go alone, with friends or with a special
someone (hint hint). She provides the recipes, materials, food and even
drinks so all you have to do is bring yourself and an empty belly!"

The girls had a Fabulous time!! The food was unbelievable and they had a
blast cooking. Your hard work did not go unnoticed."

"Thank you for everything...I loved all your recipes and it was very clear from the start that I was dealing with a real pro. I hope we can continue to find ways to work together."
