My friend Raquel, who I've told you about before is hosting another fun cooking class that's coming up in October. The theme intrigued me, as it's Latin and I'm a huge fan of this sizzlin' cuisine. Here are the deets, and if you're interested, make sure you RSVP on Raquel's Eventbrite page. The classes are small in size, so you get tons of personal attention and you'll also gain great knowledge about food preparation and fresh recipe ideas.
