Barrio Queen believes that cooking brings people together—it allows family to gather; teach and create stories; pass down family recipes; and most importantly, spend time in the moment, creating special lifelong memories. Cooking together can also be a special parenting time and helps form closer bonds. It creates the perfect opportunity for listening, sharing, and talking.

“Family is important to our culture and offering ways for families to gather and make memories is part of our mission as a company,” says Chef Julio Mata. “We are excited to help bring people together, and even more so, to do so to for a good cause.”

Their summer cooking class will be offered on August 27th at their Desert Ridge location. You can purchase tickets for $20 on their website.
