Come take a class with me, it will be fun. Most events are in and around southern Arizona.

If you’re looking for a class closer to the Phoenix area, my regular gig is at Sur la Table, at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Check out their class calendar and look for the classes under Minerva O. If you are interested in hosting a private event, feel free to contact me at minerva.orduno@gmail.com.
