We are Londoners and love our city and where we live, which is on a cute houseboat in a fantastic, friendly and creative East London community. Colin is a full-time artist and shows his art regularly in London and at international art fairs while Tere studied art at the renowned Goldsmiths College and then worked for over 14 years in contemporary art galleries and design studios in London.

My sister, mum and I had a lovely time learning how to make churros with Tere on her adorable boat with her very cute cat, Tippi!
Tere is very friendly and it was a great opportunity to ask her all about life living on a boat in the centre of London! She also took lots of pictures and sent us the recipe afterwards.
It was easy to get to and there are adequate facilities on site.
And of course, the churros were delicious

I’m sure you could make Churros anywhere, but you won’t enjoy making them a much as you will with Tere. The boat, the banter the benevolent attention to detail, there was a lot to love. It was a really fun and authentic experience

What a unique experience! Tere is a wonderful person and it was a delight to meet her! The churros and chocolate are quick and such fun to make let alone delicious. The setting of being in a marina on a 100 year old boat is a dream! Highly recommend this class it’s churrowesome!

I booked the class for my 7-year old granddaughter as a treat for her during the school holidays. Tere, the teacher could not have looked after us better – she is an inspiration. I did not appreciate, however, that this was more of demonstration class rather than hands on. My granddaughter did get to do some mixing and stirring – and of course enjoy the delicious churros and hot chocolate. I paid £120 for two participants which I believe was excessive given that I observed (but did also enjoy some churros and hot chocolate). It seems an excessive amount for preparing a pretty inexpensive bowl of churros and two cups of hot chocolate – even if they were delicious!


Reply from this teacher:

Dear Geoffrey,
Thanks so much for taking the time to provide this review and it was a pleasure to meet you and your little granddaughter Mae, she is a delight! However, I must point out that my class is not described as a fully blown/hands on cookery class and does mention that due to my unusual setting, i.e. a cute houseboat, I cannot provide the facilities that a cookery school would be able to, such as each student having their own oven and deep fryer etc. I do believe that I make this very clear and in fact, my location and what I provide is my unique selling point.

Unlike a commercial cookery school, I accept only small groups and I am happy to offer my class to just one person if they wish to book. Essentially my classes are private classes and my guests get 100% my attention and hospitality, unlike a commercial cookery school. This is made very clear in my online description.

Aside from this, I accepted you bringing your granddaughter but the very idea of a 7 year old getting anywhere near 300 degrees oil to fry the churros is crazy. I take hygiene and safety very seriously and for this reason I was careful to watch Mae and allow her to help only at appropriate times, such as piping the churro dough and stirring the hot chocolate. Once again, this is mentioned in my online description and I also explain this in person before my class begins. I would gain nothing from misleading my guests and for this reason I make sure all the details are correct and am happy to answer inquiries prior to booking if there are any queries.

Regarding the price, I believe this is fair for a private class in a unique setting that cannot be accessed without me. I provide a very personalised experience that is about making memories for my guests as well as myself and I pride myself on this. This is why I take photos during the class and send them to my guests afterwards as a souvenir along with the recipe. Due to my Spanish heritage I am also qualified to discuss the culture of churros in Spain and the various recipes that can be used. I look forward to welcoming future guests on board my little boat soon! :)

Lizhao Zhang Nov 2021


Tere is such an amazing and inspiring lady! I really liked her energy when I was there. Also the churros were great would love to go back again!

Nick Gilbert Nov 2021


My partner and I had a really great time with Tere. The setting is so unique onboard a wonderfully decked out canal boat, complete with beautiful art and and even more gorgeous ragdoll cat. Having previously lived in Spain and feeling nostalgic due to Covid, I can honestly say the churros were some of the best I’ve ever had. Memorable evening and would 100% recommend.

Tere is an amazing host, warm, friendly and welcoming.

With an obvious passion to pass on her knowledge; Tere’s teaching style and pace was just perfect for us. We both loved the quirkiness of her & Collins floating home - cozy and comforting just like the yummy churros we made, and there was plenty of them.

This wasn’t just a cooking lesson for us, this was a brilliant experience and memory - highly recommend!

I went with my girlfriend as a surprise trip - we had an amazing time. Tere was so welcoming and lovely to speak to - I really enjoyed finding out more about living in a marina as much as I did learning to make churros. I would highly recommend to anyone as a different, unique way to spend an evening with a partner.

Gaziz Zhotabayev Sep 2021


Tere was great - very upbeat and enthusiastic. It was really interesting seeing what life on a boat is like (I'd never considered it before). The churros were delicious as well!

Margaux Moro Sep 2021


The experience was really fantastic!
Tere picked me up at the foot of the metro to take me on her boat. We then started to cook the Churros while chatting Then it was time for the tasting.
I recommend 100%, it was a great experience and Tere and Colin are very welcoming. It was a real pleasure to talk with her for two hours.
