What you'll do

From our family restaurant located in the heart of the historic center of Cartagena, Colombia we will connect to learn traditional Colombian recipes and the stories behind the dishes and us too.

Get ready because you will prepare the delicious and crunchy empanadas made with corn flour like a native Colombian,
without forgetting the sour cream sauce, which is indispensable for eating empanadas here in Colombia. we will also prepare the filling for our empanadas from scratch (if you are a vegetarian there is room for you too!)

Besides the empanadas we will also prepare the delicious and multifaceted patacones, they are soft inside but crunchy outside, and you can't miss their respective typical sauce, where butter and garlic predominate to give them their characteristic flavor! which you will learn to prepare too!

We will also prepare the Arepas, soft and full of cheese, so much so that it melts and comes out by its edges!

This class is a good way to connect with your friends, or a great date for your partner too, or if you prefer a fun activity to do with your family! My intention is that this class will end up being an unforgettable lunch/dinner.

If you are interested in a private class for you and your friends or for a business event, do not doubt to ask, we will be available!

Note: the ingredients work for at least 3 people.

Wonderful time making delicious Colombian food! Was able to cook remotely with friends, laugh, and learn to make exotic food - what more could we ask for! Thank you Jose for a wonderful evening!!

This was a lot of fun! I had a great time learning about how to make the food as well as Colombian culture. I highly recommend this experience!

We had so much fun cooking with Jose! We had to use a few substitutions in our recipe, and he helped us troubleshoot when that led to some complications with our dough. He continually checked in with everyone in the group to see how our meals were coming along, and he provided helpful feedback throughout the experience. 5 stars :)

Wonderful cooking experience with an expert Colombian chef. Jose was very thoughtful and patient while we cooked and he was adept at modifying a recipe if we had the wrong ingredients. He personalized the experience for each guest and I felt like the class was just for me. He gave us background and history of ingredients and recipes which made me feel like got to know Colombia a bit. The instructions we received before the class on what to prepare ahead were very useful. Well done, Jose, and muchas gracias!!

Fun class and the food was delicious but it was a bit more labor intensive than I expected. The class was about 3 hours, but we learned to make 3 different things. Host was patient and friendly.

This was such a great experience! It was my first online experience and I enjoyed it so much. my husband and I are currently living long distance and not being able to see each other with COVID restrictions, this was a great date idea that made us feel closer. Jose was patient, accommodating, and not only did he walk us through how to make the arepas and empanadas but he asked to check our progress and gave us constant feedback. All in all, great experience! Highly recommend!
