I'm Fernando Vélez, I studied gastronomy at the Culinary School of the West in Cali and I specialized in Toronto-Canada as Food Hander Certificate. I have worked about 20 years as a chef. Five years ago I undertook a project to house people in my house, which I love, since I had the opportunity to meet people. Now I want to undertake gastronomic tourism and that's why in my house I put a professional kitchen to share my knowledge with other people, they are cordially invited to live this great experience. Give yourself the pleasure of being a chef in a class!

My family loved this cooking experience. Fernando explained everything in great detail and provided great Insights into the Colombian culture, Salento and the local cuisine. Bring an appetite because you definitely eat a lot of delicious food. This experience was well worth the money and we would do it again.

Fernando is friendly, passionate and energetic. This is a unique Colombian food centric experience. My friends and I learned a lot about the vast fruits and cooking differences within Colombia. The only thing I would've enjoyed more would have been if we did more cooking ourselves. Overall a very entertaining and educational experience.

Fernando is an experienced and knowledgeable chef well versed in Columbia’s cuisine. He introduced me to fruits and vegetables I was not familiar with. He also was fun to be with. His charming wife joined us for dinner another special treat.

This class was great! We booked it as sort of a last-minute way to fill the time and it ended up being one of my favorite parts of the trip! Fernando showed us all around the garden and taught us about each thing we'd be using to cook. The meal was huge and delicious. We're excited to make it back home! Overall, an awesome experience.

We had such an amazing evening cooking with Fernando in his cooking class. The kitchen is top class and his expertise was invaluable in teaching us new things about cooking in general and the culture of cooking here, not only in salento but also in Colombia. A wonderful way to spend an evening complemented by the beautiful food at the end and the wine, which we shared with Fernando and his wife. Worth every minute and would highly recommend to everyone!
