What a unique and fun experience! And we really learned how to make Chivito. We can't wait to have a Chivito party for our friends in the US..and to make the meringue dessert! Flopi is a great teacher and story teller. Manu, a little more serious, Filled us in on many cultural and social points of Uruguay. Being guests in their home was an added bonus.

An absolutely enjoyable evening. It felt like an evening over at a friends place from the moment Flopi came to meet me at the gate. Food was delicious, learned about the Uruguay culture and Flopi and Manu were fantastic hosts.

An excellent introduction to the culinary culture of Uruguay. The hosts, Flopi and Manu, were delightful, extremely hospitable and friendly. Another couple from Brazil attended the experience and all together we discussed everything from cultural events to politics, learning so much about South America. We feel them already as friends.... Keep up my friends your desire to share your culture with visitors to your country. You are the best ambassador of your country guys

Everyone who comes to Montevideo should go to Flopi's house to make and eat a chivito! The whole evening was informative and enjoyable, the hosts were charming and the food was excellent.

This cooking experience was wonderful! I had done a similar experience the week before in Buenos Aires, so thought I would give another a try. Flopi and her husband we're very welcoming, informative, and made me feel like it was a dinner party among friends for the evening, while I still got to learn and participate in some typical Uruguayan cuisine. I was a solo traveler, so the interaction for the evening was great. I recommend the experience for anyone looking for a nice night of cooking, good food, and great company.

What a special evening. My spouse and myself felt like we were invited into a family and given the full Uruguayan cultural experience over a dinner of local fare. Flopi and her husband shared stories and even yerba mate!
