What you'll do

Join us to discover the secrets of the Cuban family culinary tradition. We'll welcome you in our home and will receive you with a refreshing juice made of tropical fruits. When all the group gets ready we'll start teaching you how to prepare delicious dishes, such as pork fricassee, the widely known "Ropa Vieja", the famous "Tostones" or fried plantains, and Moors and Christians -a combination of white rice, black beans and spices. In this activity you'll also learn how we Cubans season a tasty vegetable salad using a homemade dressing, made of vegetable oil, vinegar and aromatic herbs. Keep in mind that you're supposed to participate in the whole preparation process of the different dishes, so just relax and devote your time to practice. As you will probably want to repeat this at home, we'll send you the recipes via email, so you'll have the opportunity to prepare a whole Cuban meal to your family and friends. A delicious dessert will also be served as part of the dinner, just like the ones our grannies used to prepare, mainly those with a homemade syrup, such as the delicious Guava Shells, served with any kind of cheese. At the end we'll sit all together to the table and enjoy the food. We can talk during this time and we'll answer any questions you might have about Cubans day to day life.

Marian-Raquel-Gabi

We're three friends that share love for cooking. We prepare traditional culinary recipes that have come to us through several Cuban generations. We like team work and the good atmosphere among friends. We're also convinced that the best cuisine is the home cooking because it is done with will and love. I Raquel, the cook, am a retired chemist. For forty years I worked in food industry laboratories, in the field of quality control. Besides my forever passion for cooking, my profession has helped me to select the best combination of flavors to impress the most demanding of palates.
