This is a must have experience with Pascual! We did an authentic home-cooked Lunch and enjoyed every minute. To really understand Cuban life, learn from a great Chef and Host. Delicious food, drinks, stories and a great appreciation for Cuba and its cuisine. Once in a lifetime experience not to be missed

It was very interesting and tasty! Pascual was very communicative and positive, he was telling different facts and stories from his life and Cuban life in general. The recipes he prepared were very unusual and tasty.

I booked my 74 y/o mom a surprise trip to Cuba because I knew she’d love it. She chose this experience herself and she said it made her trip. Pascual served us like we were in a Michelin-started restaurant. The food was that good. Pascual conversation really helped my mom understand why I love Cuba. She was reluctant to travel because it is difficult for her to get around, but it was this experience more than anything else that made her glad she did.
