What you'll do

In Cuba we say, "Love starts in the kitchen." My family and I will open the doors of our kitchen to share with you our typical food and traditional Cuban culinary recipes. While we taste a mojito, we will teach you how to cook the most emblematic dishes of Cuban cuisine, in addition to the genuine recipes passed down by our grandmothers. It will be a fun cooking class and through our kitchen, you'll get closer to Cuban history and enjoy authentic food in an intimate and family atmosphere—different from any restaurants in the city.

Although we now have a B&B in the center of the city, we are a family from the countryside of Cuba, with a rich culinary culture transmitted from our grandmothers—and we want to share this experience. My aunts are all expert cooks, and I have a degree in the history of Cuba. Together we nurture a great love for our cuisine and traditions.

Super nice experience! I highly recommend it, it's better than going to the restaurant! You get to participate by doing some parts of the cooking process and you also learn how to make a proper mojito!
