Full description
Experience a fun and informative tour of local cuisine. Learn where organic Costa Rican ingredients come from, how dishes are prepared, and how to recreate them at home. Begin your tour by visiting the local farmer's market in Quepos, where you have the opportunity to browse the stands and pick out ingredients for your lunch. Your guide will assist you and be there to help you design the menu. Head to the private ranch in Londres and be greeted by friendly staff who will guide you to the organic garden. Pick out some finishing flavors, colors, and textures for your meal. Start cooking with professional local chefs in the kitchen. Experience the process of making corn tortillas by hand, exotic ceviches with plantain or banana, rice cooked the old-fashioned way, chicken in a hearty tomato sauce, and picadillos (minced meats and veggies and spices combined). Sit down for your delicious meal, and delight your palate with local Costa Rican flavors. Let your imagination soar about how to recreate these dishes at home with your own seasonal ingredients.

    This was a great excursion and our guide Allen (Alan?) was great. Friendly and knowledgeable. We got to go to a small farm, see animals, pick veggies, and learn to cook Costa Rican dishes. I am vegan and everything we made I could eat except for the entree, which was chicken. They were very accommodating and showed me how to make something different for my entree, called picadillo. It was delicious. Highly recommend.

    Pick-up puntualissimo in hotel, la guida gentilissima ci ha mostrato i dintorni e portato in punti panoramici magnifici. La preparazione del pranzo attiva e coinvolgente. Il cibo, cucinato da noi era molto gustoso. Un’esperienza che consiglio vivamente
