Great experience

It was a bit confusing because I was contacted shortly before the start of the event that the confirmed date would not be carried out. I was then offered alternative dates. The place is not easy to find. Once there, it was a very great experience and you could learn a lot about the culinary side of Brazil with caipi and many dishes. It was a fun group and there was more than enough food and drink.

Think out of the box!

If you go here and think that you are copying stupid recipes based on templates, you are wrong! Simone is a great cook who not only cooks great, but can also tell an awful lot about the food, its origin and use. In addition there is always some Brazilian culture. We would have a lot of fun in our motley group in the small (but very fine) kitchen. And since this is a cooking course: the food was just delicious and can be cooked anywhere. But make notes or take photos of the quantities and ingredients, because you won't be given the recipes... The caipis are great - not only at cook in Rio, but also in Germany, according to the guests who cook at home!

Great cooking class to learn more about the history and culture of Rio

Cook Simone gave us a very warm welcome and we felt at home throughout the course and had a lot of fun. She not only taught us how to cook the traditional Saturday dish in Rio, the Fejoada, but also told us a lot about the country and its people. We went to the supermarket to buy the ingredients together and learned a lot about Brazilian cuisine. I would recommend doing the course right at the beginning of the Rio trip, as Simone gave us incredibly good tips on what to see and where to eat. All in all very successful and I would do it again and again.
