What You Can Expect
After pickup from your Guatemala City hotel, head to your Guatemalan cooking class in Antigua. After a brief kitchen safety overview, your expert chef will start by teaching you about the Spanish and Mayan cultural influences on Guatemalan flavors. Learn about the staple ingredients and foods used by natives, including corn, peppers and beans. For your own meal, you’ll get to prepare one main dish, such as hilachas, two side dishes and one dessert, including camote en dulce or mole de plátanos.
As you create your meal, the chef will be there to offer helpful guidance. Once you’re done, it’s time to enjoy your home-cooked lunch! After you savor your traditional Guatemalan meal and dessert, you’ll be transported back to your Guatemala City hotel.
A delicious experience! Provided us with a great translator although we speak a fair amount of traveller's Spanish. Very professional. We could not have asked for more.
Great time for everyone, with plenty of wine, beer and coffee to go around. A special way to enjoy an afternoon in historic Atigua.
