What You Can Expect

Rio de Janeiro Small-Group Cooking Class

Rio de Janeiro Small-Group Cooking Class

Make your way to the Centro neighborhood of Rio to a small cooking studio for your evening of hands-on learning. Meet your instructor and small group of no more than seven people to begin your Brazilian culinary adventure. No experience is necessary, and you're bound to learn something new about Brazilian cooking and culture whether you're a novice or an expert chef. 

Your group will choose between two traditional Brazilian dishes, a black bean Feijoada or a Bahian seafood Moqueca. Each choice is accompanied by cassava sticks for snacking and two cocktails, a Batida de Coco and and Caipirinha. 

Listen as your instructor guides you through the process of making the dish, taking notes if you like. Most of the ingredients used in these dishes can be found all over the world, so you'll be able to recreate them at home. 

After the meal is prepared, sit down with your instructor and your new friends to toast your efforts and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

This tour was amazing! Simone was awesome and the food was delicious. Anyone considering this tour should do themselves a favor and book it immediately. Not only will you get to enjoy delicious local food, you also learn a lot about the history and culture of Rio. Simone has set the bar very high. I will always include a cooking class on every vacation.

This class was great!! The food was tasty, learning how to make the dishes was fun, and the chef was great! Chef Simone - awesome cook and a ton of fun to be with. She made the class enjoyable by setting a great tone. I think we had a bonus class since we learned how to make the pork/bean dish AND the fish stew. Both were fabulous!

The class was great. We should have taken it earlier in our trip, but it was entertaining and the knowledge was helpful anyway. Loved knowing more when we went out to other restaurants after taking the class.

This cooking class was great. Chef Simone was engaging, knowledgable and all around fun. We made seafood moqueca and caipirinhas and everything was delicious. If you have the time while in Rio, it's a great activity to do!

Chef Simone does a great job, not just demonstrating a recipe, but giving everyone some hands on experience.

Take this class -- it was wonderful! The chef, Simone, is a delightful, charming woman who makes you feel instantly at home. Within 5 minutes, our group of strangers had become friends. We made two appetizers and a seafood entrée -- all delicious. Lots of fun. Do it for sure.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. It was fun, educational, and, of course, one of the best meals of the trip. I highly recommend it, and I recommend doing it at the beginning of your trip as opposed to the end. You'll have a better understanding of the culture and the region.
