It was the best experience you could have in Rio. Chef Simone was awesome. I felt so comfortable learning to cook and the food was delicious. She also I also learned a lot about the culture of the country during this class. I recommend this experience for everyone. I want to say congrats to our Chef! Hope you wedding day was heavenly.

We can and #39;t recommend this cooking class highly enough! It and #39;s a definite booking for Rio. We learnt so much about Brazil and made some amazing food and caipirinhas. They were also really patient with us as we had to change our booking time. This is a must do class!

Great cooking class! Chef Simone is wonderful. She weaves in lots of Brazilian history and culture into the cooking class. It's also hands-on which I enjoyed quite a bit! Highly recommend it!

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.

A combination of observation and participation in a small group setting. Got to eat the food which was yummy and drinks also provided. Very interesting to learn about Brazillian cooking.

It was good fun, however, if you want full hands on experience it's not for you. It was mostly a demonstration. Great host with good delivery style, fun stories and lots of information about Brasilian cuisine. The food cooked was excellent! Thank you!
