After hotel pickup in Santiago, start your culinary adventure at two of the city’s most vibrant markets – La Vega Central and Mercado Central – for an abundance of local produce and fresh fish. Browse the aisles for spices and seasonal foods as you choose ingredients with your knowledgeable guide.

Next, head to a modern, private home located in the fashionable neighborhood of Vitacura, and meet your friendly culinary host and chef. Make yourself comfortable as you snack on starters and sip a quality microbrew or cocktail. Enjoy a fine selection of local cheeses, gourmet pate and spreads, and sopaipillas – delicious, deep-fried pastries made from pumpkin dough!

Learn about Chilean culinary history and present-day food culture with a quick introduction to the local cuisine as you watch the chef’s cooking demonstration in the kitchen. Look over a selection of cookbooks, and assist in preparing and cooking the meal if you choose.
