Authentic Costa Rican Cooking Demonstration with Locals on Their Organic Farm

This is a fantastic opportunity to get a glimpse into modest Costa Rican life. Your experience will start with your hosts Gabriel and Mima walking you around the farm area and showing you the different fruits and vegetables they grow. You will be using some of those ingredients to cook a traditional meal during your upcoming cooking lesson. Mima's and Gabriel's kitchen is clean and well kept - however, it is rustic and very small. You will use the outside area to do most of your prep work and the final cooking will be a demonstration as there isn’t much space to cook together in the kitchen. You will also see and get to use few really innovative appliances like a solar oven and a stationary bicycle that powers a blender! The cooking part of the experience will last for 30-45 minutes. You will learn how to make a pico de gallo tomato salsa from scratch and also the plantain dessert, which is their own recipe, inspired by old traditional Costa Rican cooking.
