My wife and I took this cooking class with Chef Edwin. While in Ecuador, we went to the Galapagos, the Amazon Rainforest, and celebrated the Fiestas de Quito. This was arguably one of our top experiences on the trip. Chef Edwin is very hospital and multilingual. He spent the first part making sure we were comfortable and plan out the menu with us. When we were ready, we took a tour of the markets where he and locals buy their groceries. Along the way, he shared and explained the Ecuadorian culture and history and asked us about ourselves. He taught us about the local fruits at the beginning of the tour and then at the end had use find specific fruits ourselves in a market as a quiz (so make sure you're paying attention). Back at the restaurant, the cooking setup was in a beautiful style building (similar to Andalusian style homes in Spain). Chef Edwin taught us new techniques and recipes for cooking, preparing, and displaying food that blew us away. And at the end, we got to have the food in a special and intimate setting.
I highly encourage you to take this class if you want to take part in an experience (not just vacation observing), have an interest in food, an interest in a group activity, or an interest in culture.
