What you'll do

The start of every Cuban meal begins with a trip to El Mercado (the market). You will experience the buzz of shopping at one of the best "mercados" in the city; full of greens, fruits, and proteins - everything you will need for your cooking experience. We will then make our way to Tia Islia's where you will prep, cook, and eat while enjoying the company of a lively and fun Cuban family. More than learning how to work the flavors in classic Cuban dishes and understanding the culinary traditions of this beautiful island, you will be enjoying unparalleled access to the warmth and vibrancy of local everyday life.

Jannelle

Tia Ilsia is the matriarch of my Cuban family. Our gatherings begin and end with her in the kitchen. I have been gleefully devouring her authentically delicious dishes for as long as I can remember. Tia Islia and I are now inviting you into our humble, yet spacious kitchen. Prepping for the meal is going to be the best part. This is where you hear all of the stories of how our elders grew up. You will share in our traditions while you cut, clean, and cook. First, we start at the market where you will learn how to shop like us; getting the best deals and using Cuban currency aka Moneda Nacional
