What you'll do
Discover Colombia's Pacific Coast gastronomy first hand with this unique cooking class and dining experience. Learn about the culture as you prepare a delicious traditional meal with Iris, a young chef who loves to share the recipes and stories inherited by her grandmother, who raised her in the heart of Chocó (Pacific region of Colombia). We will learn, share, laugh, and enjoy together the magical flavors of this rich cuisine. I (Alex) will host the experience in my beautiful, fully renovated apartment with a dramatic view of the city. I will make sure that you miss no information, neither because of language nor cultural references, and that you get the most out of the class, the food and the socialization. Together, we will be preparing a traditional appetizer, main course, and drink (Iris will bring the dessert), which we will then all share as we enjoy a warm and enlightening conversation.
I started a social enterprise called Todos Podemos, which teaches people living in vulnerable conditions how to create their own business and have a positive social and environmental impact at the same time. One of my students, Iris, is trying to open her restaurant to promote healthy eating and the great gastronomical culture of her native Chocó (Colombian Pacific Coast). She is a amazing person and chef... And, since I am equally passionate about food than social impact, I offered her to teach and cook together for my guests. The experience (and the food) is spectacular!

Just bring your smile! I will provide all the cooking appliances and everything you may need to enjoy the meal & the company!
Where you'll be
The experience will take place in my fully remodeled apartment, right in front of the city's famous soccer stadium. The kitchen is fully equipped and very modern, and we will cook around the island. We will then eat either in the main area or on the balcony and enjoy the view... You choose!
