In this kitchen, not only is cooking, we also dance once when (our chefs also know how to dance a lot!)

Jose and the other chefs were AMAZING! If you’re in Cartagena I highly recommend them! The class was engaging, fun and full of laughter. My children ages 9 and 10 attended the class with me and they enjoyed every minute. The restaurant is beautiful! I recommend this this activity.

I chose this experience instead of others here on Airbnb, because the menu offered the traditional dishes of Cartagena I most wanted to try, and the price point was hard to beat! When all was done, we couldn't believe the meal we'd prepared! It was so, so delicious and definitely something we want to replicate at home. I'm so happy we took this class and would gladly book another with a different menu and visit their restaurant, Origenes. This chef and staff know what they are doing, and not only that, they are funny and sweet too! You won't regret booking with them! Have lots of fun, and enjoy the delicious meal!

My husband I took the cooking class for our date night and had a wonderful time! We loved getting to meet the other guests, cook a traditional meal, and learn about the culture. Jose spoke just the right amount of English and Cesar spoke in Spanish which made it a rich experience, learning in both Spanish and English. The actual class was longer than 2 hours ; I did not feel rushed and enjoyed the extra time to mingle with guests and also learn a few salsa steps. Jose and Cesar know how to work together in a way that makes the guests feel comfortable. The room we cooked in was clean and cool, a nice reprieve from the Cartagena heat. They were thorough in their instructions and our food was DELICIOUS! We had a fantastic time and the price is unbeatable! We have another few weeks here so I hope I see more classes from them pop up!
