This is the only place in the city that introduces participants to the history and culture of Chile and its food.The participants get to cook 5 to 6 traditional Chilean dishes. Gonzalo the chef gives the class in Spanish and English.Pebre, Pisco Sour, Ceviche ( The Chef explains the difference between Chilean and Peruvian Ceviche) Charquican (one of the most important dishes in Chile) Chuchoca de Maíz and Puré de papas con Naranja y menta which is a mi of mashed potatoes with oranges and mint .Before the class starts, we get all the ingredients needed at the local market where you can find all the typical Chilean fruits and vegetables.The class includes enough food samplings for most people to not need lunch afterwards « less

It turns out that it is not easy to find cooking lessons in Valparaiso that center on authentically Chilean food. Peruvian owned and influenced restaurants have been taking over and becoming increasingly popular. The two of us had a 6 hour day with Gonzalo, first at the local market, then in the compact but very functional small restaurant/cafe kitchen. We... More

Cooking Class: I chose Chef Gonzolo Lara after reading reviews because I thought we would get a more personal cooking class that the #1 ranked class. Gonzolo Lara is $12000 pesos more, but again personal service instead of the other class. We started at approx 10am. We did not go to the market - disappointed. Chopped for 3 hours -... More

Very nice and very good cooking course! Learned the basics of chilean food! Gonzalo is nice and good at teaching. A wee bit costy for 2 persons. But absolutely recommendable!

After five months of studying in Valparaíso, I decided to splurge and take Gonzalo's Chilean Cooking Class. Cafe Vinilo is by far my favorite restaurant in Valparaíso and I wanted to know how to prepare my favorite meals once home. After six hours of cooking and learning from Chef Gonzalo, I can safely agree that it is an amazing experience.... More

We did this great Chilean cooking class in Valparaiso. Chef Gonzalo Lara of Cafe Vinilo is full of fun, if slightly crazy, and infuses this class with his passion for the local food. What I especially liked about his teaching approach was that I did not stand back to watch a chef in action. No, it was hands-on experience for... More

Go to Cafe Vinilo and have dinner; it was some of the best and most interesting food we found in Chile. And then sign up chef, Gonzalo Lara to take you on his unique anti-tour of Valparaiso. It is the perfect tour, packing a month's worth of visits into 2-3 hours, done at breakneck speed, seeing parts of the citiy... More

He is passionate about food and chilean cooking and passes it to the group. We started by going to the Food Market early in the morning to buy the... More

We cooked with Gonzalo last December. The Chilean kitchen surprised us a lot! Very tasty and a lot of vegetables. First we went to the market for all the ingredients and after a little tour through Valparaiso we went to Gonzalo’s house. He explained everything very well and we cooked 5 or 6 different dished. We went back to his... More
