Such a fun and fantastic cooking course with Simone! It was extremely hands on, interesting and very entertaining. Simone is absolutely lovely and quite a character - best cooking course I've been on! It's a must in Rio! X

I just booked this class at the last minute this morning and received a speedy reply from Simone who booked me in straight away for this afternoon. This was a fantastic experience.

A Wonderful Class! I highly recommend it! Simone is great and we learned so much! We took the moqueca class, but I am sure the feijoada class is good as well.

We loved every minute of our class! Chef Simone was extremely welcoming and made sure that each student had the opportunity to be involved and take away from the class! The flow was very natural and while sipping the delicious caipirinhas we made, we had a chance to ask questions and chat about ourselves, and learn about Brazil in general.... More

Having taken other cooking classes in other countries, I would say this cooking class is A LOT more than just a cooking class where you learn how to cook authentic Brazilian dishes. It is as a very personal customized experience with an amazing and charismatic chef, who also feels like one of your friends! We laughed and talked for the... More

Simply put, Chef Simone is the best! We absolutely loved our cooking class experience and would recommend to anyone visiting Rio. First and foremost, the knowledge and cooking skill of Chef Simone was evident from the moment we arrived. The experience was truly an "authentic" Brazilian experience and the food was AMAZING. Moqueca, caipirnihas, feijoada....every drink and dish that we... More

We had the most amazing time with Simone. The atmosphere and food was out if this world. But best of all was her insight into Brazil especially Rio. I wish we had gone on our first day in Rio. Simone makes you feel at home and encourages everyone to be hands on. We will be cooking Brazillian style for many... More

I found this cooking class on Trip Adviser and decided to give it a try during my stay in Rio. I thought it would be a great way to learn a bit about the culture and food, as well as a way to bring home a 'souvenir' I can use from years to come. Well, Chef Simone did not disappoint!... More

My wife is an amazing cook and is always trying t get me into the kitchen to cook. She thought this would be a good way to introduce us to food from my homeland and get me interested. The class with Simone certainly didn't disappoint; with her unique teaching style, full of local history and anecdotes along with excellent tips.... More
