I did this with my wife and there was another American couple there too. We had a blast. Simone was extremely friendly and really has a great passion for Rio and Brazil. I would recommend doing this earlier on in your stay because these types of cultural experiences give you a better feel for the city. Simone also gave us... More

Cook in Rio was not was I expecting, despite this it was a great addition to the variety of the things I did during my one month holidays in Rio! My imagination was that each participant will have his own table and cook food individually! We were actually standing around the table looking and listening to the Funny Chef Simona... More

The restaurant has a... More

OMG - My wife and I attended Somine's class on January 2nd this year during our first trip to Brazil. She is a fabulous instructor and chef. She does a great job educating her students in Brazilian culture and history and how their cuisine had evolved. She's very entertaining and engages everyone to participate in cooking the meal that you... More

We loved everything about this class! Simone our instructor was fantastic; enthusiastic, friendly and engaging. She made sure every student was involved in the class and made sure everybody was enjoying themselves! We were also made to feel at home right from the start, with an endless supply of ice cold bottled water (always refreshing in Rio), a caipirinha during... More

We spent a week in Brazil: history, sights, music, dancing, energy, beaches, art and culture. It is easy to be overwhelmed ... but nothing will be as memorable and enjoyable as a cooking class with Simone. She not only teaches cooking but dispenses insight, wisdom, and brings out the best in everyone. Her insights on cultures and people are refreshing.... More

This turned out to be a very fun and different way of getting to know the local cuisine, Simone was a very entertaining host and had tons of stories about food and brazilian lifestyle. She kept us engaged throughout the class, between laughter and delicious caipirinha we hardly realized the time pass. We recommend the class if you are in... More

Simone was amazing! We were a small group so we had all the chance to cook and get some usefull tips... Not only on cooking but also on Rio's culture and people lifestyles. We did the Feijoada... very good! You eat what you did during those 3 hours class after. I strongly recommand it. Have fun!

Sharing of passion for food and people of Brazil, and of course the visitors to her class is Simone's gift. She has us enthralled with her anecdotes and comments as she threw together some traditional dishes. It was definitely a good way to spend a few hours. Eating and drinking and chatting to others in the class, and Simone, leant... More
