About
The cooking class begins: we offer you a chef's hat and an apron for preparing the 3 dishes you will cook; which they are typical Ecuadorian recipes: a « Locro Quiteño », an « Encocado » and a Chocolate Soup. These foods have been chosen specifically because the ingredients used can be found worldwide, so you will have the chance to cook these recipes in your own country. You are invited to participate and to become a Chef: you have the possibility to manipulate food, peel, cut, season, mix, beat... During the class, the Chef is accompanying and guiding you, he gives explanations and details about the history of each dish and its origin. After elaborating the 3 courses, you have the pleasure to taste what you own prepared with the Chef in a unique place: in the “patio” of a Colonial House.

Vanessa was very accommodating; dishes were delicious, Market tour helped us value Ecuador’s wealth of tropical fruit. What a great way to get to know Ecuadorean cuisine!

I've taken cooking classes all over the world and this is one of the best. Chef Edwin knows his ingredients - Ecuadorian and French - and has many friends at the market. We sampled fruits, pork, creams and snacks before buying what we needed and heading to his restaurant to cook.
Completely hands on, fun and delicious recipes - that I shall try when I get home.
Highly recommended

This was awesome!!! Chef Edwin picked us up at our hotel and we walked to his favorite market. We learned about the typical fruits and vegetables in Ecuador and then got to decide what to cook. Edwin helped us pick out the ingredients and then we went back to his restaurant and cooked an amazing 3 course meal. It was so much fun and so delicious. Edwin was fantastic! Would totally do this again and highly recommend to anyone visiting Quito
