What to Expect
Join us for a Dinner Party + Workshop while you visit Cali.

Get an insider´s experience of the culture and history of the Colombian Pacific Coast while learning how to cook traditional dishes made with the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Dinners take place in our redesigned home, an airy oasis in a centrally located, easily accessible and safe neighborhood in the city. My aunt and I will greet you with an assortment of tropical fruit juices and traditional snacks. Then, we will teach you easy to recreate recipes inspired by culinary heritage of the Pacific Littoral, including: tapao (fish stew with plantains), guiso de jaiba (crab casserole), ceviche, carimañolas (stuffed yuca fritters).

Dinner is paired with: a cocktail made with artisanal sugarcane derived spirits (viche), conversations about the culture and history of the pacific Coast and music from the region. When we have six or more guests, dinner is served to the beat of live music.

Our focus is seafood but we can accommodate your diet needs. We support artisanal fishermen and local farmers.

Arouse your senses, make friends, live a memorable experience, join us at our next Dinner Party + Workshop.
