Daniela was a fantastic host, a fabulous chef/baker and a wonderful and interesting person to spend the morning with. We cooked together, explored the Plaza Minorista Market and ate our best meal so far in Colombia. My friend especially loved the patacón and we will certainly be making that as well as the guacamole, agua panela, tres leches cake and arroz con pollo again. I enjoyed her style, she was as hands on or off as we wanted with cooking, and she was informative and happy to share, but also curious as to our opinions and experiences. Any ingredient or topic we were curious about she had a wealth of information about it, and was constantly offering us local fruits and snacks. She also had great recommendations for where to go and what to do around Medellin including a great cafe and several shops which we visited directly after the tour. I would definitely recommend this experience and may even do it again before we leave Colombia!

Daniela and her mother, Beatriz, were a delight to come home to on our first day in Medellín! My boyfriend, mother and I enjoyed a home cooked meal of sopa de plátano, sudado de muchacho and merengón with guanabana sauce and fresh strawberries and peaches. I loved drinking agua panela con limón—brown sugar and lime juice typical of the region. We enjoyed watching and learning about the cooking process—it was more of a hands on demonstration which we were grateful for as we had just landed. Daniela picked us up from our hotel and took us back. Her mom is a firecracker and we loved chatting with them both! They also had amazing restaurant recommendations! I can’t wait to return.

This was a lot of fun and the food was delicious. One of the tour items we typically do in our travels is to participate in a cooking class. Of the various cooking classes which we have taken in various locations around the world, this was the best. It is a wonderful way to obtain an insider’s perspective of the culture, food, and people. Daniela, her mother and Caren (the assistant for the cooking class) were our hosts. The class takes place in her family’s beautiful, high-rise apartment in the Poblado district of Medellin, an easy 15-minute walk from our hotel. Daniela and crew had all ingredients prepared for our class when we arrived. They took us through each step of preparation of authentic, delicious , Colombian meals. After the meal preparation, we sat down at their table to enjoy the items which we had prepared. They were attentive, very organized and friendly. It was an outstanding experience. I highly recommend it to visitors.

My friends and I wanted to experience more of the culture of Medellin and decided on a cooking lesson with a local chef. Daniela (fluent in English) was very friendly and welcomed us into her home. She has great open communication with us before arrival in regards to what we would like to cook and which market we wanted to experience. She and her adorable mother took us to the local market where we were able to try the local snacks and fruits. After the markets, we came back to her home and enjoyed drinks and the home cooked meal which we were able to partially prepare. Daniela also gave us suggestions on local hot spots and recommended a tour group for us to get in touch with for the following day. My friends and I were able to experience a unique side of Columbia’s culture with Daniela’s cooking lesson/market tour!

Excellent environment. Daniella and her mom make you feel just at home. Fun environment to learn a couple of typical Medellin/Colombian dishes. We had a lot of fun.

My wife and I arranged a market tour and cooking lesson with Daniela through Traveling Spoon and we couldn't have been any happier with our experience. Daniela and her mother, Beatriz, welcomed us into their beautiful apartment in Medellin and made us feel at home. We started by walking over to a local farmer's market where we tried Colombian fruits and treats (try the arepa de choclo con queso!), Daniela and Beatriz loved introducing and sharing everything us. Next we returned the apartment where we began cooking arroz con pollo for lunch and tres leches for dessert. Daniela was fun to cook with and she thoughtfully explained every step (and had us try more fruits and drinks) a long the way. Sharing a meal with Daniela and Beatriz was a perfect way to end the morning, they loved to share their stories and experiences in Medellin and Colombia. We will definitely be looking for Traveling Spoon during our future travels and highly recommend this experience with Daniela!

Daniela and her mother Beatrice welcomed us into their home and shared books, conversation and most importantly, cooking! It was cool to cook a local favorite and have the ability to bring this new recipe home with us. We were also treated to some local drinks and jams. Daniela was so accommodating that even though the markets were closed when we went, she took us on a journey to see the spectacular Christmas lights display in downtown Medellín. Booking this experience is a MUST DO in the city! We will be sure to recommend to all our friends and family.
