My wife and I learned so much from our evening in the fields with (we forget his name sorry but he spoke amazing English!) and then cooking in the kitchen with Sonya. We've actually cooked some of the foods we learned about at home and are very appreciative. Our guide took us through the farm, we picked a pineapple, he cut it for us and we ate it like ice cream cones in the middle of the field. He also cut fresh sugar cane for us and I have been craving it ever since! It was cool to harvest the same food we then cooked for dinner. After dinner we were dropped back off at our hotel and it was one of the most memorable nights that we had during our trip to Costa Rica. We would 100% recommend this class but only in a very small group.

Our guide Cindy took us for a walking tour of the farm. She described what was grown. We even cut open a Cocoa Pod to taste the fruity seeds.

We carried a straw basket to collect the ingredients to prepare our meal that night. This included tomatoes, peppers, cilantro (which we learnt grows wild) and casava (which we pulled out of the ground).

Back at the Kitchen we prepared to cook 'Traditional Chicken on Annatto Sauce'. We were shown the proper way to carve a whole chicken. Next we made tortillas with corn flour on a wood stove top and learnt how to fry Casava chips. We tossed a salad with our freshly picked farm items.

Dinner was complemented with Guava Drink and Moonshine.

One of our most memorable tours. Would highly recommend as a family activity.
The Aprons we wore were ours to keep. These made a great keepsake.

Amazing cooking class and very tasty! The farm tour was interesting and I appreciated the chance to gather some ingredients for the dinner. Great instructions from Minusca (?--i forgot her name, but she was very sweet) and co-led with Cesar. A great activity to escape during rainy season Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!
