The area
Address
Neighborhood: Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

Amazing food and experience!
Nov 2020
Had an amazing experience. Chef Simone was so excited to have us and share her love for food and her culture with us. We cooked several dishes and made drinks. Everything we made was so delicious. We always wanted more! I liked that she gave us an option before we arrived of what main dish we wanted to make. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in Rio.

Do not recommend
I do not recommend this activity !! We paid and confirmed the small group cooking class. We showed up at the location and no one was there. I called and texted with no response! They took our money and didn't provide us the service! We were looking forward to the class too. I do not recommend to anyone. I think we got scammed!

Can we go back to Cook in Rio tomorrow?
Mar 2020 • Family
We had the most fun time cooking dinner with Simone. Her gregariousness, skill, humor and intelligence were so impressive. What an amazing businesswoman! Our two teenage girls had a fabulous time whipping up Spanish cocktails (nonalcoholic) and frying cheese. The meal was finished up with an amazing seafood dish and honestly, we didn’t want to leave. I can not recommend a visit here strongly enough during your stop in Rio. It will be a long-standing memory that you will cherish.

A fabulous cooking experience
The food we cooked was amazing with Simone guiding us through each step whilst drinking our own freshly made caipirinhas.It was a fun experience learning about the Brazilian culture as we cooked. Definitely worth putting this on the list of things to experience in Rio. Thank you Simone for your infectious enthusiasm .

We had an amazing time learning from Simone! She knows Brazil’s history and culture very well and helps you to understand it via the traditional cuisine. The class was absolutely delightful and food delicious. Highly recommend

A cooking class with comedic flair
Dec 2019 • Friends
We couldn't have been happier with our class. Simone was such fun to be around. You didn't just learn to cook a dish, you learned some history behind the country and the dish. Definitely planning to attend another class. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn some new dishes and have fun doing it.

Great experience
Dec 2019 • Couples
Attended this class with another couple from a cruise ship. Simone welcomed us with great energy. Her explanation of Brazilian culture along with food experience was interesting. She involved each of of us with the preparation of several dishes. Finished with a fish stew. We enjoyed the class.

A taste of Rio
Oct 2019
If you like cooking, this is an excellent way to try out a few Brazilian dishes while learning a LOT about Rio & Brazil as you chop and flambé… A pro at what she does, Chef Simone is also a lively source of local knowledge and culture. A fun & delicious dinner experience!
