Owner description: Taking a Chilean cuisine class with El café Vinilo’s chef was by far one of the best experiences I had in Valparaíso . This is the only place in the city that introduces participants to the history and culture of Chile and its food.The participants get to cook 5 to 6 traditional Chilean dishes. Gonzalo the chef gives the class in Spanish and English.Pebre, Pisco Sour, Ceviche ( The Chef explains the difference between Chilean and Peruvian Ceviche) Charquican (one of the most important dishes in Chile) Chuchoca de Maíz and Puré de papas con Naranja y menta which is a mi of mashed potatoes with oranges and mint .Before the class starts, we get all the ingredients needed at the local market where you can find all the typical Chilean fruits and vegetables.The class includes enough food samplings for most people to not need lunch afterwards

After spending a semester in Valparaíso, my friend and I had the most genuine experience and ate the best food we had eaten in 6 months during this cooking class. Chef Gonzalo Vial picked us up outside of Cafe Vinilo at around 11:30 and drove us to the market in Valparaíso. First of all, just getting the opportunity to see the distinct, beautiful markets that this city has to offer was an experience in itself - we saw huge rooms full of buckets of herbs and spices, and streets lined with fruit, vegetable, and fish vendors. Then he drove us through the hills of Valparaíso, pointing out some of the important yet less well-known buildings of the area, introducing us to his favorite Chilean music, and stopping to buy empanadas from his favorite empanada place. Then we went right to his home, where we briefly met his wonderful family. We worked in his kitchen for 5 1/2 hours. He insists that we prepare everything - he was a good teacher, patient, and we learned both the history of the food we were making and general cooking tips. He is friendly and easy-going and incredibly easy to talk to. The environment was very comfortable and fun, and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this class - I will always remember this day fondly!

An amazing time with a wonderful chef, filled with a trip to the market and a preparation of the food for approximately 5 1/2 hours followed by an amazing presentation and meal at Café Vinilo.

The chef met us at Café Vinilo at 8:30 in the morning, and then drove us to the market Centro. The hostal didn't have breakfast ready when they said they would, solution. Some avocado guacamole as well as bread in the morning for some breakfast with tea.

We prepared food for approximately 5 1/2 hours at his house mixed with laughter and conversation about the world and about cooking. we drove the food back to Café Vinilo where it was presented and prepared on the tableware/silverware at Café Vinilo. We then celebrated our accomplishment with a glass of wine with the meal and relished in the day.
