I like to pack as many real cultural experiences I can into a trip. On my last day in Rio, I started my day with a 10am to 2pm cooking class with the amazing chef Simone. This is my favourite thing I've done in Rio. There were 5 of us in the class. Simone teaches from her restaurant in the oldest part of Rio. Simone is passionate, genuine and a lot of fun. Simone taught us about the cultural influences from the 3 major cultural groups in Brazil. She tells us about how food defines us, brings out our character and influences our moods. It was a great hands-on experience. We made two appetizers, an incredible traditional fish dish, rice and vegetables. Last but not least we made and drank 3 different types of Caipirinhas. I am certain I will stay in touch with the warm, beautiful, generous and talented Chef Simone. At the end of the class we all sat down to eat the dishes we had prepared together. At $75 US this is an amazing deal.
