Private Tour: Cooking Class in Quito + Local Market Tour & Exotic Fruit Tasting

Private Tour: Cooking Class in Quito + Local Market Tour & Exotic Fruit Tasting

The cooking class begins: we offer you a chef's hat and an apron for preparing the 3 dishes you will cook; which they are typical Ecuadorian recipes: a « Locro Quiteño », an « Encocado » and a Chocolate Soup. These foods have been chosen specifically because the ingredients used can be found worldwide, so you will have the chance to cook these recipes in your own country. You are invited to participate and to become a Chef: you have the possibility to manipulate food, peel, cut, season, mix, beat... During the class, the Chef is accompanying and guiding you, he gives explanations and details about the history of each dish and its origin. After elaborating the 3 courses, you have the pleasure to taste what you own prepared with the Chef in a unique place: in the “patio” of a Colonial House.
