Description

Discover the flavours of Guatemalan cuisine on a food-focused foray that takes you from the bustle of the market to the dining table. Learn to prepare traditional dishes during a cooking class, and pay a visit to the Choco Musuem to channel your inner chocolatier.

Kick off your culinary adventure at the Mercado de Antigua, a colourful daily market that draws visitors and locals alike to its plethora of indoor and outdoor stands. Peruse the goods on offer at meat and produce stands sandwiched between vendors peddling everything from colourful clothes to hand-carved masks. Your guide points out some of the typical foods of the region and the ingredients used in Guatemalan cooking.

From there, make your way to the kitchen and roll up your sleeves for a hands-on cooking class. Learn to whip up traditional savoury plates like tamales or hilachas, a dish of shredded beef simmered in a mild tomatillo-tomato sauce. For dessert, make delectable treats like rellenitos (mashed plantains stuffed with sweetened black beans and then fried and sprinkled with sugar) or camote en dulce, a treat of sweet potatoes in a sweet cinnamon syrup.

Sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labour, and then make your way to the Choco Museum. Learn all about the chocolate-making process from bean to bar, and then participate in an engaging chocolate-making workshop before your delicious day comes to close.
