Description

Take a bite out of Guatemala’s culinary culture as you dive hands-on into the preparation of traditional local recipes. Under the guidance of a professional chef, learn about local ingredients, whip up a delectable meal, and sit down to savour the delicious fruits of your labour.

Get picked up from your hotel an head to colonial Antigua Guatemala for your cooking class. When you arrive, your chef describes the ways in which Guatemalan flavours, ingredients, and cooking techniques have been shaped by both Spanish colonial and ancient Maya influences. Choose 1 main dish, 2 side dishes, and 1 dessert to prepare from options like hilachas (shredded beef in red sauce) and tamales of smooth maize masa filled with meat and wrapped in banana leaves.

Dessert might be rellenitos, mashed plantains stuffed with sweetened black beans before being fried and dusted with sugar, or camote, a speciality made with sweet potato. Once everything is off the stove and out of the oven, gather around the table to feast on your creations. At the end of your class, walk away with printed recipes so that you can recreate the flavours of Guatemala back home.

Chef Sonia was great at explaining what we were cooking and how we should prepare the food to be cooked. She answered all questions and was quite friendly. I attended this class with my mother and my husband; we enjoyed learning to cook the dishes and spending time with each other. There were a total of 7 people in the class, so it was lots of fun talking with the others as we prepared the meal. When the meal was prepared, we all sat down to enjoy the meal. After the meal, we were all able to take leftovers with us. If you don’t speak or understand Spanish, don’t worry as the have a very nice translator from Columbia who translated and made sure everyone understood what was going on.
