Amazing cooking class
, Jul 2022
Literally one of the best experiences and being able to step outside of the box and try snails was a better plus. You visit other countries to take in their culture and learn new things and this was exactly that.
Food, history and culture in a singular and tasty experience
, Jul 2022
Yes, it’s true, you can feel like a chef! I have booked this experience as a birthday present and I’m so happy I did it. Chef Maria is so welcoming and makes you feel part of the staff, she’s an awesome communicator, with a lot of experience throughout the world, and with so much love for her dear Cartagena food, tradition and culture that you feel immediately love for Cartagena as well. The workshop was in a very good pace with detailed explanations about the ingredients, the techniques and the cultural/historical background. With the help of Maria and her staff we ended with beautiful and very tasty dishes. While it may be hard to believe, the photos are my outcomes of this workshop! Many thanks chef Maria for this amazing experience, I’m a Lunatico by heart 😉

This class was excellent from beginning to end. My friends and I were a little late but they accommodated us graciously. They were so knowledgeable about food and culture in Cartagena and tied the two together to create a memorable experience!

Highly recommend it. A memorable experience learning how to cook authentic meals from Cartagena. Maria made the course very easy to follow and informative. Most of all, the food was really delicious and fresh. I plan to do this course again if I’m back in Cartagena on holidays.
Cooking Fun!

Cool Cartagena Cooking Class

Everything was amazing from the time we walked in until we left. My wife and I learned how to make some great tasting food with a beautiful view of the castle. The fish was fresh, and the dessert was divine. This is the perfect excursion for people looking for an intimate experience

Maria was fantastic! She took us on an in depth tour of the market while shopping for food we would prepare in her very nice studio kitchen. Everything was perfect! She taught us her culture while we cooked some traditional foods of Columbia. A must do while in Columbia!
Wow, absolutely fantastic!

María is super cool with an interesting life story and a non-traditional path to becoming a chef and restauranteur. This was the most fun I've ever had taking a cooking class, and the food turned out amazing. If you take any cooking class in Cartagena this should be it.
Kolumbianische Küche

Wirklich gute Empfehlung, wenn man schon mal in Cartagena ist. Ceviche einmal anders! Die Köchin erklärt alles ganz genau, so kann beim Selbermachen nichts schiefgehen.

Toll, einfach ein richtig nettes Ergebnis mit gleichgesinnten Koch- und Kulturinteressierten. Man lernt viel und isst fantastisch selbst Zubereitetes. Empfehlenswert!
Excelente clase
