What you'll do

From our family restaurant located in the heart of the historic center of Cartagena, Colombia we will connect to learn traditional Colombian recipes and the stories behind the dishes and us too.

Get ready because you will prepare the delicious and crunchy empanadas made with corn flour like a native Colombian,
without forgetting the sour cream sauce, which is indispensable for eating empanadas here in Colombia. we will also prepare the filling for our empanadas from scratch (if you are a vegetarian there is room for you too!)

Besides the empanadas we will also prepare the delicious and multifaceted patacones, they are soft inside but crunchy outside, and you can't miss their respective typical sauce, where butter and garlic predominate to give them their characteristic flavor! which you will learn to prepare too!

We will also prepare the Arepas, soft and full of cheese, so much so that it melts and comes out by its edges!

This class is a good way to connect with your friends, or a great date for your partner too, or if you prefer a fun activity to do with your family! My intention is that this class will end up being an unforgettable lunch/dinner.

If you are interested in a private class for you and your friends or for a business event, do not doubt to ask, we will be available!

Note: the ingredients work for at least 3 people.

We held this on a Friday night for my birthday and it was so much fun! I was getting texts and videos of people trying to make more and eating leftovers the rest of the weekend. It was so much fun!

This was a great experience and I highly recommend it!! I booked it so my mom, sister, and I could cook "together" since we are in different locations. It was easy to follow Orlando's instructions to make delicious empanadas, arepas, and patacones!
