We had the most amazing day with Chef Tatan(Cristian). Our day started with a tour of the Central Market as he explained the history of the area and some of the architectural aspects of the beautiful old buildings we passed. We walked into the Market and toured the different stalls which provided a wide array of fresh fish, vegetables and meat. After we completed our shopping trip we headed to his home. Along the way, he told us about his city(Santiago). When we arrived at his home, he served us appetizers and we talked a bit before being ushered into the kitchen to put on aprons and start our cooking lesson. When we were done, we had another appetizer of scallops bought from the market, ceviche, a stew and dessert. When we got back to the hotel, my husband settled into a lovely food coma. I highly recommend this tour. We feel we have made a new friend in Cristian and appreciate the time he spent with us.

Our day with Cristian (Tatan) was more than we expected... from when he picked us up... the extraordinary variety at the markets and his knowledge of products, local culture and history... followed by an initiation tour of the highlights of Santiago. Arriving at his beautiful home and view with glimpses on the Andes - spectacular. We were indulged from the moment of arrival and the food, wine (Pisco Sours) and company were delightful. Many laughs and a truly memorable experience (including fun helping prep in the kitchen) was our 'best day' in South America! Thank you again Tatan💌
