I am Argentinian, but I have lived in Chile for the last 10 years. I left my country of origin and came here for love. I come from a family with Spanish and Italian roots so good food is something that I bring from the cradle, that's why I decided to turn my passion almost 5 years ago to start offering culinary experiences, where I can show our culture through the kitchen .

Where you'll be

We will visit the different markets that Santiago has: "Mercado central", "Tirso de Molida", "Pergola de las Flores", "La Vega Chica" and "La Vega Central". We dedicate this last one more time as Santiago's biggest market, a place full of color and full of Chilean characters, a "must" to visit in Santiago. Then we go to the kitchen in the neighborhood of "Barrio Italia" (10 minutes by car), specially enabled for these classes

The cooking class was so much fun. The visit to the market was a fantastic experience, to see the most fantastic produce from a beautiful country. The kitchen set up was very nice and space for all 7 of us to gather around the large island, participate, talk, laugh and learn about Chilean cooking. What a lovely way to spend a day in Santiago and I would highly recommend it.

This was my first Airbnb experience and I couldn’t be happier! Gerardo was a great host and tour guide, he was fully prepared and shared so much about the background of chilean cuisine. He was also very fun which made the whole experience enjoyable. The food was really great and everyone who participated was included in the preparation. I highly recommend this experience! Thank you so much for the day, Gerardo!

Great experience for a day in Santiago! Gerardo, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. The meals we prepared were great, but be sure to eat breakfast before since lunch won’t be served until it’s been cooked in the early afternoon. Drinks were also great and plentiful.
