What you'll do

In Cuba we say, "Love starts in the kitchen." My family and I will open the doors of our kitchen to share with you our typical food and traditional Cuban culinary recipes. While we taste a mojito, we will teach you how to cook the most emblematic dishes of Cuban cuisine, in addition to the genuine recipes passed down by our grandmothers. It will be a fun cooking class and through our kitchen, you'll get closer to Cuban history and enjoy authentic food in an intimate and family atmosphere—different from any restaurants in the city.
Other things to note
We will prepare this experience together and I will be available to satisfy any request in terms of preferences or food intolerances.

Although we now have a B&B in the center of the city, we are a family from the countryside of Cuba, with a rich culinary culture transmitted from our grandmothers—and we want to share this experience. My aunts are all expert cooks, and I have a degree in the history of Cuba. Together we nurture a great love for our cuisine and traditions.

A really fun afternoon learning how to make some Cuban classics, then enjoying the fruits of our labour in a beautiful colonial home. Great value for money too.

A great experience. This was my second time taking the experience. I went with my husband and daughter and we felt welcomed as we learned to prepare a mojito and traditional meal. It felt more like cooking woth family than a class. Thanks for a great experience.

One of the highlights of two weeks travelling around Cuba. A truly lovely experience. Our hosts were kind and friendly, and were totally organised and prepared for the experience. They were happy to change the time to suit us, as our plans had changed. The food was delicious, and we’re cooking it again back in London! This was just truly lovely, authentic and warm experience. Thank you!

We had such a lovely time cooking with Muneca! It was awesome to learn some traditional Cuban recipes, have a dinner, and learn more about Cuban life. Would recommend this experience!
