Caribbean Cooking Class
Learn to cook in the traditional Caribbean way with one of Puerto Viejo’s matriarchs . Patacones, rice and beans, fresh fruit batidos, fish or chicken in Caribbean Sauce and more.
A 2 hour class includes instruction and of course you get to eat the food you prepare! Using fruits and veggies typical to Coastal Talamanca, you’ll learn to cook in the traditional Caribbean way—things like Patacones, rice and beans, batidos, fish or chicken in Caribbean Sauce for example. This is also an opportunity to spend some time with one of the mothers from our community, Puerto Viejo. Here the Afro-Caribbean folks speak what some call “Patios” some call a local dialect of English. Some call this language “Make I tell you” because many a phrase starts with Make I tell you… or Let me tell you what’s been happening. A great way to spend a rainy day.
INCLUDES: An appetizer upon arrival, main dish of your choosing, a traditional dessert and a homemade (you made) natural drink, (beer and wine also available), and your entertaining instruction
$55 per person, Choose, chicken, veggie, or fish --
