Colombian Cooking Class
Food is one of the great unifiers on this diverse planet. During this half-day tour, learn about Cartagena's foods, how to prepare them, and experience a different side to this great city.
First, you'll visit the bustling Bazurto open-air market, which is likely to be fraught with vendors, as you pick out the perfect ingredients for your upcoming culinary adventure. Your professional, bilingual guide will be happy to tell you all about the different dishes you encounter.
Pass by the various sections of the market, including the fruit area, where you'll be able to sample some tropical delicacies; and the busy meat market. Once you've completed your time at the market, you'll journey to La Boquilla, a fishing village where your local cook is waiting for you.
At La Boquilla, your cook will share local recipes with you that have been handed down from generation to generation. Unlike some other tours, you won't just put ingredients in a bowl, you'll be involved in every step of the process.
Once your meal is prepared, dig in, and enjoy the fruits of your labor, which might include plantain fries, coconut rice, fresh salad, and the main course of fried fish, lobster, or ceviche. Taste for yourself your hard work paying off as you enjoy the meal!
