Where you'll be

We will be in the kitchen of our family restaurant, which meant a lot to us. in the historic center of Cartagena, a kitchen with music, air conditioning, and we have decorated with photos of all the people who have visited us as a way to remember our friends all over the world. In this kitchen, not only is cooking, we also dance once when (our chefs also know how to dance a lot!)

Had a wonderful time learning about traditional Colombian cooking! We even took a quick dance break whilst waiting for our fish to bake. Only thing to know is that this class is hosted by Origines restaurant, as it can be a little tricky to find.

If you love learning about the culture of Colombia, please go to this class. Daniela and Jose are a perfect team and they made me feel so special. But lets get to the real part of making the amazing food. The fish was the best fish, I have ever had in my life. Also, Jose taught me how to salsa dance which was an added bonus to the cooking class. I went solo and met some amazing people in my class.

We had our class with Jesus and Laura. They were both amazing, lively people. It was a lot of food so come with an empty belly! My group of 6 had an amazing time.
