About
Would you like to get to know the Ecuadorian cuisine while visiting? This half day tour takes you to the local food market in the historical centre and to a very cosy restaurant close to the Basilica where you will prepare your traditional Ecuadorian dishes. The Ecuadorian chef goes to the market with you and explains you about the endemic fruits and vegetables. You will be given a chef’s hat, an apron and a mini recipe book with 3 dishes you will be cooking. These recipes that you will cook are traditional Ecuadorian dishes: Locro Quiteño, Encocado and a Chocolate soup. These three recipes were chosen because the ingredients used can be found all over the world. Therefore, you will be able to cook it once again in your own country for your family and friends.

A fun way to experience Quito
Mar 2019 • Couples
The trip to the market was great, seeing the different fruits, how the coconuts were rated, the vendors. The meal afterwards was tremendous. Wish Chef Edwin's English was a little clearer but the whole experience was worth it.

Thanks for your nice review! And yes, I can assure you that the cook's English improves every day, bit by bit. As you have experienced, with this cooking class you will come in contact with the many beautiful products that are offered on the Ecuadorian market. And preparing it yourself with the cook always gives something extra! Hope to see you soon again on one of the nice tours of Rebecca in South America! Saludos cordiales, Willem Rebecca Adventure Travel

Excellent Cooking Class
Aug 2018 • Friends
Chef Edwin took us shopping at the Central Market and several smaller establishments. He was very patient explaining the different ingredients and getting us samples. Then we prepared the meal ourselves with the chefs guidance - he would show us what to do and then stepped aside to let us prepare the meal. The results were excellent and delicious!
