About
You host Catalina will take you to the Plaza de la America, a food market stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and other groceries. Catalina will give you a private tour and you may buy fresh ingredients like tree tomato (pitaya) to use in your cooking class later. After your trip to the market, you will drive back to Catalina's apartment for your hands-on cooking experience. Her kitchen is small but functional, and has a bar and open window area perfect for demonstrations. The cooking portion will last for about two hours, and you will learn to make an appetizer, a main dish and a dessert! A few traditional dishes that Catalina may teach you to make are patacones (fried and smashed plantains), bandeja paisa (traditional dish from Antioquia, contains ingredients like, beans, rice, meat, salsa and bacon) and coconut flan.  Join in on this authentic experience with a local and get a taste of true Colombian culture and cuisine!

We started at our hotel in Medellin, where Daniela (Chef) picked us up. It was very good organized. Arrived at her home in Medellin we started to prepare lunch and while everything was cooking we explored the nearby market to buy other fruits and vegetables. It was such a great experience as we learned more about Colombia and its amazing food and taste. After the market we went home and had lunch. It was sooo good. I would definitely highly recommend this tour for you when you are in Medellin. Furthermore, Daniela was so nice she recommended further restaurants and places to visit on our vacation in Colombia. All in all, it was a super experience and such a nice & lovely family.
