Local flavor / Cooking lessons in Quepos

Tour Description

Experience a fun and informative tour of local cuisine: where the organic ingredients come from, how they are prepared, and how to recreate them at home. First stop at the local farmers’ market in Quepos, where you will have the opportunity to browse the stands and pick out ingredients for your lunch with the guide’s assistance depending on menu designed for you. Once in the small town of Londres,  the staff will guide you through the organic garden to pick out some finishing flavors, colors and textures for your meal. Now, to the preparation guided by our expert local cooks. Participate in the kitchen and experience the process of making corn tortillas by hand, exotic “ceviches” with plantain or banana, rice cooked the old-fashioned way, chicken in a hearty tomato sauce, “picadillos” (minced meats and veggies and spices combined), and more. Once you sit down for your meal, not only will your appetite be satiated but also your curiosity for Costa Rican local flavors. Let your imagination soar on how to recreate at home with your own seasonal ingredients.
