What you'll do

From our family restaurant located in the heart of the historic center of Cartagena, Colombia we will connect to learn traditional Colombian recipes and the stories behind the dishes and us too.

Get ready because you will prepare the delicious and crunchy empanadas made with corn flour like a native Colombian,
without forgetting the sour cream sauce, which is indispensable for eating empanadas here in Colombia. we will also prepare the filling for our empanadas from scratch (if you are a vegetarian there is room for you too!)

Besides the empanadas we will also prepare the delicious and multifaceted patacones, they are soft inside but crunchy outside, and you can't miss their respective typical sauce, where butter and garlic predominate to give them their characteristic flavor! which you will learn to prepare too!

We will also prepare the Arepas, soft and full of cheese, so much so that it melts and comes out by its edges!

This class is a good way to connect with your friends, or a great date for your partner too, or if you prefer a fun activity to do with your family! My intention is that this class will end up being an unforgettable lunch/dinner.

If you are interested in a private class for you and your friends or for a business event, do not doubt to ask, we will be available!

Note: the ingredients work for at least 3 people.

This was my second experience with Jose and Tiffany cooking empanadas, arepas and patacones. The first was with professional colleagues across the US and this time was for my teenage daughter's birthday along with 3 of her friends. It's a fun, fast paced cooking experience where we learned a little of Columbian food and culture and were able to enjoy a tasty meal as a result.

Delicious food!! This class was so fun and yielded some amazing food! I highly recommend it if you’re like me and love empanadas. I could eat beef filling alone it was so good!!! Thank you again!

Such an amazing and fun birthday party idea where we could all be in our separate kitchens while learning to cook a new type of food “together”! It was nice feeling connected through food and experience, plus in the end... a delicious meal!

I was impressed by the organization and flow of the course. Teaching people with varying experiences, live online is really challenging but Tiffany and Jose handled it perfectly!

This was amazing. We did a private group lesson as a team building exercise and Tiffany and Jose were lovely hosts. I highly recommend the experience. They were so thoughtful in their directions and the way they checked in with every participant to make sure they were at the right point in the recipe. I had never taken a virtual cooking experience and wasn't sure what to expect but am excited to do it again!

This was such a fun experience! I've been wanting to learn to cook empanadas for the longest time and this was such a good way to do it. Jose made sure that everyone was doing okay and helped you if there was something wrong with your dough or anything else. It was so helpful to have that so I know how to do it in the future on my own! The experience was really fun and informative (I definitely feel confident that I can go try this on my own now) and the final product was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend.
