The best way to experience a city is through exploring its cuisine, and on this hands-on Chilean cooking class, that’s exactly what you’ll do! On this culinary adventure lasting 5 hours, you’ll cook authentic Chilean dishes in an informal and friendly environment where you will learn all about the passion of Chilean cuisine and have fun doing it. All cooking classes are hands-on, using the freshest local ingredients available.

You will start in the morning, the best time to visit the Mercado Central, Santiago’s celebrated fresh fish market which was listed by National Geographic as one of the Top 10 Food Markets in the world. You will then continue with your Local Guide to La Vega, the popular fruit and vegetable market, which is the perfect place to discover new flavors.
After the markets, you will arrive (via cab, included in the price) at the beautiful kitchen where the class will begin. The local chef will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious Chilean recipes and reveal some of his culinary secrets. His knowledge of not only the cuisine but the culture of the region adds an energetic dimension to the class. After the hands-on cooking class, you will enjoy a feast of Chilean dishes complemented by excellent Chilean wines.

Very amazing experience. The chef is very professional and knowledgeable and patient. I never thought that I could make dishes that look so fancy and tasty. It just made my day. I will definitely recommend my friends to try out this activity if they visit Chile in the future!

I was born in the South of Chile, in a city called Curicó; it’s in Chile's Maule Region, an area known for its wineries. My family had a vineyard, and I grew up on it, so I was always into wine from an early age. I decided to study industrial engineering in Valparaíso, Chile and eventually started working as an engineer for 10 years in the packaging industry. One day I decided to finally quit my very stressful job and follow my passion for wine and food. I come from a family of Spanish immigrants, so in our home, sharing wine and food with family and friends was always important. My wife is from Mendoza, Argentina,and her family were Italian immigrants, so for us, everything has always been about good food and wine. We realized that most people who love wine also love food, so we wanted to offer visitors to Chile a way to learn about its amazing cuisine and wine in a more hands-on way. We truly are a family business, and we love receiving people from all around the globe. When you have conversations over wine and great food with travelers, you always end up learning something new.
