Description

Your local host Catalina offers a hands-on cooking experience in her small but functional kitchen that has a bar and open window area perfect for demonstrations. The cooking portion of the experience will last for about two hours, and you will learn to make an appetizer, a main dish and a dessert! A few traditional Colombian 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 culinary experience with a welcoming local, and get a taste of true Colombian culture and cuisine!

Please note: Catalina can offer Vegetarian and Vegan meals upon request. 

You will be welcomed by Catalina with fresh guandiolo (fruit juice sweetened with cane juice) at her balcony to enjoy the view of the mountains. Catalina lives on the 5th floor of a modern apartment in the city of Medellin, only a few metro stops from the city center. The neighborhood is a mix of old homes and newer apartment buildings. 

Catalina’s family heritage is from three different areas of Colombia and includes coastal and Andean food. She mixes her graphic design background with her passion for food and creates an experience combined with the history of the people involved. She also loves to serve food you can experience by picking it up with your hands, so you can truly engage with what you are eating. 

Please note: You need to climb five flight of stairs to reach Catalina's apartment.
