    From the pickup/drop off in a TukTuk and the whole cooking lesson, this is a must-do activity. The staff are very friendly and explain all the history and background to Guatemalan cooking, Mayan roots, and so much more. The rooftop shared dining experience to chat and meet others was unparalleled. Highly recommended!

    I was picked up on time at the home where I was staying and taken directly to the home of the cooking instructors. The kitchen was on the roof of their house. There was a carafe of nice wine waiting for us to sip while we cooked. We made 5 traditional Guatemalan dishes…two different stews, tortillas, an appetizer and desert. There was also rice. We are our fill with lots left over. It was delicious. I highly recommend this experIence.
    Good food, good people

    This was the highlight of my trip. Learned to make dobladas, pepián de pollo and rellenitos de plantain. Guatemalan food isn't prevalent in Antiguan restaurants for some strange reason, so I was happy to have this experience with a great group of people and engaging hosts. It's a food tour, but the drinks were also flowing :) 10/10!

    If you love great food and like to explore local life, you need to take this class. We were shown how to make local dishes and desserts in easy steps and had great fun and company doing it. We will be cooking these dishes at home. A taste explosion for your senses. We highly recommend it!
