  • The Lowdown

    Cartagena Cooking Class

    Under the expert tutelage of an international chef and a team of strong-willed Caribbean women, you’ll be cooking, tasting, feeling (and even singing) the restaurant’s unique approach to local cooking, which artfully combines fresh local produce and ‘grandmother recipes’ with a refined European spin.

    As well as making three delicious dishes from scratch, you’ll also pay homage to Colombia’s fabulous fruit culture by making a tropical fruit juice or mojito.

    This is a truly diverse cooking class which chops and changes in line with the season. It can be adapted to everyone’s tastes, including vegetarians and celiacs.  All participants will also get to take away a printed summary of all the recipes made in class.

    TIC organizado una clase de cocina para mi esposa y yo son las de cantar Bistro La la y fue increíble. El equipo de marido y mujer unen ingredientes chef francés y colombiano y técnicas para un antiguo realmente increíble experiencia en manos de cocina (y luego). La yuca gnocchi era una de las preferidas de la mía :). Muchas gracias a Clementyne y el equipo del TIC para poner juntos, recomiendo este curso a fanaticos y no fanaticos por igual.
