Awesome family experience
Manish P, 04-09-2022
Thank you Chela, Julieta & Francela! We had so much fun learning to cook a typical Costa Rican dinner at your home. The experience was filled with laughter and music as you gave us all duties in the kitchen and put us to work! You taught me a valuable lesson where I was always hesitant to let my 9 year old cut food, you reminded me that trial and error is how they learn. Thank you Chela and your family for making our time a memorable one!
I will never forget this experience

Without a doubt the most amazing experience we had in Costa Rica.
You cook with the most caring and patient ;-) team. They teached us a typical Costa Rican dish, we got to know different ways of preparing things, new ingredients, ways of cooking ... The best thing is you get to taste what you cooked. Really amazing experience.

Book it! It's so worth it!
Best cooking class in La Fortuna

This cooking class was a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The cook guided us through how to make a typical Costa Rican dish. It was a private class. We made tortillas, rice, beans, veggies, chicken, fried plantain, etc. She even shared the exact recipes with us afterwards! We had wonderful conversation while we were cooking and eating. We drank wine, listened to Spanish music, and she took lots of videos and pictures the whole time without us even asking! We can tell she is very passionate about cooking and most importantly about her community. She is a wonderful woman and small business owner. She along with family and friends built this place themselves and grow their own food. She is an amazing person. Please support this business!!
Cooking with Chela

The experience was a highlight of our Costa Rican holiday. Chela and her staff are very friendly, unpretentious and taught us a lot more than cooking. We learnt to cook a traditional Costa Rican meal from scratch - from harvesting vegetables and herbs from her garden to rolling out tortillas. Chela shared her life story which is very inspiring.
Although a bit of a drive from La Fortuna, we highly recommend this activity that most tourists are unaware of
Fantastic experience. BOOK THIS NOW!

Book this! A great cooking class and experience with patient local hosts. Everything was very clean and well prepared. Food was fantastic and we really liked how all members of our family (parents with teenagers) got involved. The whole experience exceeded our expectations.
