What you'll do

I'll receive you in my inviting house, where you will learn how to prepare some of the most delicious and traditional Cuban recipes, such as the famous "Ropa Vieja", "Pork Fricassee" or "Traditional Chicken", inherited from the Spanish traditional cuisine and served with a delicious homemade sauce. I also have good food for vegans and vegetarians. Our traditions play a main role in Caribbean cuisine, so be ready for preparing a very traditional recipe. I will welcome you with a refreshing juice made of tropical fruit, and while we cook, you will taste a delicious fruit cocktail. The goal of this class is learning, but also to enjoy a good time, have fun, and eat a tasteful lunch or dinner. The food will be accompanied by dessert, and by a smoky and strong Cuban coffee.

Raquel

I'm Raquel, a typical Cuban housewife that loves cooking. I'm a retired chemist. For 40 years I worked in food industry laboratories, in the field of quality control. Besides my forever passion for cooking, my profession has helped me to select the best combination of flavors to impress the most demanding of palates. For generations, traditional recipes have been part of my family culture. My friend Laura and I feel really fortunate to have you discover our cuisine secrets. We love to make new friends and to have you feel at home.
