Cooking Experience in Casco Viejo
You will be picked up at your hotel for a short walk through Casco Viejo, Panama City’s colonial neighborhood, to the cooking class venue. Your charming local chef will host you in her cooking studio, where you will learn about Panama and its traditional cuisine while preparing delicious dishes that you will get to enjoy at the end of the class. The menu varies constantly to include the seasonal fruits and vegetables perfect for the 3-course meal you will be preparing. During this 3-hour hands-on cooking experience, you will be immersed in authentic Panamanian cuisine and learn how to prepare traditional recipes and dishes just as your local chef’s grandma has been taught, for example, empanadas, ceviche, carimañolas, tamales, arroz con pollo, pescado al escabeche, coconut rice, saltfish fritters, curry seafood, stewed chicken/pork/beef, sweet plantains, coconut sweets, flan, and mamallena, among others! After enjoying the food you have just prepared, take a stroll back to your hotel in Casco Viejo, accompanied by your local chef.
