Quito Cooking Class

This Quito cooking class lets you take a delicious and enriching class of the traditional Ecuadorian cuisine. After a welcome drink, we head to the market in the historic center with a local chef and select ingredients for three typical regional dishes: Locro Quiteño, Encocado and chocolate soup. You will learn the history of each dish as you peel, cut, season and mix. Afterward, we enjoy the fruit of your labor on the host’s lovely patio.
