Such an amazing experience. We really enjoyed cooking with omar and our translator (which name I forgot - Sorry for that). We learned a t lot and the food was sooo delicious. All was well prepared and we also learned a lot about the colombian culture. The kitchen is on the Rooftop with an amazing view. We also got a typical colombian drink, dessert and a little surprise. What I also really liked about this experience is that by booking this experience there will be done a donation. Would definitely attend this course again.
