Experience the taste and flavors of Guatemala cooking


Are you looking to experience Guatemala in an authentic and personal way? Experience the taste and flavors of Guatemala cooking at the Santa Cruz Cooking Class. This class will help you understand how our Mayan culture and Spanish colonial influence blended together in a perfect harmony through food. You will have lots of hands-on fun learning how to cook up three authentic Guatemalan dishes during this 3-5 hour class. Learn how to prepare traditional recipes that are unique to Guatemala, and come away with all the skills you need to prepare them in your own kitchen.
Learn to cook authentic Guatemalan dishes like Pepian & Tamalitos with a fantastic view of Lake Atitlan.

All proceeds support the community of Santa Cruz La Laguna through the local nonprofit Amigos de Santa Cruz which runs education and economic empowerment programs (see amigosdesantacruz. org or Amigos de Santa Cruz Foundation on Facebook for more information). Classes are taught by Claudia, a local graduate of Amigos' culinary program.

Itinerary

Class starts at 10:00am. The cooking class/lesson is around 2 hours in duration. Each recipe is discussed so you understand each ingredient and how it is used.
