Description

Join your host Patty in her kitchen and learn to prepare a traditional Chilean meal. Patty can offer you a demonstration or teach you in a hands-on lesson – just let her know your preference! She will teach you to make dishes that she and her family love, using fresh produce from her garden. Typical dishes could be pastel de choclo (a casserole similar to shepherd’s pie made with corn and chicken), chupe de mariscos (seafood stew), or cazuela (a typical Chilean soup).

You will learn to make 1-2 traditional Chilean dishes before sitting down for the meal. As you cook together Patty will tell you about the ingredients she uses and about growing up in the kitchen with her mother and grandmother. Don't miss out on this wonderful experience to get a glimpse in a Chilean home and kitchen and learn about their culture and cuisine from a local!

Patty and her husband Enrique live in a gorgeous, sprawling ranch-style home near Lampa, outside of Santiago in the country. Her property boasts fruit and nut trees of every variety (from mandarin to fig, pomegranate to walnut) and a huge vegetable and herb garden. You will be welcomed with open arms and a bottle of Carménere into a house that is both modern and filled with old-world charm. The tall ceilings, gilded paintings, and Victorian furniture are magnificent, but the wood stove, inviting earth-tones, and greenery give the place a feeling of warmth alongside the luxury. The kitchen is large and modern, with an island that allows everyone to congregate easily and without hindering the cooking process, and the shelves are heaped with the produce collected from Patty’s garden. 

This is a unique opportunity to experience authentic Chile and taste some delicious cuisine in a local home!
