Due to extremely limited supply and high demand for this activity, it is currently only available to clients traveling through Havana VIP. We are working hard to add more capacity. Please check back with us if you can.
We’ve been providing this service for our clients on a limited-trial basis, and it’s worked-out so well that we’re now ready to offer it regularly! An English-speaking expert in Cuban cooking takes you to buy the ingredients, then teaches you how to cook authentic Cuban cuisine.
This half-day adventure in Cuban daily living and cooking begins first thing in the morning when our expert cook, meets you at your lodgings and takes you to an Agro-Mercado, the fruit, vegetable, and meat markets where Cuban people purchase their food. At the Agro, the first thing you’ll do is convert your money from CUC to CUP, the national currency the Cuban people use for their daily needs known as Moneda Nacional. Then, you’ll tour the Agro to see what ingredients are available, and plan your meal. Then you’ll purchase the ingredients, go home, and start cooking!
This 4-5 hour adventure is a great way to get a glimpse of daily Cuban life, as well as to broaden your culinary skills.[Note: The costs for the food and ingredients is not included and will be paid by you out-of-pocket.]
