Private Market Tour and Cooking Class in Bogota with a Local

Gerardo will pick you up from your Bogota hotel and take you to explore Plaza de Mercado de Paloquemao. Discover regional vegetables, fruits, meat and seafood at this central market and get a glimpse of locals' daily lives. Purchase a few ingredients for your meal and drive to Gerardo's home for your cooking class. Meet Gerardo's wife who shares his passion for cooking traditional recipes using fresh and seasonal produce to improve the taste and flavor of dishes. Join them in their small kitchen for a hands-on cooking class and learn to make two seasonal Colombian dishes such as arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) and ajiaco (chicken and potato soup). This is a great way to learn new kitchen tricks and watch a meal you helped prepare come together.

Enjoy a meal with this couple that might include dishes such as bandeja paisa (a platter of rice, beans, chorizo, eggs) or arroz con pollo, sancocho (meat and root vegetable stew) or ajiaco along with catfish or steak as a main.
