Three different hands-on encounters with Ecuadorian gastronomy have been developed to provide our guests with unique and memorable experiences to discover the scents and flavors of Ecuador’s diversity.
Exclusive programs have been designed for guests with a passion for cooking, interested in participating in all the processes, with demonstrations and cooking classes; for guests who fancy gourmet meals prepared by the best chefs with local delicacies or enjoy tastings of one-of-a-kind Ecuadorian wines, offering new levels of experience to everyone from the novice to the sommelier.
More than a simple cooking class, “A traditional Ecuadorian meal from start to Finish” is a “hands-on” culinary experience. Participants visit colorful markets in Quito to buy fresh produce before heading to a well appointed kitchen, where they prepare and enjoy a delicious, traditional lunch under the watchful eye of an experienced master chef.
The one-day “An Ecuadorian Wine Tour” takes guests to Chaupi Estancia, for a full tour and tasting of their award-winning wines. Guests are then taken to the highly regarded countryside Restaurant La Marmite, to enjoy a traditional meal especially prepared with the finest local ingredients. Following lunch, guests will visit the Pakakuna Gardens, home to a dazzling variety of plants, including orchids and hummingbirds.
A combination of Quito city tour with visits to some of the city’s finest restaurants, the “Ecuadorian Gourmet Cuisine” is perfect for those who want to sample the best in local food while still getting to see the sights. The morning is dedicated to a Quito tour, followed by lunch at Hotel Plaza Grande, the city’s most exclusive hotel and restaurant. Time to relax after lunch, and then pick-up for dinner, a great gastronomic experience with a tasting menu in one of Quito’s top-notch restaurants.
