Cooking and eating food is a way of expressing the deepest human values, such as love, care, and respect for others.

"The supermarket trip was very informative and Chef Flavio extremely knowledgeable about all the ingredients. It was brilliant fun to get hands on with the cooking and the food was amazing."

Vicky M (read review here)

"Erica was brilliant, showing us and explaining about different Brazilian foods in the market. We enjoyed learning more about not only the food of the country but also getting an insight in Brazilian culture. Making our own caipirinhas with optional variations, having the choice between cooking steak or fish stew was brilliant, we chose the steak as we had the moqueca the day before. We left very happy with lots of new recipes and full tummies. A great way to spend an afternoon, we would highly recommend this."

Annelize L (read review here)

"This was a great time! Chef Alex and Vania were terrific! If you come to Brazil you MUST do this tour. Plenty of fun and plenty of instructions from the two of them."

Food is the door to other cultures. It's the most intimate way we connect with others and the world around us.
