At Cuscun we don’t just cook. We provide authentic experiences.
Guatemalan Cooking Class with a Market Tour starts in the morning or in the afternoon with a visit of the local market in Antigua. Your host Joaquin will take you through the outside and inside market area where you will learn all about Guatemalan fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices while purchasing fresh products directly from local growers to use in your cooking class.
Alongside our chef Carolina and sous chef Iris you will prepare a typical Guatemalan food. You will have the option to choose from different well-known Guatemalan dishes, such as Pepián, Jocón, Kak'ik, Subanik, Tamales, Chiles Rellenos and typical Guatemalan desserts. All the dishes can also be vegetarian. Once we are done with cooking, we will taste your dishes either on our rooftop terrace with a spectacular view of the volcano Agua or in a colonial indoor dining room.
