About the tour

Are you a serious foodie, or just curious about Latin American gastronomy? If the answer is Yes, this delicious experience is for you! Cooking is an art-form that involves more than choosing the finest local produce; the best includes the flavor, history, and culture of a people. For this series of gastronomical tours, I invite you to visit innovative restaurants, private kitchens, and out-of-the-way food markets for an up-close look at Colombian cooks doing great and yummy work. As we say in Colombia, "¡Barriga llena, corazón contento!" ("Full belly, happy heart!").

A great variety of flavours are freshly prepared with fresh produce and earthy ingredients. Never far from the area where it is growing, farm to table, by women dedicated to healthy eating.

Such a delicious tour ... and my lunch hour falls exactly at the same time as lunch in Colombia! This always happens ... Santi showed us all the ingredients for his super-savory typically Antioquian bandeja paisa at this wonderful restaurant, this time filled with vegetarian ingredients instead of the meat: beans, lentils and peas, corn arepas, a whole double-fried plantain covered with a creamy mushroom sauce, and accompanying salad. I'm sure I've left something out but I can't deny that I wished I were there to eat this meal fit for a king! Do not miss Santi's gastronomy tours but be prepared to be jealous lol! :)

I live for food, I must say, and so it was such a pleasure to see so many people cooking such marvellous, traditional, tasty (i assume!) and varied concoctions. Santi was great at creating a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere for everyone, and so when he sat down to eat at the end it was like we were all with him - except I looked up from my phone and there was no food in front of me! Oh well, I hit the kitchen and the cooker feeling hungry, inspired and happy. Thanks Santi!
