    What to Expect
    Las Cobadas is a huge market located in northern Bogotá that sells everything a Colombian family uses to cook on a daily basis including meat, fish, grains and other typical ingredients. Explore the market with Camilo and Jose and learn about the country’s incredible diversity of products. As you wander the market you will get to taste exotic fruits, drink a special Colombian coffee and sample local traditional food.

    After your market tour, Camila and Jose will host you at a professional kitchen in a food production center - a small, cozy space that is brightly decorated. Using traditional techniques and regional ingredients, Camilo puts a modern twist on classic Colombian dishes. Camilo shops daily at the local market to ensure that he uses the freshest ingredients at the peak of ripeness. A possible meal could begin with a Colombian starter before you’ll enjoy a main dish such as posta negra (tender stewed beef, Colombian-style), mote (typical sweet potato and cheese soup), fried costeño cheese, ensalada con aguacate (salad with avocado) and end the experience with a mouthwatering dessert. Please note that the menu varies every day based on the season and ingredient availability. This is a great opportunity to learn from professional locals who are passionate about introducing their cuisine and culture to their guests!
