About
You will join your host Ida in her large, open kitchen where she will teach you to make her version of seasonal Brazilian food. During your cooking experience you will learn to make 2-3 dishes. If the weather is good, you might cook on her brick churrasqueira (brick oven) in the backyard, situated next to the ocean!  Ida is a private chef and runs a small café in the beach town of Arembepe. She loves Brazil’s incredible edible diversity and is always eager to share her deep knowledge about local ingredients that are even unknown to many Brazilians. Ida can also prepare excellent vegan food, so just ask if you have a special dietary request. This is an incredible opportunity to learn about the country's cuisine from a local professional and get a glimpse - and a taste - of authentic Brazil!
