Cook with ILLA Experience Hotel
Mon October 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
There is a new restaurant at the leading boutique hotel in Ecuador: ILLA Experience Hotel in Quito!
Gather your ingredients and join us for a special cooking class with Chef Juan Carlos Donso.
Gastronomic culture in Ecuador is a blend of many regions, ingredients, and histories. Grains, fruits, and vegetables have been exchanged between the Amazon, the Andes, and the coast since Pre-Columbian times. These ancient ingredients and traditions later mixed with Spanish cuisine. The result is a colorful mix of delicious food! From encocado de camarones (a coconut and shrimp stew) to hornado (roast pork served with potato tortillas and avocado) Ecuadorian cuisine has something to fit everyone’s taste.
Don’t feel like cooking? That’s okay! Join us as a spectator to meet the chef and to learn about the new social project at the hotel called “THE NEST.”
