Cooking Lessons in Costa Rica

Cooking Lessons in Costa Rica


Tuesday we stayed in San Isidro. We did an optional hike above San Isidro again, then met at the school for a cooking lesson.

We made Arroz con Pollo, or rice with chicken. This is practically the national dish of Costa Rica. While Gallo Pinto (beans and rice) is more common in daily life, you'd be hard pressed to find a Fiesta or gathering without Arroz con Pollo.

We also hand made tortillas and prepared a salad.

Finally we sat down to feast on the fruits of our labor

We had a little down time before classes started, so kids hung out, played soccer or frisbee, or made quick runs to the candy store. This week, we have classes all 5 days, so the length of the classes has shortened from 3 hours to 2 (we only had 3 days with classes last week because of the trip to Tortugera.). It's good that they have as the kids can get a bit restless in the classes! And finally, back home to our families for the evening.
