More than exceeded my expectations!
From the initial warm welcome to the final goodbye, it couldn’t have been better. A group of 13 strangers coming together to produce incredible meals under the skillful hands of Chef Paola. Casa Ombuto is beautiful and peaceful. It is remote and, although we hadn’t wanted to rent a car (there are other options), we did and were glad we did. We had a “day off”, which we used to see more of the countryside. When I received the schedule for the week, I was disappointed that there were only 4 cooking days. But during those
4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hour intense cooking sessions, you work hard and having a day off was appreciated! Food allergies are taken into consideration and we learned to work around some of the more common ones. The produce and meats/fish products were locally sourced and incredibly fresh. The skill level of the individual attendees varied from novice to fairly skilled. Chef Paola worked with everyone at their own level, thus improving one’s confidence and abilities. And the food!!! The food we prepared was then served to us, very formally, like we were special guests. It was just an overall wonderful experience. I may go again! I highly recommend it without reservation!
