What a wonderful experience! Our guide took us to a local market and explained some local ingredients then we drove to the cooking school where we toured the beautiful grounds which include a large garden and chickens. The guide explained what they grew there and how each ingredient is used. We made and ate 4 dishes including dessert and all were delicious! Highly recommend Grandma’s Cooking School!
