Learn to make mouth-watering Caribbean delicacies like coconut fish and drunken stew on this unmissable cooking class in Punta Cana - you'll feel like a true Dominican chef!
Dominican Cooking Class in Punta Cana
On the day of your cooking class, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Punta Cana and head to a special kitchen located in the east of the Dominican Republic. While we get ready to cook, you'll be served two drinks to kick off the evening in style. Choose from mamajuana, beer, rum, white wine, mojito or cuba libre! There will also be bottles of mineral water available.
Kitted out in our aprons, we'll begin the cooking class following the instructions of our expert multilingual guide to prepare our chosen recipe. At the end of the practical class, we'll be able to taste the fruits of our labour and judge our cooking skills for ourselves, trying the dishes we've prepared. Afterwards, you'll be taken back to your hotel in Punta Cana.
What will we make?
Depending on the day you choose to enjoy the cooking class, you'll prepare a different recipe: you'll make coconut fish on Tuesdays and "sancocho borraco" or drunken stew, on Wednesdays. Both are staples of Dominican cuisine!
Tuesday: Coconut fish
Coconut fish is one of the most popular recipes in the Dominican Republic and it's incredibly simple: all you need is a good fresh whole fish (preferably snapper or grouper), salt, crushed garlic, a few teaspoons of coconut milk and, above all, a lot of love! The final result is a tasty dish that will delight your tastebuds.
Wednesday: "Sancocho borracho"
Sancocho is another of the most typical dishes of the Caribbean. This hearty stew is prepared with different meats and local root vegetables, and we're going to make it "borracho", or "drunken style"! We'll cook the ingredients up with a few cups of rum or another alcohol drink that we like - delicious!
