Take home the rich culture of Guatemala by learning how to prepare the local cuisine! Guatemalan cuisine is an exotic mixture of traditional colonial Spanish and local Mayan cooking that is both delicious and fun to prepare. Classes are small, private, and hands-on with our native Guatemalan Chefs Leivi and Felisa, both natives of Sacatepequez who have specialized in the regional cuisine handed down from mother to daughter. Frijol Feliz offers cooking classes, a sauces class, and culinary tours. Learn how to prepare the dishes in our kitchen and then enjoy your meal in either our beautiful dining room or patio.
Please note that most Guatemalan dishes revolve around a variety of delicious sauces; therefore, most dishes that contain meat can easily be to tailored to your needs by substituting it for fish, tofu, or more vegetables.
