A unique regional cuisine is on the menu in this magical date night culinary experience.
Chef Gustavo shares his expertise in Ibero-American fusion cuisine in this hands-on course, perfect for a romantic evening in the kitchen! You’ll prepare shrimp with garlic, parsley and dried chile de árbol as you master the art of sautéeing. Then, you’ll craft a green plantain cake and learn to filet a fish like a professional to create filets wrapped in banana leaves and guajillo paste. And your date night enchantment concludes on a sweet note with a decadent dessert of coconut creme caramel.
I booked Fusion Date Night with Chef Gustavo for my fiance's birthday - and what an incredible experience!! Chef Gustavo is a true professional, who has years of culinary experience. He taught us many techniques and the food was absolutely delicious (I'm still dreaming about the salmon!). For dessert, we made crepes, with apples and dulce de leche, and had a blast learning to pan flip them. This is a wonderful experience that anyone would enjoy. Highly recommend. We will be booking another class soon :)
