If you have the time you shouldn't miss this. It starts with a visit to a local market to taste and buy ingredients for the meal that you will prepare. Then off to the kitchen to cook and then the table to eat. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished chef this is a special experience that will become one of those memories that will stay with you.
