Meet your guide, who will provide an all-access culinary pass to the city and head out to a market to see fresh fruits and vegetables. Then, visit one of the oldest bakeries in Quito and then learn how quesadillas are made before sampling the final product straight from the pan.

    Next, navigate the back streets to southern Quito where you’ll get up close with iconic architecture on your way to a local Quito home for a chance to test your skills in the kitchen. Roll up your sleeves and learn how to make tamales and empanadas under the direction of an expert chef.
