OTHER TOURS AND CLASSES
Preparation of typical Costa Rican dishes: an old clay pot that collects fresh water from the stone filter will indicate that you arrived at “La Fonda”, a small ranch filled with a warm environment, a true and vivid presentation of the Guanacaste being; where you will know and taste the traditional Guanacaste food. Authentic gastronomy prepared with local and organic products make it truly special. Here cooking classes are given.
• Corn based products: learn how to make the best recipes with corn that has been harvested in the farm and worked in the clay oven. Tortillas, rosquillas, tanelas, turnovers (empanadas), homemade bread, among others will part of the goods you can make. While the corn tortillas are made in the comal heated in the clay oven, so they can be eaten with junkets (cuajadas) or cheese of the farm, you can learn how to brew Costa Rican coffee with the style that only Costa Ricans know. If you prefer, ask for our traditional Agua Dulce, prepared with the raw sugar from the communities’ presses.
