Traditional Cooking and Oxcart Farming with Cristina
This will be quite a treat! Depending on the day Cristina will teach you to make some of Guanacaste's most traditional dishes. This could include anything from sopa de gallina (traditional chicken soup), sopa de al bondiga (corn and meatball soup), tamales, arroz de maiz (corn rice), a traditional casado (plate dish), picadillo de chayote (chopped squash), cuajada (milk curd/cheese), tortillas or more! You will go through the process of learning some of her favorite dishes and cooking them on a wooden stove or the traditional wooden oven. After a delicious meal and lesson Cristina will demonstrate the traditional Oxcart farming technique, famous in Costa Rica. She will also take you around the remainder of her farm of chickens, seasonal vegetables, and even her tilapia!
