Skill level:


The Carnival of Taste is a vibrant and exciting cooking workshop that celebrates the authenticity and flavour of South American cuisine. We hope to be able to do this fantastic continent justice highlighting its incredible culture and history of food. From Brazilian feijoada, Argentine asado, Peruvian ceviche, to Colombian arepas.

Workshop Roadmap

·        Feijoada – Feijao translating simply as black bean is a rich stew made predominately from the unused parts of the pig i.e. feet, ears, as well as other smoked meats for that depth of flavour.

·        Ceviche – A dish served at the Fiestas Patrias this summer dish has all the vibrance of Peru itself.

·        Asado chicken – A dish originating from the Gauchos, asado traditionally cooked with beef is a tremendous feat of cooking.

·        Corocao de frango – These little offal bites are truly amazing, cooked right and they will pack such incredible flavour.

All the session’s recipes are provided for you to take home to add to your personal repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again.
