Our Costa Rican Contemporary Cuisine Tour in San Jose “Barrio Escalante”, will be an innovative experience of Costa Rican modern cuisine, where the chefs use their creativity to transform traditional recipes into contemporary culinary creations. Each dish is prepared with fresh products that are all sourced from ingredients grown within the country. Our Tico chefs or managers will explain to you the concept of each local dish, and which traditional recipe they used as inspiration to create their own signature dish. Their challenge is to preserve the local gastronomy but to apply modern cooking techniques to take each recipe to a higher level!
At all restaurants, coffee shops and cocktail rooms, you will be welcomed by the chef, manager or owner (or meet them at the end) as they explain to you what goes into preparing the signature dishes and drinks hand-crafted by each proprietor. Guide will translate when necessary. The restaurants for this tour were chosen due to their farm-to-table concept and innovation with traditional Costa Rican cuisine. You will consume mostly fresh, locally sourced organic greens and vegetables during the tour. The tour has several alcoholic drinks, so please advise if you will be drinking natural juice or non-alcoholic drinks instead.
