Meet Andrea

Andrea is a trained chef who loves to play with flavors and experiment with Chile’s bounty of fruits, vegetables and seafood. After culinary school she traveled around the world for a year on her own, spending her days taking cooking lessons and exploring restaurants at night. She loves to cook simple, fast dishes that highlight seasonal produce and the incredible variety of fresh seafood available, with her own special twists inspired by her travels.

Andrea lives in Las Condes and shares her home with her friendly English-speaking roommates. They will join you for the meal if they are home during your visit.

“There´s nothing I like more than to improvise in the kitchen, and there´s nowhere I feel more focused and inspired. I love simple, I love seasons, I love home cooked and most of all, I love sharing a meal with friends.”

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-6 guests) Enjoy a seasonal, satisfying meal at Andrea's table. She will introduce you to her version of Chilean cuisine using local ingredients in surprising, modern ways. Chilean cuisine traditionally has simple, hearty flavors which Andrea uses as a starting off point. She believes that the richness of Chilean cuisine lies in it's ingredients - the amazingly fresh fruits and vegetables, and the country's long coastline that provides a bounty of fresh seafood. Andrea's cooking brings together these elements in dishes like a warming butternut squash soup with leeks and ginger, fish, fresh baked bread, and desserts like crepes served with manjar, a sweet caramel sauce made from condensed milk, the Chilean version of dulce de leche.

Cooking experience: (1-3 guests) Learn to prepare an inventive, modern Chilean meal alongside Andrea in her kitchen. Together you will work to prepare several dishes that showcase seasonal produce, local Chilean ingredients, and are simple to reproduce at home. You can expect your cooking lesson to last about 2 hours before you sit down to eat.

Market visit: (1-3 guests) Meet Andrea at La Vega Market, Santiago’s biggest market. She’ll take you on a tour to visit some of her favorite vendors and special sections of the market, like the Peruvian section and Venezuelan section. La Vega is a busy and chaotic marketplace and Andrea will help you navigate it with ease. Once your shopping is complete you will drive to Andrea’s house in her car.

Andrea’s market tours are available on Saturdays only.

Notes: Andrea lives with roommates and they might be present during your experience.

Traveler reviews

Early on in our conversation, Andrea said that despite all of her career changes and different passions, “I always have to have some element of cooking in my life.” Her love for food and sharing it with others is contagious, and between her expert knowledge and warmth, she makes the perfect host. She’s easygoing, and loves experimenting in the kitchen, balancing the traditions she learned from her grandma with the professional skills she learned in culinary school and working in high class hotel kitchens.
While we cooked, we shared fresh baked bread, mango sours, and stories, and her patience and easygoing nature made for a fun, relaxed experience. She shared many pro tips that I found useful for better cooking in general, along with specific pointers on how to incorporate certain Chilean ingredients into food. The merkén and parmesan bread she made went perfectly with the ginger butternut squash soup we prepared, and the creamy chicken with spinach and bacon was the perfect fall comfort food. For dessert, we made manjar pancakes (more like crepes, but that’s how Chileans make pancakes), which were melt-in- your-mouth delicious, and I left with some great recipes and ideas for my own cooking adventures. For anyone wanting a fusion of traditional Chilean flavors and modern technique and influences, Andrea will be able to guide you flawlessly with fantastic results!

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    If you have a question about an experience, create a reservation and include your note in the field "Write a note to your host". Once you request a booking you can continue to message your host directly to ask any specific questions. You can always cancel your booking and receive a full refund as long as you cancel 48 hours in advance.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted per person prices unless otherwise specified. Transportation is typically charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person. Children aged 5-11 are 50% off, and infants aged 0-4 are free.

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
