We can be there for a single meal, the entirety of your stay or anything in between!

Working together made simple

In Chef Gerson's words..

1 - We get in touch to understand what you're looking for (desired experience, dates, location, ...) by email or directly through WhatsApp (very popular in CR)2 - We start building the menu together (don't worry, we guide you through the process & adjustments can be made at any time) and we confirm some simple info (kitchen details, available utensils, ...)3 - We confirm that we will be doing this together through a formal agreement (contract and security deposit) so you can feel confident and relaxed.4 - We see you on the (first) day of and have you enjoy great local gourmet food and share a special Costa Rican experience. (all the while we take care of everything - cook, serve, collect, clean and order the workspaces)5 - We all leave we fond memories of this experience and of each other (and potentially great pictures!)AS SIMPLE AS THAT - PURA VIDA

Come enjoy some of our team's specialties...

We hope to see you soon!
