This tour is a part of the Urban Adventures Home Cooked series and aims to give you one of the richest travelling experiences you can ever have – the opportunity to enjoy a meal with a local family in their home.
Tomasz and Amaia speak English and Spanish well for great conversation about local life. The aim is for you to experience life exactly how it is. It will be no different to the Kolinski-Dones family having any of their local friends or relatives around. It’s a chance to hang out in the kitchen (customs and space willing) and chat about your life and their life, the affairs of the day that are impacting and bringing joy into their home, and to feel for a few hours just how the locals really live.
You’ll be met at the meeting point by Tomasz and Amaia and will no doubt swing by the market or shops on the way home to pick up some last minute ingredients.
On arrival and after the introductions, if you want to help out chopping up some of the produce, or you are particularly interested in the recipe behind this local meal then we invite you to participate as much or as little as you like. Amaia and Tomasz will be happy to show you the ropes! Just follow the family’s lead.
When the food is ready, you will all sit down together and share the meal prepared, enjoy the conversation, perhaps look at each other’s photographs, and maybe take some more together.
This experience is real. Our families come from all walks of life. Some are probably very similar to you and some are from poor or rural backgrounds. We encourage you to check out the photos here of the Kolinski-Dones family to make sure your expectations are correctly set about the family you will be sharing a meal with and where they live. The beauty is that everyone involved in our Home Cooked Series is a wonderful person who wants to meet travellers and share this experience with them.
