Cooking workshop with Chef Maria and her team

In the workshop, attendees will spend an amazing time as they roll up their sleeves, put on aprons, and unleash the Chef inside them!

María is the executive chef and founder of Caffé Lunático, a renowned restaurant situated in the coolest neighborhood of Cartagena, Getsemaní. She has studied and developed her culinary career in Spain, working in several Michelin Star Restaurants in the Basque Country and Catalonia. Her Spanish heritage, with a Grandma hailing from Spain, led her to recognize familiar aromas and flavors reminiscent of her Grandma’s kitchen.

After a decade of experience in Spain, María made the decision to return to Colombia and opened Caffé Lunático with the intention of blending flavors from both Colombian and Spanish cuisines.

Now, María has embarked on a new adventure, collaborating with other chefs to deliver a variety of cooking workshops.
