We had such a fun time doing this! We got to learn a little about our hosts and their lives as they opened up their kitchen and restaurant to us! We learned some history of Argentina, facts about empanadas, and had an overall good time! We also got to visit a part of town that we wouldn't have otherwise. Go hungry, 'cuz we were sooo full when we left!! We got to take a few home for breakfast the following morning! Yum!!

The night was amazing- they were both very accommodating with us travelling with our children. We all felt welcome and taken care of. We learnt so much about food and customs. We loved that they joined us to eat the fruits of our labour at the end. I would for sure recommend this to anyone visiting Medellin!
