simone almeida brazilian cooking chef in rio de janeiro

Simone is the quintessential Brazilian!

All chefs are crazy. Anyone with a lucid mind wouldn’t spend all day in a hot kitchen dealing with demanding clients, moody waiters, reviewers and tight deadlines.

What makes Simone different is that she is side-bustingly funny!  Students burst caipirinhas while cracking up to one of her jokes. What`s more, she is the quintessential Carioca. Fun, smart, savvy, friendly and slick (malandra)!

She is also a master at group-dynamics, where she can make strangers into friends within an hour.

Her cooking class should be scheduled for your first day in Rio.

What you will learn about Rio culture, about Cariocas and about exploring Rio will illuminate the rest of your trip with a brighter light, maybe even X-ray vision. You`ll go from a visiting tourist to a sociologist, and that`s way more fun.

So book a class with us for your first day in Rio. We`ve never been asked for a refund due to even an “average” experience in her class, so we are extremely happy to offer refunds. We’ve had people (whom we had to reschedule due to last minute “life” problems in Simone`s schedule) ask for a refund, which of course we honor, as it is only fair.

Go ahead, you won`t regret it.

– Cristiano Nogueira, co-founder of Cook in Rio

P.S. You`ll learn lots, plus your first meal will be amazing, not just because of the Brazilian flavors, but because you made it.
