Enjoy a Locally Sourced Organic Meal in a Relaxing Home in Rural Pucón

Summary

This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Carolina’s cooking style is a modern twist on classic Chilean cuisine and is informed seasonally by what is currently growing in her garden. Your unique dining experience might begin with an appetizer such as Carolina's homemade bread with chancho en piedra (typical Chilean salsa) or caramelized native mushrooms called changle, followed by plum-stuffed chicken, which was raised by an organic producer, roast potatoes from Carolina’s garden, savory stews or soups made with beans or lentils, omelets with chard, potato or zucchini gratin. Assorted greens and edible flowers cultivated in their own garden make fresh, verdant salads. For dessert, she might serve mote con huesillos (a typical summer drink made with stewed dried peaches and a South American grain called mote) or a French tarte made with fresh seasonal fruit from Carolina’s garden, perhaps apples, plums, quince or raspberries.

Why take this tour?

Enjoy a seasonal Chilean meal in rural Pucón with your host Carolina and her family. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Carolina is originally from Temuco in Southern Chile, where she was raised among the plants, fruits and vegetables her family cultivated in their enormous garden. Carolina inherited her love of cooking from the women in her family. After successful, fast-paced careers in London, Carolina (a journalist) and her husband Alain (a financial engineer from France) decided to move to Pucón to open their B&B. Their property includes a beautiful garden, bee hives, play areas for their children, a pool, and a stunning view of Villarrica, a beautiful active volcano. Carolina grows many of the fruits and vegetables you will enjoy on her property, so her cooking is fresh, organic and seasonal. Carolina and Alain love to share their lives with their guests, so relax and enjoy the pleasures of a home-style meal at their table.
