Hi! I am María, executive chef and founder of Caffé Lunático, a renowned petit restaurant in the coolest neighbourhood of Cartagena, Getsemaní! I have studied and developed my career in Spain. I have worked in several Michelin Star Restaurants in the Basque Country and Catalonia. Since my Grandma was Spanish my experience in that country made me recognize aromas and flavours which reminded me of my Grandma’s kitchen :) . After 10 years I decided to come back to Colombia and opened Caffé Lunático with the intention to mix flavours from both cuisines, Colombian and Spanish. Now, I have embarked in a new adventure delivering cooking workshops in a new space, Lunático Cooking Studio.
Sugarcane water, Water, Beer or wine with the meal.
The workshop will be done in a big space, with all the tools necessary to fully enjoy the gastronomic experience. The site has beautiful views of the wall and the San Felipe Castle.
