Our gastronomical and cultural tours through the Kichwa community of Panecillo combine tastings of authentic Otavalan food and sacred “chicha” corn drink, with the best presentation of Andean cultural music. We create a “non-tourist” experience that is truly a glimpse into the daily life of our culture.
There is always something new to be discovered in the gastronomical tours of Otavalan flavors. Our walking culinary excursions are perfect for all ages and levels of physical prowess, inclusive for all to partake in this novel, unique, and memorable experience.
We select each tasting stop of our tour carefully, taking into account the quality of food preparation, history of the space, passion of the chefs, excellence of taste, and community importance. You will get to know the people that are behind each plate, learning their histories and the secrets that make their food delicious. Join the unique experience of touring Otavalo’s flavors!
A wide variety of products are used in the preparation of our community’s wonderful and nutritious soups: quinoa, corn, barley, a diverse variety of potatoes, squash, and much more.
