Little Eko Chefs
Little Eko Chefs, held every weekday in the resort's Eko Kids Club, will be a first-of-its-kind program, incorporating historical and cultural facts, eco-friendly food basics, and hands-on cooking opportunities.
Classes will build upon Generations Riviera Maya's existing commitment to delivering unforgettable culinary, environmental, and authentic experiences as a part of its Gourment Inclusive® vacations for the entire family. Many of the ingredients used for Little Eko Chefs will be sourced locally, including from Karisma's 75,000 squere foot Greenhouse located just a few steps away from the resort.
Children will also have the opportunity to tour the Greenhouse and hand-select items to cook with. All Little Eko Chefs participants will be awarded a special certificate after completing the class - offering them a personal memento of their vacations and testament to their new gastronomic skills!
