Durante esta experiencia, podrá visitar hasta 3 familias, quienes abrirán sus puertas con gusto y con nuestra emblemática sonrisa tica. Con sus propias manos cosechará algunas de las verduras que nuestro chef utilizará para preparar una cena mágica para usted y su familia. El menú será totalmente personalizado según sus preferencias y los productos frescos cosechados por la mañana.
