• Teacher Bios:
Ben (Gourmet Gringo) spent more than 30 years in the restaurant industry. Starting at just 16 years old working in the kitchen of a luxury Muskoka resort in Northern Ontario, Canada, he found his love for food. While opening several successful restaurants in Canada and the southern US, Ben was invited to appear on many TV shows such as Good Morning Texas on WFAA, AZ Family TV’s morning show and the popular Breakfast Television in both Toronto and Vancouver to showcase his love for good food and educating audiences across North America. Ben now caters for small dinner parties and holds cooking classes in the main house at Tree of Life Cabinas, blending world fare with Latin flavors using the fresh products so readily available in Costa Rica. Nate is his recipe taster and dish washer.

Tree of Life Cabinas:
VERY easy to find! Turn at San Martin Sur (the road directly between the Jolly Roger and Villas Alturas roads) and follow up the mountain 2 kilometers. There are no additional turns. Tree of Life Cabinas will be on your left, and visible from the road. Look for the 4 bright blue buildings!
