Our journey begins at the 7 de Agosto Plaza Market, where Diana Pizano, a biologist and farm-to-table chef, who is passionate about the Colombian agricultural heritage, will guide you through the plaza. There you will have the chance to taste different agricultural products, fruits, vegetables and seeds all of them exclusive of the Colombian tropical landscape, such as maize, rice, tubers such as potatoes, cassava and cubios, or delicious fruits like mango, granadilla, mangostino, feijoa, dragon fruit, passion fruit, chontaduro, papaya, guava, lulo, cape gooseberry and many more. You will also find various artifacts, flowers, plants, crafts and especially friendly merchants and farmers willing to help you select the freshest and healthy products for you to take to our second stop. The recommendations from Diana will allow you to acquire the essential ingredients that are in harvest to bring the best of the farm to our table.

After leaving the Plaza Market, we will go to Rosales, a northern neighborhood, where you will enjoy close the beautiful landscape of the eastern hills of Bogota. There, you will see Diana's place, where the Comiendo Cuento project currently takes place, an initiative that returns to the traditional custom of enjoying good company and delicious home-cooked food at the same time.
