English chef and TV personality Jamie Oliver traveled to Costa Rica this week to get a taste of a casado and try his hand at making tortillas.

Oliver posted a handful of pictures to his Facebook page Monday showing the healthy-eating enthusiast sweating over a fire in a rural kitchen with a local cook enjoying an “honest simple delicious” meal:

I’m Learning from the Costa Rican mumma’s !!:):) ❤ we had a really yummy lunch today. honest simple and delicious food, cooked on open wood fires by this smiley loverly lady …. Chicken and meat stews, corn rice, black beans, rice, cabbage salad, quarter of an avocado, tortillas, special chilli onion vinegar and ice cold tamarin water all enjoyed while all the local men watched foot ball good times.

Oliver’s visit is right in line with the government’s hope to make Costa Rica a foodie destination. In March, Vice President Ana Helena Chacón signed a decree to promote the country’s cuisine as part of its tourism offerings.

The Englishman might be enjoying the food but he’s not handling the heat well: “I’m having a good time here very hot for an Essex boy though.”
