Lima Gastronomy Tour 1/2D Overview
Local Market Tour – Exotic Fruit Tasting – Peruvian Cooking Class – Pisco Sour Class
Peruvian Cooking: This class is for people who love traditional foods and want to make it at home! Certainly, you’ll love the relaxed atmosphere with no dull demo’s because we believe in the hands-on approach. Also, you will make an authentic Peruvian dish to tantalize your taste buds and later enjoy your achievements. To cook, we use ceramic pots, the same as our ancestors did. As a result, we will keep all the flavor as natural as they are.
Also, during our local market tour off the beaten track, you will learn about an array of different regional ingredients, most of which are very strictly Peruvian. It will soon become obvious why Lima and Peru have become the food meccas of South America! These ingredients come from the plentiful Pacific coasts, the fertile Andean mountainsides, and the farthest corners of the Amazon Rainforest that Peru so proudly calls its own.
And finally, you will be able to taste a big variety of exotic Peruvian fruits and try the famous Pisco Sour drink! We believe that if you are a travel foodie, trying something new is a great opportunity and also a way to get to know better our culture and gastronomy.

Carefully and after a long work together with chefs, cooks, gourmets and local food lovers we choose 4 different great options to teach to cook then you have to choose among these tasty dishes:
FISH; the Peruvian dish we choose to cook with fish is: “Pescado a la Chorrillana” (Main Course): Fried onions, tomatoes, chili pepper, and bay leaf, add fish broth and then a Fish fillet in low heat and its ready to eat, as starter we will cook together our Peruvian National dish called “Ceviche!”, the most popular dish among Peruvians! It is about small pieces of raw fish marinated in fresh aromatic lime juice tender onions, boiled sweet potatoes mixed with or without Andean hot chilis.
CHICKEN; for chicken, we cook: “Aji de Pollo” in English chili chicken (Main Course but is not spicy), consists of thin strips of chicken served with a creamy yellow and spicy sauce, made with ají Amarillo (non-spicy yellow chilis), cheese, milk, crunchy bread. As a starter, we will teach you to prepare the “Causa Limeña”: Mashed organic yellow potatoes seasoned with lime and aji (hot pepper), and filled with fresh seasonal local veggies (it’s a mild dish).
MEAT; our delicious “Lomo Saltado” (Main Course): Beef tenderloin slices, sautéed with onions, tomatoes, aji (hot peppers but not spicy), and more spices. It is served with French fries and rice, for starter we have our super delicious “Papa Rellena”: Little balls made of mashed potatoes filled with either meat or vegetables or Quinua. Once it’s close and fried, it is served with “Salsa Crioll”.
VEGETARIAN; “Pimiento Relleno” (Main Course); which is stuffed capsicum, filled up with fresh organic vegetables, Quinua and aromatic herbs from the north of the country, for starter we will together make “Solterito” in English “Single men” with green peas, fava beans, Quinua and olive oil, very delicious.
