What to expect in this cooking class
Hone your cooking skills in a convivial Peruvian family atmosphere. During this cooking class, you will taste up to 10 flavors, which includes a starter and a dish that you’ll cook yourself following the recipes and tips of your experienced chef. The experience includes the visit to a local street market where you will buy the ingredients needed for the cooking class, from your chef’s favorite merchants. The market tour will also allow you to taste some seasonal fruits and immerse yourself in a true local market experience – you will be the only tourists, for sure!
Map the experience
Although the experience starts at your chef's market at 11:00 am, you will be picked up by taxi at your desired location in Miraflores, San Isidro or Barranco districts (included in the price) between 10:20 and 10:45 am. We will follow up with you about this via email after your booking.
The experience ends at your chef's apartment around 3 pm. From there, you will be dropped off by a taxi at your desired location in Miraflores, San Isidro or Barranco districts (included in the price).
- What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies? Can we modify slightly the menu listed above?
If you suffer any allergy or dietary restrictions, make sure to inform us during the check-in and we will take the necessary precautions to adapt the menu for you.
- Will you send us the recipes of the meals we’ll have prepared during the experience?
Of course! Right after the cooking class, we’ll send you a digital book with the recipes and tips learned during the day.
- Is this cooking class family friendly? If I am bringing an infant/very young child, do I need to purchase a ticket for them?
Of course you can! Children will certainly love discovering new flavors! If you’re traveling with a child under 6 or an infant, there is no need to buy a ticket for them. However, still let us know if you’re going to bring a child under 6, so our chef knows and will be prepared for it.
My husband and I had a thoroughly enjoyable market tour followed by lunch with Pia and her husband. I highly recommend this tour!
We had a great experience with Giancarlo, walking with him in the market and then with the cooking class in his house. He is a very dedicated host to his guests and we highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get an authentic feel for Peruvian cuisine in Lima.
We had an amazing day with Kelly. At the market we could taste different local fruits and afterwards we went to her flat, where we started cooking. Kelly was amazing, she is so friendly and she answered all our questions about Peru and food. The food we cooked was so delicious and I will definitely cook it again. We had a lot of fun and felt warmly welcomed.
