Full description
This is a Peruvian cooking class where you will learn how to cook dishes that all Peruvians will die for. Be prepared to enjoy, taste and be happy, the chefs and team will make your day unforgettable. This class is for people who love traditional food and want to make it at home! You'll love the relaxed atmosphere with no dull demo's, because the chefs believe in the hands-on approach. You will make an authentic Peruvian dish to tantalize your taste buds and later enjoy your achievements. To cook, use ceramic pots, the same as the ancestors did. This way keeps all the flavor natural. Choose from the following 4 great options featuring a variety of tasty dishes: Option 1, Fish: Main Course: "Pescado a la Chorrillana" , Fried onions, tomatoes, chili pepper and bay leaf, fish broth, and a Fish fillet cooked in low heat.

Option 2, Chicken: Main Course: "Aji de Pollo" in English chili chicken (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, and crunchy bread. Starter: "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) Option 3, Meat:  Main Course: "Lomo saltado", Beef tenderloin slices, sautéed with onions, tomatoes, aji (hot peppers but not spicy), and more spices. It is served with French fries and rice. Starter: "Papa Rellena" Little balls made of mashed potatoes filled with either meat or vegetables or quinoa.

I was picked up on time and taken to a local market where we bought the ingredients. A lot was explained to me about the Peruvian vegetables and fruits. Then we went to the kitchen, where we prepared 4 different things: Peruvian snacks, fruits, Causa and Lomo Saltado. The chef was so nice and friendly and the food was delicious. Can only recommend the tour!
