Duration Tour: 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
Take a guided market tour, prepare some of the signature dishes of Peru. You’ll visit a typical fresh produce market in Lima, and learn how to prepare Peru’s national dishes and drink.
We’ll spend the morning in not a regular food market -here fresh foods dropped off the evening before by a handful of local farmers, it is a sea of vendors they just sell about everything covering the most outstanding species native to Peru. Friendly vendors will be happy to give us a taste of their fruits and other wares as we marvel at the range of ingredients on offer in Peru, one of the world’s most bio-diverse countries and producer of a bewildering array of jungle, highland and coastal foods. Then, we’ll go a local restaurant with great ocean view for your fun cooking class.
You will learn cooking techniques with a local cook, The menú is fixed – we’ll use the ingredients learned on our morning market visit – the class will start with this sculptural potato salad called Causa. Two layers of chilled, smashed yellow potatoes surround a filling — in many cases, vegetables, seafood or chicken. Then we’ll prepare Classic ceviche, made with catch of the day, red onions -hot peppers and served with sweet potato and Andean corn. Also learn the steps behind making Peru’s national drink, the Pisco sour.
This tour can also accommodate vegetarians upon prior notice.
