Food Tour Overview

First, get set to dive into a Lima local market full of fresh foods delivered in the evenings by our friendly neighborhood farmers. Peru is one of the world’s most bio-diverse countries and producer of a bewildering array of jungle, highland, and coastal foods – from native potatoes to maca root, awaits our exploration. Because of that, this local Market has many varieties of produce native to Peru. Also, the market vendors will give us a taste of their organic & fresh fruits

After the market visit, we’ll head to our kitchen with a breathtaking ocean view for your fun Peruvian cooking class while you listen to and feel the Pacific breeze.

During the class, you’ll learn cooking techniques with a local cook. The menu is fixed and we’ll use the ingredients we pick up during our morning market visit. The class will start with the sculptural potato appetizer called Causa. Two layers of chilled, smashed yellow potatoes surround a filling — in many cases, vegetables, seafood, or chicken. Then we’ll move on to prepare Peruvian ceviche, which is declared a World Heritage. It’s made with the catch of the day, red onions, chili peppers, and served with sweet potato and Andean corn. Additionally, learn the steps behind making Peru’s national drink, Pisco Sour. You can’t miss this experience.

This tour can also accommodate vegetarians upon prior notice.

our Peruvian Cooking Class Tour?

Amazing mother/daughter trip of Peru We had an amazing Peru trip with Arturo of Lima Tasty Tours. Arturo was the guide for my family 11 years ago. When my 80 year old mom wanted to see Machu Picchu I reached out to Arturo to plan a trip for the two of us so we could go at our own pace.He planned an outstanding trip to Ollantaytambo, Maras, Morray, Pisac, Machu Picchu, Cusco, and ending with a Lima city and food tour, and stay overlooking the ocean. He was so accommodating when selecting hotels to stay at and really listened to our budget and what types of places we wanted to stay. All hotels booked were great. Everyone was incredibly hospitable. We had comfortable beds, excellent breakfasts, and very friendly staff.Arturo was with us the entire trip and is a great ambassador for his country. He has a deep knowledge of Peru’s history and is full of great information about the state of the country currently. In addition, we had an amazing driver and guide in the Sacred Valley, Isaac. He, like Arturo, has a wealth of information about Peru and many personal experiences with farming, hiking the Inca trail, etc. We felt in good hands with Isaac driving and loved his enthusiasm. We also had an outstanding guide, Hector, in Machu Picchu. All three were incredibly patient and helpful with making sure my mom was able to fully enjoy all the sights at a pace that worked for her and were always next to her if she needed assistance climbing stairs that didn’t have a railing. They also helped us connect with locals to better experience their way of life. Food was delicious everywhere we went. It really helps that Arturo is a foodie. We tried everything from guinea pig, alpaca, chicken, seafood, potatoes (they have 100s of different types), super fresh fruit and homemade fresh juices, to ceviche, corn beer (Chicha), and Pisco Sours. Yum Yum Yum!I cannot say enough good things about Arturo and our trip. We felt completely safe and thoroughly enjoyed every part of the trip. He is an honorable man, with a great sense of humor, and a great love for his family and country. Note: 11 years ago, he was great with our children also. They were 8, 11, and 14 at that time. He felt like a close extension of our family.
Perfect! This tour was one of our favorites in a twenty four day visit to South America. Lima was spectacular and Arturo was the best! We ate great food and learned so much about Lima in a short walking tour around the city. He was so funny and entertaining. His knowledge and love of Lima was abundantly clear. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learned about a culture and their food.
Amazing Experience Arturo was fantastic and provided the authentic lima experience. Had wonderful time trying the local delicacies.

An Enlightening Intro to Peruvian Food and Culture Did the Lima market food tour with my partner and her parents, and it was an incredible experience. Arturo was a funny, kind, incredibly well-informed guide who seemed to have friends everywhere we went. He led us on a fascinating tour of a local market, showing us local soups, sandwiches, sweets, and — the highlight — exotic fruit from across Peru, which we stood and sampled for maybe half an hour. All of them were like nothing I’ve ever had. Then he took us to Lima Centro, where we met up with another guide, Julio, who told us about the history and architecture of Lima, happily answering our many questions. The tour concluded with a leisurely lunch at a local spot, where Arturo and Julio ordered us a mess of delights: ceviche, rice with duck, a stewed goat dish, potato fritters, and some of the best orange juice I’ve ever had. All in all, a perfect first day in Lima and Peru. I’d recommend this tour to anyone, as long as you’re hungry and curious.
Wonderful Fantastic tour ! Wonderful food . Arturo is so knowledgeable and his English is impeccable!We were so delighted with this tour. We weee originally booked for Sunday but because of the closure of the Lima airport we had to reschedule. Arturo was super flexible and so fun!

Great food, great stories! Hands down, one of the best experiences we've had in Peru! Sheyla went out of her way to give us an immersive experience :) We absolutely loved walking around among the locals in the market trying different foods and hearing the story behind every dish. Sheyla also bought lots of diffferent fruit for us to try and took us to a tiny local restaurant we would have never known to go to ourselves, where we had some of the best dishes we had in Lima. Make sure you go on an empty stomach! Highly recommended!!
Más que recomendable, es como viajar con un hermano Espectacular recorrido por lima y sus alrededores en busca de experiencias y sabores. Arturo un especialista en todo sentido, como profesional y como persona. Un equipo de trabajo excelente. No sólo Lima, sino todo el recorrido que nos organizo.
