Take a guided market food tour, and prepare some of the signature dishes of Peru.
We’ll spend the morning in a traditional market. Here, fresh foods are delivered in the evenings by a handful of local farmers. The market is a sea of vendors who sell just about every variety of produce native to Peru. Friendly vendors will 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 the jungle, highland, and coastal foods – from native potatoes to gooseberries to maca root.
Then, we’ll go to our kitchen with a breathtaking ocean view for your fun cooking class while you are listening to and feeling the Pacific breeze.
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 prepare classic ceviche, made with the 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, Pisco sour.
This tour can also accommodate vegetarians upon prior notice.
