DIET ACCOMMODATED ON THIS TOUR. NOTE ALL ALLERGIES WHEN BOOKING
Take a guided market food 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 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 jungle, highland and coastal foods – from potatoes to gooseberries to guavas. 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 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 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.
