The ultimate way to experience Peru‘s famous gastronomy is with a private chef as your guide. A special experience for all your senses, you’ll take in the colorful markets, learn to make classic dishes and then of course dig in, all washed down with an exceptional pisco sour.
Lima Food Tour
Your Lima food tour will start in a local market, where your private chef will take you to their favorite vendors, caseros, where you’ll see the abundance of Peru’s produce – sourced from all corners of the country, learn about local seasonal produce, and purchase ingredients for your cooking class later in the day.
After dropping your purchases off at her house, your chef will take you on a little exploration of her local neighborhood – the trendy arts district of Baranco, filled with galleries and boutiques – a lovely area to explore on your own afterward if you have time. Pause to enjoy a coffee together and visit her favorite local organic food shop.
Heading back to their home, you’ll begin your cooking lesson, with the chef teaching you about the origins and history of different ingredients, and how they’ve been used in different ways throughout time. Under their expert guidance, you’ll learn to prepare several classic Peruvian dishes and also a pisco sour. Enjoy a toast and canapes before sitting down to enjoy the magnificent feast that you’ve created together.
An Interactive Culinary Experience
This is a great interactive experience to enjoy as a group or family. The experience can be tailored to include visits to art galleries and boutiques for a full day exploring the art, culture and food of Peru.
