About
Hands-on cooking activity in Arequipa, the city well known as the cradle of the Peruvian Cuisine. You prepare your first Peruvian meal, with the help of our instructors. All of them carrying a family tradition on cooking. The objective, besides having fun and enjoying a great meal, is for you to learn and take back home an original Peruvian recipe to share with your beloveds. No watching, is about you learn to do it. Takes close to two hours and includes everything except beverages. A great compliment for the cooking is to take our Pisco Sour Lecture, We teach you about the history of Pisco, how to select it and drink it straight! and of course the preparation of the famous local cocktail: Pisco Sour   Looking for a "local feeling"? You got it. Bienvenido!

Great activity for Peruvian food lovers and if you want to take a break from all the hiking and exploring. We chose the andean menu, because I love Rocoto Relleno. we were just 5 people which was a great set up. The chef and all the staff were super friendly and made us feel comfortable and showed us some good techniques. The menu is not too complicated and at the end you have a nice delicious meal

Loved this experience, was everything it advertised to be. Nice small group too so you didn't get lost in the crowd. We all helped prep the food and cooked in pairs. They were authentic Peruvian dishes and we're delicious.

We had a fabulous time at our Peruvian cooking class. We stayed at Casa de Avila for two nights and were so happy to be able to book a class. Monica(?) was a fantastic teacher and made all of us very comfortable while integrating us into the food preparation. Everyone took part and contributed to the meal. We opted for the Pisco Sour instructional class following dinner which finished off the evening perfectly. One suggestion would be to make all participants aware that beer and wine are available during the class. We highly recommend Casa de Avila and the cooking class!!!

Great experience: from the cook, who not only supervised us in how to cook traditional peruvian food (which we enjoyed after the course), but also gave us interesting insights on Arequipa's and Peru's history, facts about the ingredients we were using, travel advice for Peru etc; to the beautiful location; up to the food we were cooking - many thanks!

That's the experience we provide. One where being food important, we think meeting people is the most. No, we are not chefs, meaning experts teaching recipes. We are Peruvian proud of our culture who are willing to share it and to learn from your culture too. Thanks for the visit!

Our group did the "Traditional" menu which is the one most easily replicated back home (causa and lomo saltado). The class was very interesting, we learned a bit of history mixed in with some cooking technique. Very informative and engaging... plus it was really good! A nice way to spend a couple of hours during your visit to Arequipa.

And you are ready to organize a Causaparty with your friends!i Thank you for being with us in Casa de Avila Hotel. Hope next time as guests. Peruvian cuisine is supported in history. And many recipes need the background to understand preparation. We do our best to direct you on preparing your own food Peruvian style. No chef preparing your food. And usually, everybody finishes having a delicious meal. The miracle: care, love and good vibes all over the activity! Thanks again

Normally, classes need at least 3 people signed up in order to run. Our class actually ended up just being my sister and I, but, instead of cancelling the class, the owner of the hotel came to give us a private class instead! We had a wonderful time learning from him about Arequipa and about traditional Peruvian cooking! Highly recommend for travelers looking for an authentic Peruvian experience!

Peruvian Cooking Experience is part of Casa de Avila Hotel experience. And of course, our guests deserve the best experience. And as the owner, I feel proud to know you had a great time in Arequipa and we helped on that. Don t forget to try to repeat the experience back home. And you have a new friend in Arequipa, Armando.

Reasonably priced. You don’t go to markets to collect the food or prepare your own food. They divide up the chopping and you fry your own portion and get to enjoy after.

That's a short description! But true. We are not taking you to the market anymore. The reason is we promote sustainable tourism. The market, being beautiful is a place where you should go to buy your groceries. Not only to take pictures. In handicrafts, groceries, eat something and spend their money there. Money is the fuel of tourism. Actually what we do is to show you how we prepare some recipes, you follow our directions and finish preparing a Peruvian two course meal. And we make sure you can repeat the experience back home. Thanks for your visit and keep in touch!

They call this a “hands on” cooking experience, but it is more. We did not cook. We prepared ceviche Peruvian style. The preparation took a bit more than half an hour, then we students all sat at a table to eat our preparation and talk. The chef/instructor (Monica) was excellent and made sure every student understood what to do and how to do it.

And that is what the Peruvian Cooking Experience is about. Sharing life experiences and culture with our guests. Ceviche is popular but delicate to do the recipe. So good you were capable to prepare it on your own. We have three menus to select, Traditional, Traditional and Sea Menu. All preparation happens in Csa de Avila , our hotel. A beautiful and unique installation. Central garden, comfortable beds, and the Cooking Experience at a very low price. Welcome anytime.
