My friend and I took a cooking class with Chef Jesus and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Cusco! The trip to the market was extremely informative and Jesus is knowledgeable and passionate about his job. The cooking class was the perfect mix of hands-on experience and demonstrations. The food was incredible! It was such a blast and I'd recommend this class to anyone visiting Cusco!

On return to Cusco from Machu Picchu my wife and I took this class with Jesus. We had a nice walk around the central Cusco and the food market. Jesus is very knowledgeable about his city as well as being a skillful chef. We learned a lot about the local cuisine, had fun during the class and enjoyed the delicious food jointly prepared.

Jesus was outstanding! He made the market come alive! We learned so much about Peruvian culture. Once we were in the studio we had such a great time. He was amazingly accommodating to all the different request dairy free, vegetarian, and others. He always did it with a smile on his face and made us feel as if we knew what we were doing at all times and the food and the Pisco Sours were great!

This was one of my favorite experiences in Peru. The San Pedro Market was big and could have been overwhelming, but having a local guide was just what we needed. The location of the cooking class was so beautiful and full of Peruvian culture, it was clean and very well organized and decorated. As for Jesus, our chef, he was so helpful, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He took the time to explain the culture and history behind the foods; which was awesome as a tourist trying to learn about the culture of this country. As for the food, it was AMAZING!!!! The ceviche was mouth watering, as were the other dishes. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Peru and looking to get in tune with the culture and food in Cusco! Thanks for an amazing time, Jesus.

Lovely people with a passion for PISCO and flaming frying pans. The market was fun but we expected to choose more ingredients from the enormous choice available. Hot plates when serving would have been a bonus. The meal was perfectly organised so that anyone with dietary needs was included.

My Chef was excellent. His tour of San pedro Market was delightful in that he was very knowledgeable and warm with the vendors who clearly knew and respected him.
His style is encouraging, engaging, and informative and just fun to be with. I learned a lot and look forward to making the recipes once I receive them.from him by email.
I would.definitely take another class with him if I get back to Cusco.
Great experience.
