Exotic foods and great meal
Dec 2020 • Family
I came on this tour with my 18 year old son. Christian was a terrific guide and teacher. We sampled a lot of delicious and exotic fruits. We then made 4 dishes which I would be confident to try to make in the United States. I love Peruvian food so this was a great class. Highly recommended.

Cooking Class in Lima!
Mar 2020
My wife and I had a great experience with Jose and Maritza at SkyKitchen in Lima, Peru. We walked the market, selecting some items that we would later use in our cooking class. Upon arrival to the kitchen, everything was very well organized and Jose was a great instructor! Our dishes were fun to prepare, and very delicious. The Pisco Sours were also very tasty! We highly recommend this tour.

This cooking class and activities were one of the highlights of our visit to Lima. We started with a fascinating tour of the market and its many exotic foods, followed by a tasting of over 35 different fruits and then participated in cooking and eating Peruvian classics. Recipes provided so we can practice at home. A full, fun and entertaining day!

Great Fun
Last day in Lima and Peru. We were picked up at the hotel by our teacher and we went to a local food market. We were shown around a number of stalls and talked through the different items on sale. The insights were really interesting. The offal stall was fascinating!

We then went to the kitchen where we had a tasting of numerous different fruits, many of which we had seen for sale in the market.

A bit later we were joined by one other couple (two American girls) and then proceeded to prepare and cook a great four course lunch which we ate after we made each course. Bit of a group effort but great fun all the same. We also made Pisco Sours which went down a treat.

AMAZING cooking class experience
Jan 2020 • Friends
Probably the best thing we did on our trip to Lima. The staff was super friendly, very English-fluent and the class was engaging but not complicated. The portions of all 3 meals were full plus dessert so you walked away full and not feeling ripped off at ALL. Clearly a labour love for the owner and every single detail was thought through. Highly suggest the fruit tasting beforehand.

Fantastic Experience in Peruvian food tasting and Cooking
Dec 2019
Christian took us on an extraordinary tour of his local market. These markets can be a bit overwhelming so it was a very gratifying experience to be taken through he market with a food expert to translate and answer our questions.

After the market Christian brought us to his kitchen and had 35 different fruits and vegetables arranged in logical sequences so we could taste the differences between the various fruits. He had 5 different bananas arranged from sweet to savory so could explain how these were used as we tasted each one.

After the extensive tasting session, we started on the cooking lessons. He walked us through making a 4 course dinner. He provided extensive instructions to make these dishes accessible. Of course he also supplied, the recipes to take home. We love Ceviche and he led us into making a fantastic version of it and explained how it could be modified along the way with variously different seafoods.

Overall this was an extremely well done course. My husband and I have taken courses such as this a number of times in various parts of the globe. We can honestly say this was the best course we have taken, hands down.

If you are interested in Peruvian cooking and are in Lima, we highly recommend this course.

Even my tweens and teens love this experience!
It was so much fun going to the market, learning about the fruits and vegetables, and preparing our 4 course meal. We were so full!

We had a private tour because we were traveling with another family. Our tweens and teens absolutely enjoyed tasting the fruits, preparing and cooking our meals. They were so engaged. Diana was fun and knowledgeable. Her assistant was great too. The place was clean!!! It was such a wonderful experience. If you have time, I would strongly encourage you to take this cooking class.
