About
Enjoy a private market tour and authentic cooking class in a local home with host your Lucia who studied at the Cordon Bleu in Peru. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Explore one of Lima's most authentic produce markets. Here in this lively, covered market where locals rub shoulders and shop, discover the freshest ingredients for your cooking class. Peru is known for a wide variety of vegetables (3000 kinds of potatoes!) that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere in the world. Your cooking class will take place in a local home kitchen where Lucia will teach you how to make three traditional Peruvian dishes from her family recipes. After cooking, you will enjoy your meal together in your host's home. • Market tour and cooking lesson in a local home • Introduction to Peru's culture and cuisine • 100% private activity • Experience Peruvian hospitality in a residential Miraflores neighborhood • Vegetarian options available

What to expect
  • This is a unique opportunity to tour a local market and visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet your host Lucia at Mercado 1 Surquillo and explore one of Lima's most authentic produce markets where Lucia will purchase tropical fruits and produce, for example, lucuma or tumbo that you can sample in her home as well as fresh ají amarillo or rocoto chilies that you may use in your meal. The market tour will last about 45 minutes after which you will drive 5-minutes to Lucia's Miraflores home for your authentic Peruvian cooking class which will last about two and a half hours. You will learn to cook three Peruvian dishes from scratch - a ceviche, causa and lomo saltado. Let Lucia know if she can teach you less common ancient or Andean recipes such as papa a la huancaína, quinoa chaufa, a sauteed organic quinoa with chicken and vegetables or seco, a meat stew in a cilantro base. Learn tips and techniques involved in Peruvian cooking before you sit down at the table to enjoy the meal you prepared. Your meal concludes with a tasting of fresh, seasonal Peruvian fruit and includes beverages such as tea, coffee, purple chicha and a pisco sour or chilcano.
