You will learn about ingredients and the preparation of typical Peruvian dishes by preparing a 3 or 4 course meal by yourself. This is a hands-on cooking class under the instruction of one of our chefs. Enjoy your self-prepared dishes on a nice rooftop terrace overlooking Miraflores having a conversation with your fellow participants and the chef. Add a market tour to your cooking class and learn where most Peruvians get their fresh ingredients daily.

I was a bit hesitant at first since this is in an apartment at the top of a nondescript building. However, it was so much fun. We made four dishes, and ate them in between cooking. The two instructors were phenomenal, and their two assistants handled all the cleanup. Having spent several days in Lima, I can say this should be at the top of everyone's list of things to do.

“Fantastic start to a amazing vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We decided that we would take our cooking class on our first full day- this way, we would get some feedback from locals of where to go.
I could have not been any happier to have attended- It was worth every penny. Yurac and Christian are so welcoming. It was a really fun way to learn how to cook Peruvian food. I learn a lot and we had a great time doing it.
I highly recommend you add this to your itinerary if you are visiting Lima.
Thank you again guys! We will see you again on our next Lima visit!

“Fantastic Experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We were lucky enough to experience the lunch cooking class during our brief stay in Lima during a recent cruise. The class was excellent with lots of useful tips that helped us achieve amazing results when we tried the recipes when we came back home to Canada. The Team makes you feel right at home and left us with a great impression of Peruvian cuisine. Would do it again in a heart-beat.

“A "Must Do" when visiting Lima”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We did a market tour and lunch cooking class at Sky Kitchen and it was a highlight of our trip. Christian and Yurac were wonderful hosts - the facility is on the rooftop of their flat - it is gorgeous. We met Christian for a market tour in the morning and learned about many types of produce not available to us in the States. It was also great to see the market in action - so many colors - everything looks so fresh. After that, we headed to Sky Kitchen for a 3 course lunch cooking class. We started with a tasting of ALL the different produce we learned about at the market. Then, made a potato appetizer, cebiche, and a chicken main course. The food was amazing and we got many great cooking tips along the way. It is great fun and a good way to learn about Peruvian culture through its food.

“What an evening at SkyKitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

I had the great pleasure of spending the evening with Christian and Yurac a few weeks ago when were in Lima on vacation. A visit to the SkyKitchen is much more like a visit to someone's home then a commercial establishment. The entire evening was second to none with great instruction and fantastic food. My group of 4 was easily integrated with three others for an evening of friendship and fun. Do yourself a favor try SkyKitchen. A++.
