Get hands-on experience preparing some of Peru’s most iconic dishes and shopping at a local market during this 4-hour Lima cooking class. First stop by the market to pick out fresh meat and produce, discovering the incredible diversity of ingredients in Peruvian cuisine. Then head to the kitchen choosing to prepare a choice of fish, chicken, beef or vegetarian dish like ‘Ceviche’ or ‘Lomo Saltado,’ learning the necessary steps in fun, relaxed atmosphere. Your cooking excursion also includes round-trip hotel transport (for most areas of Lima), professional chef instructor, snacks and either lunch or dinner.
This was a lot of fun. We loved going through the market, tasting all the delicious fruit and dinner! The only complaint we had is that we didn’t necessarily “cook”. We chopped up the produce and we stirred the pot so it more felt like we were sue chefs versus cooking especially since we are pretty good cooks at home. Overall though, we would definitely recommend. The tour guide was great and the chef very passionate!
Dear Customer, thanks for rating us! It is nice to hear you enjoyed your time in Lima as well as our guide company!
Cuisine is a key element in the peruvian identity, so we are more than sure you learn a lot about our culture with this tour. And that's makes us happy!
Excellent experience, learned so much about the culture and different types of cooking methods and different foods. Didn’t realize Peru had over 4000 different types of potatoes! Highly recommend this tour, they give back to their community 60% of the cost of this tour, great company!
It was excellent. We went into the market and our guide was amazing at explaining the history of the different foods and how they are/were used. The cooks were great and we were able to taste a variety of traditional foods. Highly recommended for any visitor to give a try!
There were only my wife and I for this cooking class. They had a chef and interpreter. Both couldn’t have been nicer. Went to the market where they answered all of our questions and then to the private kitchen, tasted 6 or 7 fruits we had never had before. Cooked sevachi, made 2 kinds of salsa, and cooked fish. All wonderful.
From start to finish, I had such a delightful afternoon having the Peruvian cooking lesson with Chef David and Assistant Lucas! I have always loved specifically ceviche and the Peruvian cuisine in general, so I wanted to learn how to make a few dishes. Shopping for the organic produce and fish was helpful, because Chef David described which product was good for specific types of dishes; for example, which potatoes are good for making potato salad, which ones are good for roasting, which are good for pureeing, etc. Also, I was not familiar with the Peruvian fruits, so Chef David and Lucas gave me the names of the different fruits and how to eat or use them. I enjoyed slicing and chopping the produce with the
The Chef was soooo nice and the Food we cooked was incredibly flavorful. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who goes to Lima. The tour thru the local market was really nice and the donut pastries the best!
Superb cooking class with an excellent chef and assistant as well as classmates. Timely pickup and fun shopping at the local market with all the flavor of Peruvian ingredients purchased for the class. Fun outdoor locale to cook and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone that is interested in learning how to cook indigenous Peruvian meals. Thanks!.
I had a great time in this cooking class which started at a local market shopping and learning about the products we would be using. The cooking class was hands on and included a tasting of some fruits I had never tried before and the preparation of three different courses. chef David and Pamela were great instructors for someone who doesnt speak Spanish and even setup my transportation to and from the class. I recommend this class.
This was the highlight tour of our entire 18 day vacation! Jonathan and Chef David were so personable and knowledgeable
about Peruvian cuisine and the market experience was amazing. We did not expect to have choices on what we would prepare, but that was a wonderful feature if you have strong food preferences. We highly recommended this tour to our friends staying in Lima and would repeat the experience when we visit Lima again. Thank you Haku tours for your attention to your customers and your philosophy of giving back to your community. Well done!!!!
