Incredible! Great tour of the market with samples of local eats. The food recipes were easy to follow and delicious! I look forward to recreating they at home for friends and family. Coveted everything from a classic take on a Pisco cocktail to local fruit dessert. The best class I’ve taken abroad.

Chef Christian was by far one of the coolest people I met in this trip. Our first stop was el Mercado San Pedro, Cuscos main market. A must visit if you are curious how locals get their groceries and other goods! Then we prepared multiple Peruvian dishes with the ingredients we got at el Mercado San Pedro. Such as, Ceviches, tiraditos etc.

Great experience. Tour and chef itself was great. Only negative side was from Viator, since online it says that Lomo Saltado would be main dish for dinner and cerviche for lunch. I booked dinner and we prepared cerviche instead of Lomo Saltado. It tasted great and was fun including chatting with the other couple in our class, but mildly annoyed regarding Viator's false advertising.

This was an excellent experience. All of the dishes we prepared were recognizable on menus the rest of our stay in Peru. Highly recommended way to start your stay in Cusco after long travels.

Awesome experience in Cusco. Started the tour at the San Pedro market with the chef and then off to the cullinary kitchen for a great meal. Just the two of us with the chef, wenhad an awesome time making ceviche, aji gallina, pisco sour, etc. Great experience and would recommend it to everyone if you have half a day available. Lots of food so don't eat anytime before the class!
