    What to Expect
    Choose lunch or dinner tour time (9am or 3pm) when booking. Meet at the San Pedro Central Market, the city's largest and most popular, filled with local products from all over Peru. Learn about endemic varieties of potatoes and corn commonly used in Peruvian cuisine.

    Begin your cooking class with a lesson on pisco sours, the national drink of Peru. You'll learn to make this famous Peruvian national drink and taste it as well. Afterwards, your culinary experience would begin. Depending on your choice of lunch or dinner, we would prepared some traditional Peruvian dishes, with a modern twist, always guided by our Peruvian chef. To put the cherry on top of the cake, the last step of the class will be a typical Peruvian dessert, where we'll taste some of Peru's most exotic fruits.

    This was one of my favorite experiences in Peru. The San Pedro Market was big and could have been overwhelming, but having a local guide was just what we needed. The location of the cooking class was so beautiful and full of Peruvian culture, it was clean and very well organized

    Lovely people with a passion for PISCO and flaming frying pans. The market was fun but we expected to choose more ingredients from the enormous choice available. Hot plates when serving would have been a bonus. The meal was perfectly organised so that anyone with dietary needs
