What you'll do

Welcome to my kitchen, in the most famous Inca city: Cusco. In this online cooking class, we will explore the flavors of Peru. You will learn how to make the national drink of Peru, Pisco Sour and one the most representative dishes of my country such as Ceviche.

During our class, I will share with you not only tips and kitchen shortcouts, but also information about Peruvian ingredients and food. Also, I will check on how everyone is doing in the group, so feel free to ask me any question you have. I want you to make the most of the class!

First, we will make the famous Pisco Sour, a delicious combination of pisco, lemon juice, egg white and syrup. Then, we will prepare the classic style of the popular Ceviche, and at the same time we will prepare the Nikkei style with mango. It will be nice to know which one you prefer after you taste it! Also, I will accommodate guests with dietary restrictions for sure!

I will be happy you can share your new talent, as a Peruvian chef, with your family and friends after this online experience.

I can also prepare other Peruvian dishes with you instead of Ceviche. We can cook Ají de Gallina + Causa Peruana, or Lomo Saltado. If you are interested in cooking them just let me know through a message, please.

Also, if you are looking for another schedule just contact me. In addition, we offer Experiences for private groups.

Jesus is an AMAZING CHEF. We had the best time. I was travelling w a group of 13 friends and this was the best experience for a meal in Cusco. We made learned to make pisco sours, ceviche and a delicious dessert of 7 fruit I had never heard of before! Jesus put on great music, created a fun atmosphere and also had a lot of “surprises” up his sleeve! We loved this experience. The food was delicious and fresh - the best we had in Cusco. This is a MUST.

I booked Jesus for a private group experience to celebrate a birthday in Australia. Everyone had a great time, the Lomo saltado and pisco sours were delicious. Having tasted both of these in Peru a number of years ago, l can say the recipes and techniques that are shared by Jesus are authentic. I would highly recommend this Peruvian experience!

We loved our private cooking class with Jesus. We got to make pisco sour and lomo saltado. It took us back to being in Peru and loved that Jesus told stories and interacted with us as we were cooking. We'd definitely recommend his cooking classes! The food and drink were awesome too.

Jesus was a great host, lots of fun and interesting fact plus delish ceviche not to mention the very morish Pisco sours. Thoroughly enjoyable online gathering for our family all over Australia, highly recommended.
