What you'll do

First we will go through the market to know and learn about the fruits, vegetables and grains of Peru; the history of each one, our culture and the influences we have in the world. (This visit is optional).
Then we will go to my apartment in the center of Miraflores to have the class. In this one, we will learn about Andean ingredients and how to cook them.
We will prepare 3 delicious recipes using inputs from the Peruvian highlands: Trout Ceviche, Andean Potatoes in huancaína sauce and finally quinoa chaufa; accompanied at all times by a delicious Chilcano (and other drinks from our country).
* We will also have a tasting of Andean roots and tubers.

In the experience you will be able to learn a little more about the mountains of Peru, its cooking techniques and discover together the ingredients that we used since the time of the Incas.

* This experience is a great gift for anyone who loves cooking ... or just enjoys eating!
* Ask me for other available times and dates.
* Also available: vegetarian and other options.

I love that Lucia brought me in the market before getting into the activity. She provided detailed information about Peruvian cuisine fusion with other culture. Everything was organized and precise, i love it that way!

Had an excellent cooking class wth Lucia! She was very friendly, warm and provided me with an authentic food and stories behind. I met her at a mercado nearby to know about overall the Peruvian ingredients and buy some fruits I've never tried. We started cooking at Lucia's home which was cozy and beautiful. I learned a lot about how to prepare the traditional Peruvian dishes. Best part is I got to eat each food just after it was made at the perfect timing. It was definitely my favorite meal in Peru! Recipes were provided afterwards. Excellent experience, highly recommended!!
