Description

Recently, Peruvian cuisine has become one of the trendiest in the world, but its origins go back thousands of years. The secret behind the success of Peruvian food is the use of fresh, unique ingredients and the cultural heritage of the country’s indigenous people, Afro-Peruvian population and immigrants from Asia and Europe. This tour will let you experience the very best of the culinary world of Lima, named the “Gastronomic Capital of the Americas.”

You will be picked up from your Hotel or door of Callao Cruise Terminal to begin your gastronomy tour of Lima. Then, we go to a local market to buy all the ingredients to cook some Peruvian typical food and you will also appreciate our different vegetables, fruits, meats and other products available in Peru.

Later, we will go to to visit a local family where the chef Dina will show you how to make the peruvian food, step by step to prepare one entrance and one main course. And our tour guide/bartender Jhony will show you how to make the best Pisco Sour which is our traditional drink:
