Cooking Class & Lima City Tour

Market Visit and Fruit Festival

After having breakfast at the hotel, you will start your day with a visit to the Main market to purchase all of the food and ingredients for the class. This market is a great way to experience a little bit of the Peruvian culture in its daily life. In the Main Market you can find the best variety of vegetables and fruits in the country, including exotic products from the Andes and the Jungle. In Peruvian markets, "regateo" is a common practice "asking for a discount and negotiating the price for the product with each vendor" people even ask for a "yapa" something for free with your purchase, one extra lime or one extra potato. We will also have the change to taste many of the exotic fruits that Peru offers.    

Cooking Class, Tasting and Lunch

Then, we will start our Basic Peruvian Cuisine. Our chefs will teach you the quintessential basics of Peruvian Cuisine. You will learn how to prepare Peru’s staple dishes and afterwards you will enjoy a full tasting of them. Demonstration class and lunch will offer an opportunity to taste the many dishes you learned to prepare during this class. It includes a Cooking Set and Recipes.

Lima City Tour

We will start our tour with a great panoramic view of the Parque del Amor and La Huaca Pucllana, an old pre-Inca construction dating back to 500 DC. Later on we will head towards the heart of the city to visit its colonial area. Once we get there, we will start a nice walking tour that will take us to see various attractions of the city: the Paseo de la República (Republic's Promenade), San Martin Square and the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), with their different buildings: Government Palace, Archibishop's Palace, the Basilica Cathedral and the Municipal Palace.

We will continue our tour at the Convent of San Francisco, which was built in colonial times and still keeps all the treasures from the Spanish era, including subterranean catacombs. After visiting the centre of Lima, we will head to the modern section of this great metropolis and will visit the district of San Isidro, stopping at its Olive Grove. Finally, we will visit Miraflores with its nice shopping center called Larco Mar, which was built on a spectacular cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
