We first went to a little cal market where the guide,Jose told us about veggies and fruits of Peru while the chef Ruth shopped for the meal we had chosen. Then in the kids chen we prepared the food Ruth was in charge and she easily prepared everything with our help in chopping and storing. Then we created our appetizer of potatoes, quinoa and avocado. So tasty As was the pan fried sea bass with a Peruvian sauce. The best meal we had in Lima. And we learned so much about Peruvian culture along the way bOne of our best excursions ever.

The experience has been great. The guide and the chef have been lovely. We learned to make cause and lomo saltado. The experience at the market where we bought the food beforehand has been great as well. I recommend this to anyone who values the human experience and the great taste of food.

David and our guide with Haku Tours were so amazing. This is a can't miss experience. Im inspired to cook more creative dishes when i return home. They were very knowledgeable and shared so many gyms avout food and Peru in general with us. Everything was so beautifully prepared (we were coached well!) and delicious. And the mounds of Peruvian fruit we tried were to die for.
