After your arrival at the meeting point located in the city of Arequipa, we are going start this amazing cooking class in Arequipa with a welcome drink called Chicha Morada, a sweet refreshment made with purple corn without alcohol. This amazing food adventure begins with the preparation of two traditional Peruvian dishes. Our professional chef will explain to us how to cook step by step. Before starting, we are going to put on our apron and chef’s hat, and let’s cook delicious food! You will learn to cook one of these two types of menu: * Andean Menu: the first course is a fresh salad called “Solterito”, made with onion, tomato, corn, beans, cheese and potatoes. As a second course, you’ll prepare “Rocoto Relleno”, made from hot peppers, stuffed with ground meat seasoned with spices, cheese and raisins. The rocoto is a strong spicy red fruit, with an apple similar shape. * Traditional Menu: we will start cooking a tasty “Causa” as a first course, made with mash potato seasoned with yellow pepper and lemon, filled with avocado and tuna or chicken, decorated with black olives and vegetables. One of the most delicious Peruvian dishes to taste. The main course is a juicy “Lomo Saltado”, a traditional Chinese fusion dish, prepared in a wok. This dish has beef, onion, yellow pepper, tomato and French fries, with white rice on the side. Enjoy the cooking class while you are sharing your travel experiences with the group and the Peruvian chef, spending a fun time. At the end, we are going to eat our own dishes, and then, you’ll taste a dessert.
