This is the perfect class for people who loves to taste traditional food while visiting a new country! You'll love the relaxed atmosphere without boring demonstrations because our chefs believe in the hands-on approach. To preserve the cultural origin of Peruvian cuisine. We use ceramic pots, the same as our ancestors did. In this way, food keeps all its natural flavors. The hardest part is to choose between these 4 tasty dishes options: Option 1, Fish: - Main Course 'Pescado a la Chorrillana': Fried onions, tomatoes, chili pepper, bay leaf, fish broth, and a Fish fillet cooked in low heat. - Starter 'Ceviche': This is the most popular dish among Peruvians.
