My entire family loves good food and cooking, which is one of the reasons we chose Peru as a destination for a recent trip. We booked the mar cooking class with Lady and had a wonderful afternoon. Lady was a great and energetic teacher, and the dishes we prepared were delicious and made for an excellent, and filling, lunch afterwards.... More

Peruvian Cooking Experience was so much fun, and tasty, too! Instructions were very clear and organized. And ingredients used, you could get anywhere. So the class is practical, as well.

We had a fun time making several different classic Peruvian dishes. We skipped the tour of the market and did that on our own. I didn't feel like we missed much from what other guests told us. We did the bartending to learn how to make pisco sours and enjoyed that as well.

The cooking experience was very professional, fun, a complete meal, and, best of all, a delicious lunch! I would highly recommend this experience with multi-national fellow cooking students and an excellent teacher named Lady Milagros.

We were guests at Casa de Avila hotel and enjoyed a 2 hour cookery course as an add-on. There were just four of us and we cooked Rocotto Relleno, Pastel de Papa and a salad starter. We'd had little sleep the night before (family party) but it held our attention and gave us a delicious lunch to sit down to... More
