A great time, and a great meal
A great experience, with a chef that really shows you he knows what he is talking about. Between the market visit and the whole class, we had an amazing time, and ate a very good meal!

Wonderful cooking class experience!
Wonderful and easy cooking class! We started in the San Pedro Market to learn about local ingredients and then went to the cooking studio, where we prepared three classic Peruvian dishes. Chris, our chef, was awesome, polite and very knowledgable. Also, the studio was spotless-very clean. Even the glasses were spotless. I did it with my husband and was worried what skill level would be required (mostly for my husband’s sake!) but Chris had everything so prepped and controlled that we could easily follow along and mimic his moves. HIGHLU RECOMMEND!

Definitely prioritize this activity!
Excellent first activity in Peru! We learned a lot about Cusco, Peru, the cooking/cuisine, the culture and we made a delicious meal. It was such an intimate experience and probably the best meal we had in Peru. Worth it!

The best food we had in Peru!
Sep 2021
We absolutely loved our cooking class with Chris in Cusco! We went to the market to learn about Peruvian ingredients then headed back to the studio to cook. The studio is small and inviting.....we loved the smaller group size. Chris is very professional and easily answered all of our questions. We made a delicious passion fruit pisco sour, ceviche, quinoa risotto and Peruvian fruit parfait. It was the best meal we had in Peru! Highly recommend this class!

Fantastic experience with kid in tow!
Sep 2021
We met Christian at the market to buy some ingredients, and he was fantastic about walking us through the thousands of potatoes, and telling us about salt, and vegetables, herbs, and fruits and he introduced us to some great vendors who we went back to purchase items from the next day. Then went back to TASTE and made a fantastic meal that I felt we could absolutely recreate at home (if we can find alpaca!). It was enjoyable not only for my husband and I, but also for our 11 year old daughter, who kept up with all the instructions. Christian had a great rapport with her, and I think would do really well with any (interested) kids!

Wonderful afternoon of the tastes and smells of Peruvian culture.
Cristian provides a wonderful experience into the food and culture of peru. He toured us thru the san pedro market which is a good way to understand local commerce and enjoy the sights and smells of a big market. The food diversity in peru is worth seeing and tasting. We purchased some different fruits for our dessert. His cooking space is cozy and he caters to small groups which makes the experience personal. The food was so good. Cristian is a creative chef, we made a sashimi version of ceviche which was amazing. I have found participating in a cooking class is a great way to experience a new culture. Take the time to do this, you wont be disappointed.

This has been one of the highlights of my trip so far! Chris was so knowledgable and did he absolute best to allow us to try new, Peruvian inspired things. My friends and I still can't stop talking about the food that we learned to made and the flavors & textures that Chris put together! Absolutely loved it and wish we could do it again!

Amazing Peruvian cuisine experience with Christian
Fantastic day with Christian! I will remember it my whole life diving in the Peruvian cuisine with an excellent and super friendly Chef.
We’ve been through the market together where he took the time to present me and explain many products that can be found in Peru and some specifically from the Cusco region.
Then, we went to his beautiful cooking studio to prepare a full lunch with a traditional cocktail.
It’s been awesome from A to Z and I fully recommend the experience!
Thanks again Chris!

Highly recommend! Delicious and Fun
May 2021
What an incredible experience!! My mom and I were looking for a fun local activity to do and this was the perfect option.

To begin, we met Chef Chris outside of San Pedro market to shop for the class. He walked us through the market, showing us different food items and explaining Peruvian culture. It was the perfect amount of education, sightseeing, and fun.

After grocery shopping, we headed to the cooking studio, which is located in an adorable old courtyard. The class started with a delicious Pisco Sour that we made with Chris. He explained the different type of Piscos and the history behind the Pisco Sour.

We continued to make delicious ceviche, alpaca with a red wine sauce (honestly the best thing I ate in all of Peru), and a dessert with local fruits. The class was informative, hands-on, but not a ton of work that it wasn't enjoyable. Chris prepped some of the foods for us and walked us through everything step-by-step. He is VERY knowledgeable and answered all of our questions.

Overall, it was fun to get to know the local cuisine and culture. We had a lovely, relaxing evening. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Also, we went in May 2021 during COVID. Chris made us feel safe the entire time and the entire cooking studio is very clean. We had to wear masks and face shields in the market, which Chris gave us a heads up about.

Don't miss out on Taste Peruvian cooking studio while you're in Cusco
Jul 2021
Do yourself a favor and head to Taste Peruvian cooking studio ASAP! I had no idea that taking a cooking class when we got to Cusco would be this fun and informational.

Expertly guided through historical and colorful San Pedro Market, your senses ignite. Followed by bringing fresh local ingredients back to a professional cooking studio full of ridiculously delicious meals and animated belly laughs. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

For me, food is a sincere form of art. It heals people subtly, gently from the inside out. It brings people together in a unique form of unity that leaves room for bonding, exploration, creativity, and fulfillment.

We will be back
