Opt for this Lima culinary experience and you get it all: a market tour with a local chef to choose ingredients, exotic fruit tastings, and a hands-cookery lession where you learn to create classic dishes such as “Ceviche” before savoring them for lunch or dinner.

Great experience. We especially liked the tour of the market and learning about the local fruits, vegetables, spices, etc. The chef was knowledgeable and engaging. She fully engaged everyone and we learned about the local food, cooking methods, and how to adapt different recipes to our needs (allergies, vegetarian, etc). The food was amazing and we got to try a nice variety of fruits. My sons (22, 19), husband and I all really enjoyed it. We had to show vaccination cards to enter the market and masking was honored. I highly recommend if you enjoy cooking and learning about local foods. Our guides were very helpful and gave advice on other things to do in the area.

My friend and I did this tour on our first day in Lima. It was a great way to learn about the city, get introduced to the local markets, and fill our bellies with amazing food.The tour guide and chef were both very knowledgeable, fun, and kind. Food was delicious: included snacks, an exotic fruit tasting, starter, and main dish. 10/10 would recommend.

Sebastian and Nindi picked me on time at my hotel. We went straight to the market for grocery and selected the veggies, and fruits and animal proteins for cooking the Peruvian dishes. During the time at the market, Nindi did tell me about the variety of products, shared her personal experience as a chef. Back to the office we started to do the mise en place and cooking the papa relleno (filled potato), Ceviche. I was really looking forward to experience a new technique for ceviche and I definitely wasn’t disappointed!! Sebastián was there to translate from Spanish into English when I did not pick up and he was also our dishwasher man. Seriously I can’t recommend enough this tour, they are very professional and very kind!

We loved this experience! Amadeo and Nindi were both amazing. Nindi explained the entire cooking process in simple terms and helped us understand how Peruvian flavors are really made as well as how to recreate them back in the States with different ingredients. Amadeo spoke excellent English and was very thorough and patient walking us through the market describing produce and answering all our questions. He found out that we were doing another tour the next day with a different company and gave us a lot of helpful tips tips and recommendations--talk about going above and beyond! By the end of the evening, they both felt like friends and we were stuffed full of delicious food. Highly recommend!!

I don't know if I have a favorite part because the entire class and tour were absolutely amazing. On-time pick up with our two guides and our chef who all have amazing and friendly personalities. The tour of the local market was excellent and the explanations of different foods and how the entire market works was very interesting. We chatted with local vendors of all types and after we gathered our food we went back to their kitchen and began cooking. This class was nice bc each person had a different job so one dish didn't take a hour to make. The chef and everyone involved were absolutely amazing and we will be making the dishes back home in the states. This was our second tour with this company and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We had a great afternoon with our guide, Amadeus and our chef, Mindy. The visit to the market was most enjoyable! Amadeus was so knowledgeable and the local people in the market were extremely friendly.

The fruit tasting was beautiful and a great part to the tour. Finally the cooking is very relaxed and the food is fantastic. Mindy explains each step carefully. We were also delighted to hear that a portion of the price of the tour goes to helping community projects in Lima such as soup kitchens!

A great way to spend and afternoon in Lima!

My day started with a guide Robert picking me up at the hotel and grabbing a taxi to the local market. Robert was friendly and polite, and took time to explain me the menu options I have for the class. At the market, he took me through a different type of local foods sold in the market. And there, I met the chef Nindy.

At the kitchen, the chef Nindy and Robert helped me to learn and prepare ceviche, snacks, chilcano (soup), and pescado a la chorrillana (main fish dish). The chef Nindy is such a talented cook and all of her food tasted better than any of the food I tasted in the actual restaurants. And lucky me that I chose a fish dish with her since she said seafood dishes were her specialty!

What I liked most about the class with Nindy and Robert was the conversation we had during our class. I find I don't usually get to talk to or interact with locals when I travel and it was an unforgettable experience for me to spend such a quality time with them. Rober and Nindy was such a sweet person and I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is visiting Lima.

Thanks again for the great time today Robert and Nindy:)

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Amadeo and Chef Nindy. We had been in country for about a week when we took this tour and class and so had eaten at quite a few restaurants, what we made with Chef Nindy exceeded them all. The flavors and textures and plating were incredible. Amadeo and Nindy really helped us feel like family and we truly enjoyed our time with them. Honestly, can’t recommend this tour enough. You learn so much about Peruvian food AND Peruvian culture while feeling like you’ve made some friends.

Book this class. It is awesome. Amadeo does a great job of explaining all the different types of fruits and how the market operates. My favorite thing in any country is a local market and this guided short tour thru the market was awesome. After the market, we went to cook and eat. Our chef Nindi was so nice and such a great chef. I picked up a few tips to help the mise en place process go quicker. This class was a blast!

We enjoyed a lot this cooking class, we learned not only about the cooking (which you get to eat at the end!) but also about the ingredients and the vast diversity of fruits and vegetables from Peru at the market.
The chef Nindy and the guide Arlete were enthusiastic and shared so much knowledge with us. We had a great time!
