We had an amazing time at the cooking class. Despite being out last day- we learned SO MUCH about history and gastronomy. As a heads up- it's pretty light on the actual technical "cooking" portion as things were provided pre-cut, measured, and prepared. Still a great chance to learn about the history of Peru and people. A little light on the amount of food for the price in my opinion. Would still recommend the class/experience to other travelers~

This is the first review I've written on TA, but still one month after the experience, I feel compeled to do so. What an amazing experiece. That may sound exaggerated, but I really a brilliant day. I don't consider myself a serious foodie, however, I have done other cooking classes in Hanoi, Vietnam and Penang, Malaysia which were rated amongst the top things to do there, and this was better! I had no idea Peru was one of the top food destinations in the world. I now know why.

Chef Ebelin (Pocahontas) was awesome and gave us a real insight into Peruvian, Andean and Inca culture through her Passion for cooking. The food was incredible and a good part of the class was dedicated to Pisco tasting and experimenting with different mixes of infused Pisco.

The price seemed excessive at first but proved more than reasonable at the end of the day.

Forget Machu Pichu, just do this class!

Chef Ebelin is the greatest Chef of all time. The class was absolutely fun. We learned a lot...about food, cooking, history and culture. The appetizers were delicious and the food that we prepared was also very good. I highly recommend this event. I also recommend skipping lunch and eating a light breakfast beforehand.

Did a cooking class with the owner - included a trip to the local market, how to make a drink, appetizer, and main dish. Very well done and very tasty! The restaurant is beautiful and the roof top terrace is a place I could chill for hours.

Chef Alejandro is a passionate advocate for Peru - this comes through his careful explanations, thoughtful answers to questions, patience and high quality ingredients. It is a cookery class making two of the most popular dishes (ceviche and Lomo Saltado), cocktail making session (and drinking), fruit tasting, and explanations behind the ingredients. This takes place whilst being brought delicious morsels from the on-site restaurant. It isn’t the cheapest cookery workshop but we were there about three and a half hours and being guided and taught by someone who obviously cares so much about food and Peru, is well worth it. Just don’t mention Chile!

This class was a perfect mix of understanding how Peruvian cuisine has developed ( a little bit of history) and fabulous cooking and tasting . We did this as a family and we all really enjoyed it ,it was a perfect length of time and the content was really good. I also liked how particular the chef was about hygiene as we cooked and how we learnt about the market ingredients

The cooking class was very informational, they explain you a lot of the history of food in Peru and how it was evolved into what it is today. I have done other cooking classes before in the past and I feel like while they are explaining the history they can also have everyone prepare the ingredients needed for the plates that are done in class rather than have everything precut and ready for the class. In the class they mention that they don't take people to the market because it is not clean but the market in Cusco not only is in walkable distance to the class but also one of the cleanest markets I have seen in Central / South America. They have a market in the restaurant but it is for demonstration purposes only; I think they should make it a real market for the students to pick the ingredients for the class that way it adds more value to it. At the end of the class we all didn't feel like the price paid was worth it and they put too much emphasis on having all the bills super crips and they can't even have the regular wallet-middle-bill-rip. If they can't have "damaged" dollars then they should accept other payments methods other than cash.

We just did this cooking class while in Cusco and the dishes we made were delicious. We had a different instructor than it looks like most of the reviewers had, but she was nice and made the class fun.

The only thing that was a little weird for us was that during the fruit tastings they had us pass one plate down (there were 8 people in the class total) and use personal spoons to spoon out fruit and put it in our mouths instead of having a serving spoon to place the fruit on a personal plate. So by the time the fruit got to me and my husband at the very end, a whole lot of spoons that had been in strangers mouths had already dipped into what we were eating. It was a little unpleasant.

We treated our 21 year old daughter to this cooking class as a birthday present. It's not just a cooking class; you learn about all different types of Peruvian food and drink. While you are learning, you are given samples of wonderful appetizers from the Marcelo Batata restaurant. Evelyn was a really good teacher; she was fun and the small class (about 8 of us) got along well. We made ceviche, pisco sours, and lomo saltado. At the end of the class, we all sat down to eat our meal. This class was fun and filling; we would highly recommend this as something different to do while in Cuzco.

One of the pricer things we did on our backpacking tour, but this was worth it. Good deviation from the typical sites.
