A friend and I did the market tour and fruit tasting along with the Peruvian cooking class. I was over the moon with all the fruits that Peru had to offer. We did the class two days into our 2 week visit which helped a ton when it came to knowing what foods to order and things to buy from venders. The whole team at Sky Kitchen makes it easy to enjoy the process of cooking with out the not so fun stuff (doing dishes). The food was amazing and I cant wait to make it at home for family and friends.

Last day in Lima and Peru. We were picked up at the hotel by our teacher and we went to a local food market. We were shown around a number of stalls and talked through the different items on sale. The insights were really interesting. The offal stall was fascinating!

We then went to the kitchen where we had a tasting of numerous different fruits, many of which we had seen for sale in the market.

A bit later we were joined by one other couple (two American girls) and then proceeded to prepare and cook a great four course lunch which we ate after we made each course. Bit of a group effort but great fun all the same. We also made Pisco Sours which went down a treat.

Had the pleasure of Diana and Jose take our cooking course. As others have said, the food quality is amazing and very hard to pick a favourite food! Diana, thanks for showing me the tricks to ceviche!! Will definitely be trying it back in Australia. Thanks again

We had a good time here. The food is of good quality and prepared very hygienically. The view and location are great. The owners are very nice and know much about the food and local customs. The atmosphere was relaxed. Everything written before is true. So, why a lower rating?:

I would not be able to cook the 4 courses myself right away. As most things are prepared in advance and you only stir, squeeze or chop once every course, you don't really cook! This I found quite disappointing, as I was very willing to learn to cook Peruvian food myself. Ok, you get the recipes via mail afterwards, but the whole thing about a cooking class is that you are cooking it yourself, is my humble opinion. The recipes also exist out of a lot of different ingredients, some of which you cannot find at home.

So if you like a demonstration of a chef-cook and eat it with other tourists in a small group and a relaxing environment, this is the perfect place to be.

Hello N., Thank you for your review and also for your critique. We're sorry that you're disappointed somewhat. Most of the comments have been positive so far, but it is helpful for us to hear other opinions and we will rethink our concept. We tried to create a hands-on class and most of the time the participants will repeat what the chef does and prepare their own plates, or just follow our instructions. This is educational and interactive and not just a demonstration. It is true is that we wash all ingredients previously, portion some of them for each participant and also boil and peal some of the ingredients (e.g. potatoes), simple tasks that take a certain time. We think that participants can do this at home without further instructions. These preparations allow us to explain, prepare, and eat 4 dishes in 3 hours which many participants find an ideal time frame. Apart from that almost everything else will be done during the class, some of the chopping by the chef, but most of the tasks by the participants themselves. We're sorry that you did not have the impression to prepare the dishes yourself. We try to involve everybody in the class and the last thing we want is the class to be a demonstration where the chef does everything. Furthermore, not all of our participants are tourists, but - as in your class - we also attract people living in Peru and people on business trips who often share their experiences here. With respect to the ingredients it's true that the Peruvian cuisine uses more ingredients than other cuisines. In our standard classes we tried to choose dishes that are typical and popular and that do not require too many difficult to find ingredients. We also give tips where to find these ingredients or how some of them can be substituted. It's the unique combination of ingredients that makes the Peruvian cuisine so special. I'm sure with the knowledge and practice from the class you'll be able to recreate these dishes. Please try it out! If you have questions feel free to email or call us.

The food was really tasty and there was plenty of it, and the chefs were great, BUT: It was not as hands-on as I had hoped. A lot of the food and ingredients had been prepared in advance, so we were really just doing a bit of chopping and stirring. Our group of about 10 had two chefs helping us out, one in Spanish and one in English. I found this to be a bit confusing as I could understand both, and ended up listening to one and then the other and then back to the first one again...A good experience, but because of the fantastic reviews here on Tripadvisor I expected more...and because I love to cook I expected some "real" cooking.

We had a great time. We laughed and had fun learning from a master chef. After cooking and eating we were made to feel welcome sitting around chatting just like at a family get together. I had a negative attitude going in but left loving every minute.

Great experience. Cool people and some interesting concepts. We would go back.
We needed to see how Peruvian ceviche is different.

We had a wonderful time with Skykitchen Team. First day of reopening for them after 7month of lockdown, first cooking experience in Lima for us!
They take their time to explain you each ingredients, show you how to present, and enjoy your meal the most you can, and give you some tips about how to better prepare your meal.
Without talking about the fact that you learn a lot about Peruvian kitchen.
Really great time with them, we did not see the 3 hours pass (almost 4 as we took our time :) ).
Thank you again !

This cooking class and activities were one of the highlights of our visit to Lima. We started with a fascinating tour of the market and its many exotic foods, followed by a tasting of over 35 different fruits and then participated in cooking and eating Peruvian classics. Recipes provided so we can practice at home. A full, fun and entertaining day!

I have been to SkyKitchen Peru three times now, bringing various friends for the upbeat, colorful, friendly, really educational experience! I have taken the class in English and Spanish and heard it given in French and German. The ingredients are fresh, the hosts are extremely knowledgeable, and the class is always so personalized to the group they have at the moment. I've met some wonderful people there, and have now made the cause, the mushroom ceviche, the pisco sour, and the aji amarillo at home in Chicago. I also highly recommend the fruit tasting!
