“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We reserved this time based on reviews on trip adviser. And
they were right. The three of us, 78,45 and 5 years old took
part in the cooking! And we loved it. The chef was interesting
and explained the process. It was a happy three hours! Highly
recommend it.

“Friendly, even-paced, authentic”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Did a market trip first, then cooked the food later. They could use more cooking space, as it took a while for all 8 of us to use one gas range. Beautiful outdoor kitchen though, with time in-between to eat dishes and socialize with the group.

“Loved it”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I totally recommend this experience while in Arequipa. The value was great because you basically get two meal and the cooking lesson for what you'd pay for one decent dinner out (45/sols or about $15USD.) The food was delicious and fun to learn to make. The courtyard was beautiful and it's a lovely outdoor (covered) cooking area.

We did not do the market tour, but the cooking and pisco sour making classes were excellent. Also a lovely hotel to stay in.
