We really enjoyed the food, and chef Jesus is great! If you come to Cuzco, you must have this class in your itinerary...

My daughter and I had a wonderful time with Jesus. He took us to San Pedro Market and showed us around the market while he bought food for our cooking class. Then we walked back to his cooking studio and we made Pisco Sours, three kinds of ceviche, quinoa tamales with cheese, potatoes and vegetables and this amazing dessert with lucama and cherimoya.

It was my daughter's favorite part of all of Peru!

Incredible! Great tour of the market with samples of local eats. The food recipes were easy to follow and delicious! I look forward to recreating they at home for friends and family. Coveted everything from a classic take on a Pisco cocktail to local fruit dessert. The best class I’ve taken abroad.

Chef Christian was by far one of the coolest people I met in this trip. Our first stop was el Mercado San Pedro, Cuscos main market. A must visit if you are curious how locals get their groceries and other goods! Then we prepared multiple Peruvian dishes with the ingredients we got at el Mercado San Pedro. Such as, Ceviches, tiraditos etc.
