Get to know some of Cusco's classic dishes and learn about the Peruvian way of life on this tour for your inner chef. Shop with locals at the market, learn traditional Inca cooking techniques, and sample the country's signature fruits and flavors as you learn to mix the iconic Pisco Sour.
Get started with a visit to the historic market of San Pedro for a look at the products used in local cuisine. Learn about ingredients like moraya, potatoes dehydrated with ancient Inca techniques. Next, learn to make chicha de jora, a traditional beverage that was considered sacred by the Inca. You can also learn about Peruvian symbols such as pucara bulls and try the delicious chicha morada, made from purple corn.
Now it's time to put your cooking and cocktail mixing skills to the test. Visit a cooking studio where a trained Peruvian chef shows you how to prepare some of the country's tastiest and most popular dishes. While you're at it, try your hand at mixing up that iconic Peruvian drink, Pisco Sour.
While you're in the kitchen, learn about the different kinds of pisco, the drink's history and defining characteristics, and explore the secrets of cooking with the produce from this corner of the world.
