The experienced chef Gonzalo
Carbajal welcomes us to his kitchen, eager to share his vast
knowledge on Peruvian Cuisine, its history and native ingredients;
and teaches us special tips to give dishes a special homemade
touch. Each guest has their own cooking space, equipped with
all the utensils needed for our cooking adventure.
The class begins with a tasting
of our Peruvian national drink - Pisco. Everybody in the class
loosens up a little by the tastes and aromas of the Pisco, and
learns how to make the famous Pisco Sour. After cheering and
choosing the best Pisco Sour of the class, we all take our places
ready to start preparing our Peruvian meal.
We start with a dish that has
conquered the most refined palates in the world - the traditional
ceviche - made with fresh fish, limes and a touch of yellow
The second dish is the very
traditional causa. Served often as an appetizer, causa features
either tuna fish or chicken (usually) sandwiched in between layers
of mashed yellow potato.
The third dish is the delicious
Lomo Saltado, another very traditional Peruvian dish that has
taken the influences of Chinese food. Made by stir-frying
beef, tomatoes, and onions, the lomo saltado is served with rice
and French fries.
As the cherry on top, end this
culinary experience with a dessert made of lucuma, a delicious
creamy fruit native to Peru. In between each dish you may
share and taste each other's dishes, enjoying the delights you are
step of the class, our chef Gonzalo teaches us about the origins
and special cooking techniques used for every dish, immersing us
in the amazing culinary culture of a country that has developed a
national feeling of proud and unity by its millenary gastronomy.
To finalize, chef Gonzalo
surprises us with a very special souvenir: Peruvian seasonings
needed to prepare most Peruvian dishes and gives us the recipes to
try making them at home.
More than a cooking class, this
is a truly food and drink Peruvian experience that combines
history, gastronomy, and the warmth of Peruvian people.
