Learn more about Peruvian food with a home cooked Lima food tour that will teach you to prepare traditional recipes handed down over generations. Even if you’re a novice in the kitchen, we’ll have you whipping up a classic ceviche in no time. You’ll start the day at a local market to discover some Peruvian treasures (yes, we mean food — the best kind of treasures!). Explore a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, and fiery spices, and maybe make a purchase or two. From aji limo to aji mirasol and aji panca to cumin, plus the wonderful fresh limes, chirimoya, and lucuma fruits, this place really is a feast for your senses. Your Lima food tour takes you to the house of a local family, where the star is Doña Mechita, a caring Peruvian mother and the best cook in her family. She’ll share her family recipes and traditions with you in her home, and you’ll learn about culinary practices that reflect generations of local women. You’ll learn to prepare a classic ceviche, Peru’s national dish, made with fresh fish caught that day and a yummy mix of limes, onions, coriander and a few other secret ingredients. Doña Mechita will also teach you to prepare a delicious causa limeña made with potatoes, chilies, and lime to accompany your ceviche. And to round it all out, you’ll enjoy a pisco sour, with a demonstration on how to make them just right using an original recipe just for you.
