This was a great experience and a great way to spend an evening in Cusco. We wandered around the market and then walked to the culinary institute. Our chef Jesus was great.

This was one of the best things we did in Cusco! We were lucky enough to have a one-on-one class with Jesus, and were able to ask him all sorts of questions about Peruvian cuisine. We loved going through the market and exploring it with a local chef, and everything we made during the class was top notch. I would highly recommend Jesus and this class to anyone considering a cooking class in Cusco!

Peruvian Cooking Course

It was an amazing experience. We were lucky enough to have a one on one with Jesus. The trip through the market was very informative, interesting and we came back the next day to have lunch there. We have done many cooking classes overseas and I believe this to be the best to date. The kitchen where we cooked a 4 course meal was VERY clean and tidy. A meat dish would of been nice on the menu but the 3 varieties of fish cerviche together with the potato and quinoa dishes were very filling but the dessert by far won the day. Jesus spoke fluent English and was both funny, informative and a great host. The Pisco Sour was great introduction. We would definitely recommend this course as value for money.

This cooking class is a must! We first visited the San Pedro market and had a great time tasting all kinds of produce. We then took some of the fresh food with us to the class and made some incredibly delicious yet simple dishes. This class isn't just about food though - there's no better way to learn about a local culture than through its cuisine.

Exciting and authentic snapshot of Peruvian cuisine

My sister and I wanted a unique way to experience Peruvian cuisine, and this cooking class with Jesus delivered just that. Jesus taught us about each ingredient we used and the cultural context of each dish we made. He was friendly, relaxed, and very knowledgeable. The food (three entrees and a dessert) came out delicious and I’m looking forward to trying it at home!

Even though I hate cooking, my husband loves it so I decided to surprise him with this class. We enjoyed everything about it - from the extensive tour of the market to the cooking instruction to the actual food and drink itself. We (i.e. my husband) are excited to try some of the recipes when we get back home.

Loved this cooking class with Jesus! We were lucky enough to have a private class at 9am. Jesus was a great guide through the local market (which would have been overwhelming and confusing without him) and he gave great cooking tips and tricks while teaching us how to cook traditional Peruvian dishes. He also gave great information about Cusco, Peru, and had entertaining stories. Would do it again in a minute!

Highly recommended! I ended up getting an one on one private class with Jesus. The market tour was informative and the cooking class was fun!
