Try Gourmet Peruvian cuisine with a Local in the Sacred Valley of Urubamba

Join Diego in his outdoor kitchen where he will show you how to make classic Peruvian dishes like ceviche (fresh fish cured in citrus juice), lomo saltado (marinated beef sirloin, sautéed with onions, peppers and fried potatoes), tacu tacu (rice and roasted beans), papa la huancaína (potatoes with a spicy, savory sauce), causa rellena (potato puree garnished with yellow aji sauces and lemon, stuffed with onion, avocado and tuna) or arroz chaufa (sautéed rice with green onions and sesame seeds, a chifa (Chinese-Peruvian) dish). You will learn how to properly cut the fish for the ceviche and how to carefully balance the flavors, and he will teach you some of his favorite cooking tricks. 

Diego can demonstrate how to cook the dishes, or you can have a hands-on lesson. Just let them know your preferences! What better way to learn about a country's culture and cuisine than to cook with its locals?
