Come and join one of our small and intimate Peruvian cooking classes, where our team of chefs will open the doors of their Miraflores home, and you can spend the morning or afternoon cooking up a storm in their outdoor garden kitchen.
Our Head Chef Hector Aguilar Valle has spent many years of his life as an accomplished chef in a number fine dining and Michelin Star restaurants located around world which include France, Spain, USA, Asia and Australia. Having been away from Peru for a number of years, Hector not only missed home, but strongly desired to share many Peruvian delicacies with the world. This inspired his idea for the Peruvian Cooking Classes, where he now offers people the chance to learn about the delights of Peruvian cuisine in an enjoyable and entertaining class.
The cooking classes are unique in the way that they are delivered. Expect to laugh a lot over pisco sours, whilst you discuss the unique history behind Peruvian cuisine and sharpen your culinary skills by cooking your menu of choice. The Peruvian cooking classes are a perfect way to spend the day eating, drinking and soaking up Peruvian culture in Lima.
We were lucky enough to have gotten space with another couple last minute to take Hector's cooking class. He is an amazing chef with amazing stories and an incredible background. We thoroughly enjoyed learning the new cooking techniques and recipes, as well as eating the delicious food!!
It was an amazing experience, i lived in hector`s house, in the airport received me an Hector`s driver, in the house was an assistant chef (Domingo), who always help us in the classes, Hector taked me to Lima market where we bought the octopus, he gived me an excelent ceviche class. The food was excellent. And he guided me about best places to eat and travel, including Ica (Per?). Without forgetting his human quality.
