Enjoy the best of Peruvian cuisine and learn all about delicious local ingredients by visiting a local market in Cuzco and joining a bespoke cooking class (prepare 4 delicious dishes) at the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas.
Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to master the art of preparing and cooking local specialties such as quinoa, tubers, alpaca meat and much more.
The cooking class begins with a visit to the nearby San Pedro "local market", where a local expert will introduce you to a wide range of indigenous produce. As part of the tour, you will buy the ingredients you need for your cooking class. Back at the hotel you are then given special access to their secret garden where, with your guide, you can discover many of the aromatic herbs used in Peruvian cuisine, not only today but since the time of the Incas.
Now your cooking class begins: don your special Belmond Palacio Nazarenas apron and chef’s hat—which you are welcome to take home with you as mementos of your stay—and meet your tutor, their resident chef. Afterwards they will send you the recipes for the dishes you created, which include step-by-step photo instructions so you can prepare these delicious treats at home.
They offer two courses a day at 10am and 11am on a private basis. There is a maximum of 10 guests per class.
