    Amazing
    We did this class with 5 people and it was wonderful. The market tour was excellent and we learned a lot about local ingredients and customs. All 4 dishes we prepared were excellent, and we learned a ton about the culture and all of the ingredients we were using. Alvaro is an excellent teacher and helped all 5 of us achieve great food, and beautiful plates! Cannot recommend enough.

    Great experience!
    We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend. It starts at San Pedro market and Alberto explains lots about fresh produce and Peruvian traditions. The studio is a lovely setting for the class and all ingredients are freshly prepared and good quality. We made a cocktail and a 3 course meal which was amazing!

    Amazing time learning and cooking!
    Alvaro is was an amazing teacher! He showed us around San Pedro Market and told us about Peruvian food and what items are unique and staples. We then went to the studio to make our delicious Lunch. I would recommend everyone take this class if you visit Cusco.

After 1,5 weeks of visiting Lima, Arequipa and Machu Picchu, we were looking for some local activities in Cusco. The cooking class was the perfect option to get to know the city and the people from a culinary point of view.

We started with an interesting tour on the San Pedro Market. Our guide, Alvaro, gave us a lot of insights about the local food offerings and traditions.

After that, we started at the Taste location with a Pisco Sour course, followed by an amazing cooking class.
Alvaro was the perfect chef, we learned some facts about the Peruvian kitchen, history and traditions. But most importantly, we had a lot of fun!

All in all it was the perfect activity between all the stunning nature and cultural highlights of Peru.

Highly recommend! Alvaro really made this experience special for my 11 and 14 year old daughters and me. He was very entertaining as he guided us through the market teaching us about Peruvian foods and culture. The cooking experience was easy, fun, and the food was delicious. Alvaro was a great instructor and has a fun sense of humor that entertained our group of all ages. I would definitely do this again.

Aludro was an excellent guide and host in the local market and in the kitchen. His knowledge and expertise was very helpful, not just in the choosing, preparation and cooking of local produce, but also with techniques. I have learnt so much in this class and look forward to trying my new skills in my own kitchen!

What a wonderful, tasteful experience, I met Alvaro who took me around the market explaining all the different foods, their backgrounds and uses which was very insightful. We then cooked our way through the rest of the morning/afternoon which was lots of fun, tasty mouth watering dishes prepared and eaten. I learnt so much from Alvaro and will definitely be preparing Ceviche, Mushroom Quinoa risotto and a few Pisco's from home. Muchas Gracias Alvaro

Chef Alvaro was so awesome and friendly. The tour of the San Pedro market was informative and just enough information for to feel excited to come back to shop. Then we went to the cooking station where we learned how to create art from food. We made an appetizer, main dish and dessert. We also started off the cooking class learning how to make a passion fruit pisco sour. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to have a relaxing afternoon or evening. The cooking faculty was very clean and warm. Made us feel like we were home. We will miss Chef Alvaro and his friendly smile.

My husband and I turned out to be the only ones who booked the class on April 10. We were greeted by Alvaro at San Pedro market where we were given a tour and bought ingredients for a delicious dinner to make.

After a week of eating delicious Peruvian food we decided it was time to learn how to make it. Could not have found a better class! Alvaro is an absolute gem. He truly loves what he does and sharing Peruvian cuisine with visitors. It’s amazing being in the kitchen with him and learning from watching an artist at work

Alvaro was a fantastic guide and Chef.

The three hours we spent with Alvaro were great.

Walk through San Pedro was informative and the food we made was delicious!

We were very interested in learning how to make Ceviche and we were not disappointed. Absolutely deliciosa!!!

Bit of a history lesson on the Pisco Sour was also nice!

Can't recommend enough, great way to spend a few hours in Cusco and a delicious peruvian lunch eaten!!!

Wow! Chef Alvaro was wonderful! We started with a tour of the local market with explanations about local ingredients. We picked some things up and then walked to the studio. The class was super enjoyable and the food was delicious! I can’t wait to experiment with these recipes back home!
