Looking back at our time spent in Cusco, amongst a two day trek up to Rainbow Mountain, seeing Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley for the first time, we rate our experience with Jose / Marcelo Batata Culinary Experiences right up there next to everything else. Where else can you be taught how to handle a flaming wok while sipping on... More

From the moment we walked in, got the history of the Peruvian culture, what makes the Peruvian cuisine so unique this experience just kept getting better and better. We made a delicious ceviche, a pisco sour tasting and ended the day with Lomo saltado. Amazing. We all got to do everything ourselves and the 4 hours flew by. I had... More

日本語のレビューは下に。 We really enjoyed to learn how to cook the Peruvian cuisine including ceviche. The instructor is really nice and wonderful person, and taught us Peruvian food amazingly. Even though you don't have any experiences to cook before, don't worry just have fun! You will be great Peruvian chef after 5 hours cooking class! ペルーのクスコで、高山病になり、いまいち歩き回らない中、発見したのがこの料理教室。これなら動き回らなくても楽しめる!英語での授業を受けましたが、先生はとても気さくな方で、料理経験が乏しい私でも充分付いていけるクラスでした。ペルー料理の歴史から、特徴まで丁寧に解説、実践を通じ教えてくれてクスコに来たなら是非おすすめしたいアクティビティです!またピスコでのカクテルの作り方も教えてくれるのでお酒好きの方にもおすすめです。
