Know More about this tour

Learn more about Peruvians (and Peruvian food!) with a home cooked Lima food tour that will teach you to prepare traditional recipes handed down over generations. Even if youre a novice in the kitchen, well have you whipping up a classic ceviche in no time.

This Lima food tour takes you to a local family home in Chorrillos (south of Barranco and Miraflores). But before you go, youll stop at a local market to discover some Peruvian treasures (yes, we mean food the best kind of treasures!). Explore a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, and fiery spices, and maybe make a purchase or two. From aji limo to aji mirasol and aji panca to cumin, plus the wonderful fresh limes, chirimoya, and lucuma fruits, this place really is a feast for your senses.

Next, youll travel like a local and take a city bus to Chorrillos in the south corner of Lima, a residential neighbourhood free from touristy traps. Your Lima food tour takes you to the house of a local family, where the star is Doa Mechita, a caring Peruvian mother and the best cook in her family. Shell share her family recipes and traditions with you in her home, and youll learn about culinary practices that reflect generations of local women.

Youll learn to prepare a classic ceviche, Perus national dish, made with fresh fish caught that day and a yummy mix of limes, onions, coriander, and a few other secret ingredients. Youll also try a surprisingly good Maracuya drink. Never heard of it? This passion fruit drink is typical of Lima and is one of the most consumed beverages by limeos. Doa Mechita will also teach you to prepare a delicious causa limea made with potatoes, chilies, and lime to accompany your ceviche. And to round it all out, youll enjoy a pisco sour, with a demonstration on how to make them just right using an original recipe just for you.

For Peruvians, sharing cuisine represents more than just eating it represents knowledge, tradition, home life, and, of course, fun. So fancy learning how Peruvians cook? Theres no place like home to start.
