The joy of tasting traditional Peruvian food in our home.

Eating new and unfamiliar foods is one of the great joys of traveling and a wonderful way to explore a different culture. Danmar & Aaron open the doors of their house and kitchen so that you can enjoy the typical Peruvian cuisine.

Peru is becoming known around the world for its products and cuisine. The people who lived in Lima in 100 BC used to worship the sharks and the Pacific Ocean was their major food resource. Today, Peru grows around 500 different kinds of potatoes, while asparagus and quinoa cereal are exported around the world.

In this tour we will visit local market to show you the ingredients Danmar will use at the kitchen. We will taste new flavors, maybe an exotic fruit of the season or even stop for a craft beer. Afterward, you will be a witness of how Danmar will prepare the dishes. Also, you will learn how to mix a perfect Pisco Sour. Then we sit, enjoy a traditional Peruvian the meal.
