Cinthia is an English translator by profession and the one thing she enjoys most about her job is getting to know people from different cultures. She learned to cook at home from her family, who will also join you during your experience. Cinthia’s cousin is actually a professional chef and will join her whenever she is available - it is a delight to watch her in the kitchen, demonstrating her cooking skills! One of the best things about the experience with Cinthia is that it is a family affair and her extended family joins in the merriment! Cinthia is eager to share her Peruvian culture through its food history. Your private, authentic Peruvian dining experience will be a unique experience where you get to spend time with a local family over a delicious meal. Cinthia lives in a lovely house in a gated community not far from Lima's main tourist area. After you enjoy a welcome drink and chat with the family you will join them at their dining table for a traditional Peruvian meal. This will give you the opportunity to try authentic dishes that locals eat on an everyday basis. A few dishes that you might try are lomo saltado (a popular traditional Peruvian dish of stir-fried, marinated strips of sirloin with onions and tomatoes, typically served with rice and french fries), causa rellena (a layered potato and chicken dish) and lucuma caramel (traditional caramel pudding). If you book a cooking experience, join Cinthia and some of her family in their large, open kitchen and learn to prepare two authentic Peruvian dishes from scratch. The hands-on cooking lesson lasts 1-2 hours, after which you will sit down with Cinthia and her family to enjoy the meal you helped prepare. Cinthia also offers and optional market tour add-on during which you can enjoy a tour of the local Mercado El Eden market, a 5-10 minute drive from her home. Please note this is a very authentic family experience and multiple family members will be present for your experience; this is a chance to enter a local Peruvian family and enjoy traditional home-cooking like a local!
