Great experience, Arrive hungry!

Cooking classes help you learn about the culture of the place you are visiting and this was no exception. The market tour was very informative and fun. We learned about and tasted a lot of local foods while we were shopping for our meal. The cooking class was not too involved and you get all of the recipes at the end. Jesus did a wonderful job leading the experience. Make sure to arrive hungry!!

We enjoye the experience with Chef Jesus very much. He spoke very good english and was super knowledgable about the peruvian cuisine and the history of it. The hands on cooking was super fun. I'll admit that I did this mostly because my wife wanted to do it, but I ended up having just as much fun. I would definitley do it again.

This experience was the second favorite adventure in Peru (behind Machu Picchu). Jesus was a great teacher. We spent about an hour in the market, then headed to his studio, where two ladies were waiting to help prep and clean all the veggies and fruits we just bought. My group of 8 (age 14 to 78) are all vegetarians, so we made mango ceviche, virgin pisco sour, quinoa tamales, and more. I highly recommend this experience if visiting Cusco!

San Pedro market

The selection of the ingredients for the meals at San Pedro market was quite illuminating. We walked through the food stalls in the market as Chef Jesús Alexander discussed the unique varieties of fruits and vegetables that were produced only in Perú.

Must-Do Cooking Class!

This experience was one of my favorite international cooking classes I have ever taken. Chef Jesús led a super informative tour of the market, answering any questions we had about markets and even giving recommendations for foods and stalls we should try later! The cooking class itself was absolutely stellar. The lesson space itself is clean and modern, and the instruction was clear and easy to follow, even with no cooking experience. The food came out absolutely delicious - it may have even been our best meal in Cusco! But what was perhaps even better than the stellar food was the conversation we had with Chef Jesús the whole time. He was very warm and friendly, answering any questions we had about the food, Peruvian culture, and his own career as a chef. Cannot recommend this experience more!

The market experience was really good. We went in the middle of covid so things were quiet and our guide was really good at showing all the bits we would not have known about had we gone alone. The cooking was amazing. Jesus is a wonderful chef and great people person. Wonderful English too.
