You’ll learn how to prepare a classic ceviche, which is Peru’s national dish, made with fish and a tasty mix of limes, onions, coriander and a few other secret ingredients. Even if you’re a novice in the kitchen, we’ll have you whipping up a classic ceviche in no time.
You’ll also get a lesson in pisco, a famous spirit from Peru’s coastal region. Learn about the different kinds and about the distillation process – then prepare your very own pisco sour cocktail.
For Peruvians, sharing cuisine and drinks represents more than just eating, it represents knowledge, tradition, home life and, of course, fun. Fancy learning more about Peru? There’s no place like home to start!
