About the tour

Peruvians are proud of their mixed traditions, culture and food, being the Afro-peruvian culture one of the most beloved and recognized in our nation . The forced immigration of African slaves to Peru in the 16th century started one of the saddest chapters of the history of this country, and at the same time made possible the integration of culinary techniques , new recipes and an explosion of flavors never seen before . In todays class we will celebrate the Afro-peruvian heritage of Peru with two very traditional dishes. Lets start! Note: these are not vegetarian recipes , for sensitive people about animal products we advise seeing the list of ingredients before joining.
