What you'll do

Welcome to my kitchen, in the most famous Inca city: Cusco. In this online cooking class, we will explore the flavors of Peru. You will learn how to make the national drink of Peru, Pisco Sour and one the most representative dishes of my country such as Ceviche.

During our class, I will share with you not only tips and kitchen shortcouts, but also information about Peruvian ingredients and food. Also, I will check on how everyone is doing in the group, so feel free to ask me any question you have. I want you to make the most of the class!

First, we will make the famous Pisco Sour, a delicious combination of pisco, lemon juice, egg white and syrup. Then, we will prepare the classic style of the popular Ceviche, and at the same time we will prepare the Nikkei style with mango. It will be nice to know which one you prefer after you taste it! Also, I will accommodate guests with dietary restrictions for sure!

I will be happy you can share your new talent, as a Peruvian chef, with your family and friends after this online experience.

I can also prepare other Peruvian dishes with you instead of Ceviche. We can cook Ají de Gallina + Causa Peruana, or Lomo Saltado. If you are interested in cooking them just let me know through a message, please.

Also, if you are looking for another schedule just contact me. In addition, we offer Experiences for private groups.

AMAZING!!! Second class with Jesus! He is such a talented chef and a great teacher! I learned the second most popular dish in Peru with Chinese Influence. It was delicious!!! He is super clear on his instructions and ingredient list. Everything can be done over and over on your own! Totally a hidden gem!!!

A wonderful class that was easy to follow along-pace of the chef was perfect! I also enjoyed the fun historical facts during the class. The Pisco Sour was tasty and ceviche was amazing! I also enjoyed how accommodating the Chef was to our group members who were working with vegetarian and shrimp options.

This was a fantastic experience. Chef Jesus definitely has this virtual cooking class thing down, and he was great at making everyone feel included and on the same page. I plan on having weekly Pisco Sour and ceviche nights going forward thanks to Chef Jesus!

HIDDEN GEM!!!! I have no words!!! the delicious food we made in such a short time and amazing drink - both National dish and national drink of Peru! Not only did I learn how to authentically make this - I also learned so much!!! This is one of the BEST CLASSES ON AIRBNB!!! (I have taken several!!) fantastic for large groups or solo!!! Get Pisco for the drink and use habanero for the ceviche (without seeds not very spicy at all)!!! WOW!!!
