Have you been enjoying the Peruvian cuisine and you’re now wondering how to prepare it? Are you looking for a fun activity but don’t have a lot of time left? Join our Workshop on Peruvian Cooking, it only takes two hours and you’ll learn how to prepare one typical Peruvian dish and a Pisco Sour! We offer several options like lomo saltado, ceviche, causa rellena, chaufa de quinua, ... But if you are a private group we can also teach you your favorite Peruvian plate!
We will pick you up from your accommodation and take you to the training facility center of the NGO called CEDNA. During the preparation, the group will learn everything about one typical dish and get a taste at the end. You’ll also prepare your own Pisco Sour or a Peruvian dessert if you prefer finishing with a sweeter touch. After the workshop we will bring you back to your hotel and we’ll give you the recipe booklet on paper and by email.
All the profit we make from our cooking activities goes to the social projects of CEDNA to support children with anemia and malnutrition, local farmers in rural areas, and trainings for single mothers and people with low income.
Solo travelers and couples can join other reservations to pay group price. Please contact email@example.com for a price quote.
CEDNA is a self-sustaining non-profit organization that promotes better socioeconomic conditions for the Peruvian people through equity and social inclusion. Using sustainable development and skill-based education, we aim to work with low-income children, adolescents, and adults to improve their quality of life.
The program first began in 2003 with a partnership between Dutch Cora Staats and Peruvian economist Alberto Carpio. The two, both passionate about the beautiful Cusco region, dreamed of of economically empowering local communities through sustainable, long-lasting techniques. Rather than providing handouts, they wanted to create opportunities for intelligent young Peruvians in low-income areas. The project grew out of support from the Cora and Alberto’s friend and family, and today runs various self-sustaining programs that work to diminish Childhood malnourishment, teach young adults important professional skills, and provide job opportunities to low-income single mothers.
Today, CEDNA invites visitors from around the world to their high quality kitchen-classroom, to learn how to cook like a local. The fun and engaging experience will not only teach you Peruvian cooking skills, but also help support the organization's continuing efforts toward improving lifes in the Cusco area.
