“A taste of PERú” –  Cooking Classes

Peruvian Food is typically divided into three main cuisines which we seek to demonstrate in the cooking classes, many people are not aware of the incredible diversity the various regions and climates create within Peruvian cuisine.

Chef Alejandro Saravia will take you on a Peruvian jouney, covering a broad cross section of dishes and through his fascinating world. He begins with covering the most outstanding species, native to Peru, such as the tubers –  the potato  with more than (2,000 varieties in Peru) and quinoa. They’re Peru’s legacy to the world. He will also show you different ways to experience these with stunning accompaniments such as fish or treated meat and showcase the Peruvian ancient systems. You’ll have a hands on experience learning of the nutritional benefits, techniques and delights of the world’s biggest gastronomy secret, Peruvian food.

Class will start with a complementary Pisco cocktail to set the mood and start enjoying Peruvian Flavours! Guest will receive “A taste of PERú” – Cooking Classes apron, a hand book with a brief explanation of Modern Peruvian Cuisine and the recipes.

Private classes and celebratory groups are all catered to.

See you at “A taste of PERú” – Cooking Classes!

    Hi there!
    I went to the Degustation night last October, and since then, I´m Peruvian food first fan! I was checking your web and I really like all the new projects at “A taste of PERú” and I would like to be part in some of them. I was wondering if is possible to do a private Peruvian cooking class. I would like to learn how to cook Quinoa, among other delicious dishes, and it seems like a good way to spend time with friends, while you are learning and tasting Peruvian food.
    Thanks so much.

    Hi Alejandro!

    Thank you for all the information, I already signed up on your web, cos I don’t wanna lose any of your events!

    I will keep you informed about the private cooking class, but just one thing about this,
    one of my friends is celiac and I know Quinoa is gluten free, but what about the rest of your menu?

    We are very interested in learn how to cook Quinoa.



    • alejandrosaravia says:

      Hi Pepa!

      For this class all our menu would be Celiac friendly and would have Quinoa as the main ingredient!

      Hope to see you on the 12th!

    Hola Alejandro,

    When are your next classes in Sydney and will u teahc how to make Causa?

      Hi Craig!!!

      We are organising two cooking classes for the Sydney International Good Food Festival, on Tuesday 5th and the 26th of October.

      We are going to be advertising them in a few weeks, but I can give you a preview. This time we would be teaching about wines and how to pair them with food, for that have invite the wine makers from Jed wines, and I will be teaching a few peruvian recipes that are bases on Quinoa as a main ingredient, so you would learn how to make a Causa with Quinoa as one of the dishes that we would cover on the day.

      Hope to see you there!

      Stay tune for more “A taste of Peru”

      Buen Provecho

    Hi… I have sadly noticed that your Peruvian cooking classes are booked out in Brisbane :(. Any plans to do another course????? Pllllllease? My Peruvian fiancee has just joined me in Brisbane and my last attempt at Causa was a disaster worse than Chernobyl! In fact, he has just told me it was not “Causa… it was something from out-of-space”!!! 😦 So you have just got to help me! My pride is on the line!!! (Or you can just come over and chat with Manolo for old times sake!!!! – and then cook dinner!) Ha ha! Thanks… Hope to hear you are coming back soon!

      Hi Debra:

      At the moment I don’t have any proposals to go to Brisbane, but I would be happy to go there with “A taste of Peru” – Cooking classes.

      What I can do for you now, is guide you through some peruvian recipes online, but you would have to tell me which dish would you like to start with!

      In my opinion I would like to start with the basics, way not trying Causa again! Let me know if you have the peruvian ingredients for this, and if not I can help you find some.

      Let me know what do you think, so we can start getting hands on with Causa!

      Stay tune for more “A taste of Peru” events.

      Buen Provecho

    Hola Alejandro

    Que bueno ver que la exquisitez de la comida peruana ha llegado a las costas australianas. Me mude aqui en el 2009 y me encantaria poder asistir a una de tus clases en Brisbane o de Gold Coast. Ojala tengas mas clases en esta area. Se me hace dificil cocinar aqui sin todos los ingredientes peruanos, y me pareceria interesante ver como los reemplazas o donde conseguirlos aqui.

    Buena suerte
