Lima

Today you visit one of Lima's symbolic markets to see the amazing variety of fish, fruit, and vegetables used in Peruvian food. You will be equipped with a list of names and descriptions of foods you will encounter to help appreciate the visit even more. Then watch and learn as chefs from famous local restaurants demonstrate how to prepare Peru's most famous dishes. Learn how to make an exquisite ceviche or famous Lomo Saltado (sauteed tenderloin strips and French fries). Rounding out this culinary experience is a delicious lunch.

The afternoon is free to prepare for another sumptuous tasters menu meal at the Amor Amar restaurant.

Located in the trendy, Bohemian district of Barranco, Amor Amar is situated on the grounds of a converted courtyard, behind a large wall. The decor of Amor Amar is an appealing mix of contemporary style and an open-air atmosphere with a touch of nature. The more interesting part of the menu are the other dishes; the several dozen original plates and appetizers that showcase Sacilotto's range that dabbles in southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, and Argentinean gauchos. There's Duck Magret served with an Aji Amarillo risotto. The underutilized and delicious Charela, a seabass from the north of Peru, is found throughout the menu. A wood-burning oven that slow roasts suckling goat and lamb. Desserts are a strong point here. There are house made ice creams and sorbets of mostly native flavors.
