A warm and worldly soul, Brisa will introduce you to traditional Peruvian gastronomy. Brisa (her name means 'breeze') is a traveler and nature-lover and has worked as a professional chef, as well as an interior designer, photographer, and educator. She now puts her culinary knowledge and passion for wellness to work by teaching about Peruvian food and organizing yoga and mindfulness retreats. She is well versed in Peru's vast range of culinary traditions and will teach you about a variety of ingredients from the coast, the Andes, and amazon. Her cooking is modern and takes influences from three of Peru's best known culinary styles: criolla ('creole', home-style Peruvian food which is a mix of Spanish, indigenous and African cooking), nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian), and chifa (Chinese-Peruvian). Brisa hosts at her mother's beautiful, art-filled apartment in Barranco which boasts a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Join Brisa for a meal of modern Peruvian dishes cooked with traditional ingredients and techniques that showcase the essence of Peruvian gastronomy. You might taste dishes like ceviche (fresh fish cured in citrus sauce), steamed fish in Amazonian leaves called bijao, and desserts like a lúcuma fruit mousse and fresh cacao straight from the pod. If you book a cooking experience, Brisa can offer either a demonstration or a hands-on cooking class, during which she will show you how to prepare several dishes that showcase local, seasonal Peruvian ingredients. You will cook together for about an hour before you sit down to enjoy the meal. Brisa also offers an optional market tour add-on of the local market in Miraflores where she will introduce you to seasonal Peruvian ingredients. Please note, Brisa can tailor the menu to a wide range of dietary needs including vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten-free, so be sure to note in your booking if you have any special requests. Also please note alcohol is included in the experience cost.
