Your host and chef Margaret, will take you through an experience focused on healthy food. It will start with her local market, where you’ll taste exotic fruits and discover amazing ingredients, learn about their benefits for health and how to cook them. Back to Margaret's home, you will get a hands-on cooking class in a friendly atmosphere, learn more about Peru’s super food, and share the delicious meal you prepared together. Influenced by her hometown Puerto Rico and in love with the food culture of Peru, where she’s lived for 15 years, Margaret integrates food sustainability and nutrition to Peruvian ingredients to recreate unique flavors with a healthy conscious. As a food&wellness educator and sustainable chef, she’s passionate about sharing her knowledge and creating food alternatives for traditional Peruvian dishes. We can adapt the menu to special diets (vegetarian, vegan, raw, gluten/lactose-free...) or even focus on therapeutic food ! (please specify with anticipation).
