Today’s #FriFotos theme is #BOUNTIFUL, so I have decided to share a photo from an amazing cooking class that I took in Cuzco. I did not know this before my trip, but Peru is a top foodie destination, and I ate some of the best food of my life during my three weeks in the country. Thus, when I had a chance to take a cooking class, I went for it.
During the class, we tasted examples of Peruvian cuisine; prepared our own pisco cocktails; cooked causa (a national dish made with potatoes and chicken) and alpaca saltada (a type of stir-fry using alpaca meat instead of the typical beef); and, sat down as a group to feast on what we had prepared.
First, though, we learned about the history of Peruvian food, and this stockroom featuring dried produce from all around Peru was our classroom. It was incredible to hear about, see, touch, smell, and (most of all) taste the dizzying array of diverse food products in Peru!
