Ollantina cooks Irma and Tina have joined forces to teach Peruvian home cooking. Join one of these two teachers in her home to prepare some of Peru’s most beloved dishes. The class begins with a quick tour of the colorful Ollantaytambo market where you'll learn all about local foods and how best to choose them. You will then head to your teacher's home and prepare a traditional drink, appetizer, and main course to enjoy together at their table. After your stomach is full you will be sent on your way with a small recipe book of Peruvian dishes, the secrets to which have been generously shared by Irma and Tina.
