Peruvian Flavor Cooking Class
Ceviche (a raw seafood appetizer) is a staple food in Peru. The dish is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers. It is like a South American twist on Japanese sushi. We had ceviche at almost every meal during our trip and absolutely fell in love with this local dish. So we were excited to how to make ceviche with Peruvian Flavors Cooking Class. Interestingly, ceviche is not raw but freshly cooked in salt and lime juice. We also learned how to cook a main dish called Lomo Saltado Alpaca - stired fried alpaca chunks with onions, tomatoes, and native potato fries (sounds really fancy right?). Chef Arthur taught us some "top-chef" cooking skills such as Flambé.
