Experience the Peruvian High Life
Peruvian Dancing Horses & Farm Visit/ Author’s Fusion Dinner
Peruvian Dancing Horses & Farm Visit (Culinary & Cultural Excursion). We will spend the day at a operating ranch where you will see an exhibition of the dance of the Peruvian Paso horses and take a short class on how to ride these horses for those with equestrian experience and interest. The non-horseman will be able to continue the tour in dune boogies or horse drawn carriages. The excursion includes touring a working lucuma farm which grows the “lucuma” fruit, native only to Peru and great for Ice creams and desserts, a working olive farm, a fig farm and then ends at the beach as we enjoy a famous Pacific sunset.
Author’s Fusion Dinner: Rafael Osterling creates each and every dish as if he is creating a piece of art. His cuisine is not defined by any style and is only influenced by the quality of the product he finds in each place he has a restaurant. His dishes are incredibly creative but always respecting the ingredients as he always points out. The result is a mind- blowing taste and presentation that will make you experience new and creative ways to eat popular ingredients.
Market Visit & Fruit Festival / Make your own Ceviche / Pisco night & Amazon Fusion dinner
Market Visit & Fruit Festival: Start your day with a visit to the Main market to purchase all of the food and ingredients for the class. This market is informal and a great way to experience a little bit of the Peruvian culture in its daily life. In the Main Market you can find the best variety of vegetables and fruits in the country, including exotic products from the "Andes" and the "Jungle". In all Peruvian markets, "el regateo" is a common practice "asking for a discount and negotiating the price for the product with each vendor" people even ask for a "Yapa" something for free with your purchase, one extra lime or one extra potato. We will also have the change to taste many of the exotic fruits that Peru offers.
Mission: Make your own Ceviche. More than an activity, this is your secret mission: Your mission starts at the market; we will give you the recipe, ingredient list and money, which you will use to buy all your supplies to make your ceviche (don’t worry if you don’t speak Spanish, this is part of the fun). After this, you will continue with the preparation (short explanation of the process is optional for the beginners). Are you ready?
Pisco Tasting & Amazon Fusion Dinner at Malabar Restaurant: Pisco is Peru’s national drink and liquor so versatile that can be drunk alone or mixed with fruits from which we make amazing “Pisco Martinis”. You will learn to prepare these new, trendy pisco-based drinks with exotic fruits in addition to the traditional Pisco Sour. Tasting good Pisco is like tasting wine; you will be able to learn about the different grapes and grape combinations that are used in the preparation of Pisco through a guided tasting by an expert sommelier. Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino will present his new cuisine using jungle ingredients.
