In this interactive demonstration you will learn about the history of Peru’s national dish while Nico Vera, our resident expert in Peruvian cuisine, teaches you the secrets to making a great ceviche. In addition to the classic ceviche, you will also learn how to cook a Nikkei variation, and how to use leche de tigre to spice up any ceviche. After the hands-on portion of the class, we will sit down for dinner to enjoy the ceviches we prepared and a traditional Peruvian mussel soup, served with bread, beer, and wine.
