Lima, the capital of modern Peruvian cuisine and the #1 gastronomical destination in the world, is the first stop on your Peruvian culinary journey. Balance your time between visits to the city sites and excursions into the culinary landscape.

While here, experiences range from the hands-on to the luxurious and refined. Go shopping with a local chef for ingredients to prepare your own authentic meal, and have a lesson at the Cordon Bleu cooking school with the future pioneers of Peruvian dining. Additionally, taste pisco and wine over lunch in a vineyard south of the bustling city. Then return to its center to be hosted at the dinner table by the family of Casa Aliaga, the oldest colonial mansion in South America.

Ker & Downey can also secure reservations at the top restaurants in the world, such as Central, Maido, Kjolle, and Astrid y Gaston.
