We went to the Cusco culinary cooking class and made our own dinner. I would happily recommend this to anyone who has any culinary interest. We started with Pisco Sour cocktails. Apparently a bartender didn’t have any whisky for a whisky sour and subbed a local super strong wine. We had one made with traditional ice cubes and two done with frozen juice cubes.
Next came the appetizer, Causa which is chopped chicken salad and sliced avocado sandwiched between two layers of mashed potatoes built in a mold.
- Unfortunately, Phil developed altitude sickness and she didn’t make it through the whole thing. She went and lay down after making the appetizer. We made the main course which was quinoa risotto and lomo saltados (beef stir fry). We flambéed the beef cubes
Then added tomatoes, red peppers, onions and cilantro. It was delicious.
We finished off with a fruit mousse.
Great meal and fun making it ourselves.
The meal looks so scruptious. What a great way to learn about the local food.
