This 9-day trip from Culture Xplorers will provide you with one unique experience after the next.
While the world is talking about the Lima restaurant scene, you’ll be invited on the inside, to experience this culinary phenomenon alongside some of its most innovative players.
You’ll accompany one of Lima’s top chefs to forage along the coast for items that will be on your menu that same afternoon. You’ll visit a morning fish market with members of the Barra Lima team, then return to the restaurant to enjoy your selection along with an ‘omakase’ tasting menu at the chef’s table, prepared and presented by Chef John Evans Ravenna himself.
In the Sacred Valley, you’ll walk through fields of organic grains, tubers and vegetable crops, and along Inca trails, all the while learning about the region’s endemic ingredients and how this relates to local communities, culture and traditions. At the mysterious crop circles of Moray, spend the afternoon with the team at Virgilio Martinez’s magnificent destination restaurant, MIL in Moray, enjoying a signature tasting menu and contemplating the stunning natural environment which makes this one of the world’s most memorable dining experiences.
In addition to superlative food experiences throughout the trip, you’ll get an off-the-beaten-path look at the art and architecture of Lima and of course enjoy an in-depth exploration of the UNESCO World Heritage wonder of Machu Picchu. And we’ll balance your active daytime adventures with sublime, 5-star boutique lodging at night. From start to finish, this will be an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind adventure you’ll gleefully reflect upon for years.
