Peruvian cuisine has been recognised as one of the great cuisines of the world with a history that goes back thousands of years. Drawing on a great variety of local ingredients from the Pacific coast, the Andes and the Amazon and combined with influences from Spain, Japan, China and Africa throughout history, Peruvian cooking is an explosion of flavours, never to be forgotten. The making and eating of one of Peru's most iconic dishes, ceviche (marinated fish in lime juice), was added to the 2023 UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage– this class is the perfect opportunity to experience a piece of the vibrant, rich culture of Peru.

This class covers some of the most iconic Peruvian dishes including ceviche, as well as Aji de Gallina (creamy spicy chicken) Solterito salad, and Huancaina Sauce (yellow chilli cheese sauce).

  • Refreshments on arrival and available throughout the class

Fabricio Cano studied culinary arts in his hometown of Lima, Peru where he also worked in a number of Peruvian restaurants where he developed his passion for fine food.

After moving to Europe, he worked in Michelin award-winning restaurants, perfecting his skills in French, Italian and Spanish cooking. Discovering a love for sharing his passion and love of cooking, particularly Peruvian dishes, he became a culinary teacher at several UK cookery schools. Fabricio has also worked in advertising and publishing as a food stylist, participating in events such as London Fashion week.

He really enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience with others in a fun and professional environment in the centre of one of the World’s great cities – London!

Fabricio says “I love Peruvian food ceviche, papa la huancaina and the delicious loma saltado – beef, chili, onions, tomatoes, soy sauce and black beer stir fried and served with French fries and rice – which my Grandmother and Father make. Delicioso!”

We handle all types of ingredients in the kitchen at Divertimenti and we are not able to completely allergen free environment, our kitchen is multi-purpose therefore this makes our kitchen unsuitable for those with life- threatening allergies, in such cases as these we would suggest getting in touch with the team to arrange a private lesson in your own home with one of our chefs.
