"My partner and I had an amazing valentines day lesson. Alfonso was very accommodating and an expert teacher. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in Peruvian food!"AlexAbout local Choji Lima, February 2021
Great Lesson and Great Instructor
"I purchased the cooking lesson as an anniversary gift for my wife & I and we couldn't be happier with the whole experience! Choji began the lesson by giving us some insight into the culinary history of Peru and the dishes we were cooking. Choji was a great host and a great chef, and was able to provide us with direction if we had to make substitutions for a couple of the recipes. He walked us through each of the dishes, explaining some tips and tricks to making them. We were exposed to some dishes we hadn't heard of previously, and will definitely be using the recipes from the lesson again. The food was INCREDIBLE -- once the lesson was over and our dinner was prepared we sat down to enjoy our authentic Peruvian dinner. Everything tasted great and was cooked perfectly thanks to Choji's instruction. Choji did a great job at guiding us the whole way through, and I couldn't recommend the whole experience more! 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience, a unique gift idea, or anyone looking to gain some insight into Peruvian cuisine."MichaelAbout local Choji Lima, January 2021
"I booked this tour as part of my birthday week celebration. For one thing, I love how the virtual aspect of the tour made it possible to do something fun with my family on the other side of the US. To make everything even better, Choji made this cooking class so special and fun. He picked a perfect menu which had us happily groaning and contentedly full from the comida rica. His patient teaching style helped each of us make a fantastic meal regardless of our respective skill levels. Throughout the lesson we also enjoyed learning about the history of each dish and their ties to Lima and Peru in general. The whole tour was very comprehensive with no shortage of fun and appreciation for food. I highly recommend Choji’s tour to everyone especially while we’re waiting for travel to reopen!!"DaniellaAbout local Choji Lima, December 2020
Heart-warming time with an amazing chef
"Our little group had an amazing time with Choji. He is highly knowledgeable, extremely patient, well organised and he adapted from the very beginning to the various levels of kooking experiences we are having. Both of the recipes were stunning, even though he didn't have an easy task since part of our group are vegetarian and we have a couple of allergies also. The ingredients were easy to find even in Denmark. We loved the stories about local habits, Peruvian history and also about his origin. Choji is really personable, friendly, and helpful, so I highly recommend having him as a guide in Peruvian cuisine. :) "AnikóAbout local Choji Lima, December 2020
"We booked this experience as a gift for our friends that moved recently to a different country. This experience has been more than perfect, specially during COVID times: have an online catch up together, learn about Peruvian culinary history and put in place all our cooking abilities! We had a great feeling that we were traveling to Lima and cooking together at Choji's kitchen. We truly enjoyed the whole session, from the background of the dishes we were preparing, to the great tips that Choji shared regarding ingredients. The recipes were simply AMAZING, we enjoyed preparing them a lot, will certainly prepare these dishes many times in the future. We would totally recommend this experience with Choji, it was a pleasure and super fun!!"CristinaAbout local Choji Lima, December 2020

Bring Peru to You!
"I booked this experience last minute because our anniversary plans fell through. Since my boyfriend’s trip to Peru got canceled due to the pandemic, I decided to bring him a bit of Peru virtually, and we were not disappointed. This was our first virtual WithLocals experience and it was amazing! Choji is so friendly, warm, and enthusiastic. He provided information about the dishes we cooked, and patiently guided us on how to prepare each dish. It was fun to chat about his amazing country and get insight into the local cities and activities to check out for when we do visit. We highly recommend booking an experience with Choji! We were blown away by the food too, so delicious! "FrancescaAbout local Choji Lima, November 2020
Incredible experience with Choji!
"My friends and I had an amazing evening with Choji! He was incredibly knowledgeable, easygoing, and broke down the recipes easily for all levels of cooks. I loved all the contextual tidbits he talked about throughout the class about Peru, his own background, how the flavors reflect Peruvian tastes and why, and more. The meal itself was delicious. Can't wait to make that ceviche and spicy potato cake again! I would HIGHLY recommend Choji's class to anyone interested in learning more about Peru and Peruvian food!"UnnatiAbout local Choji Lima, August 2020
Fantastic peruvian experience!
"We had a wonderful evening with Choji, who led us expertly through making 4 dishes, to make a fantastic Peruvian feast! Firstly Choji showed us how to make Pisco Sours- the easy way!- and while we sipped those he explained the history of and influences on Peruvian food. Then it was in to action- with lots of useful chef tips on prepping and presentation. The resulting ceviche, lomo Saltado and causa was amazing and something we will definitely cook again- accompanied by pisco sours! It was my birthday, and it was a great way to celebrate with two sets of old friends who are currently locked down 200 miles away. I would strongly recommend Choji, 10/10 Very many thanks for a marvellous evening!🍹🍋🍠🌶🍅🧅🧄🌽🥩🥔"JillAbout local Choji Lima, July 2020
