FARM & FOOD EXPERIENCE IN LAMAY

FARM & FOOD EXPERIENCE IN LAMAY

This is a special day to learn about Cusco and the Sacred Valley gastronomy, discovering the amazing variety of local agricultural resources and biodiversity, to later put into practice the cooking lessons at La Base Lamay. We will leave Lamay towards the community of Huayllafara. The locals will take Us to visit their farms with traditional crops (like potatoes, oca, anu, tarwi, quinuas, beans among others) and will teach us about their traditional farming techniques, while we taste their local produce. Then we will visit a garden with veggies, lately incorporated to the local gastronomic offer. We will learn about the local culture and their daily activities, according to the time of year and the agricultural calendar. The tour and interpretation will be focused in the agricultural and food processing techniques, such as the preparation of chuño and moraya, the washing and uses of quinua, elaboration of Chicha de Jora and other interesting Andean activities. Finally we will return to La Base Lamay for the cooking lessons. The idea is to prepare Peruvian classic recipies and use the native products in the cooking process. To encourage the spirit, we will prepare pisco sour or enjoy a Pisco tasting session. End of the activity and return to your hotel or to your next destination.
