With summer approaching, Hills Balfour has put together a list of holidays worldwide where travellers can get the most out of their trip by learning a new skill.

Included in the list is learning to make Peruvian ceviche and pisco cocktails in Lima.

Peruvian cuisine has burst onto the UK dining scene in recent years with Peruvian restaurant openings in London, such as LIMA, Andina and Coya.  

British Airways offers direct flights to Lima, Peru’s capital city, and Hotel B, a boutique luxury property in Lima’s bohemian Barranco neighbourhood, recently launched new  gastronomy experiences including a full day exploring the city’s foodie hot spots followed by cookery and cocktail classes with the hotel’s resident chef.

The full day experience takes in a visit to a renowned local coffee shop for tastings and talks and an upscale local market to sample Peruvian fruits. Guests will then return to the hotel to learn how to master ceviche, fresh fish marinated in citrus and chilli with local ingredients including sweet potatoes, avocado and corn, along with other traditional Peruvian dishes. The day is topped off with a pisco sour class to learn how to shake up the nation’s favourite cocktail.
