Chef, Consultant and Peruvian Culinary Expert, recently consulted for one of Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants
There is nothing Lucia loves more than her family, scuba diving, Peru, traveling, and of course cooking. Lucia's culinary journey started at the age of 12 (where she helped at the family restaurant), and since she has worked as a restaurant consultant, menu developer, customer service advisor, caterer and managed events for corporate clients and celebrities. Most recently, she acted as a consultant for a restaurant that landed on the prestigious “50 Best Restaurants of Latin America” list.
Graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Lima, Lucia pursued her love of food, travel and cooking - she opened her own cooking class and experience company working in both Lima and Cusco city. In addition to her long list of accolades, she has spent so much of her life travelling. With more than 50 countries under her belt, she’s visited 5 continents and has traveled more than 70% of her home country of Peru. During her travels, she seeks out the local traditions and food to understand the country’s culture and history.
Now she gives specialty gastronomic tours and experiences, consults restaurants and runs a business that offers private chef services. She can’t wait to bring a little Peru into your kitchen in her cooking classes with The Chef & The Dish.
