Transport to the jungles of Peru in this San Juan Party cooking class

This class is a celebration of the jungles of Peru - and there is nothing more synonymous than Chicken Juane, the centerpiece of this jungle party. While Chicken Juane is a popular meal found in restaurants, markets and street vendors throughout Peru, it's most often served in June. Every June 24, the Fiesta de San Juan takes place, which is the birthday of the Patron Saint of the Amazon.  This fiesta is a sight to be seen, with the Peruvian jungle coming to life with live music, dance, rituals, and of course - amazing Peruvian food. It's during this time families prepare Chicken Juane, package it up, then exchange it with family and friends.


While made up of simple ingredients - chicken, hard-boiled eggs, olives, and rice - this certainly isn’t your traditional chicken dish. Spices like turmeric and cumin will bring this mouth-watering meal to life, while the unique preparation method and final presentation will bring the party to the table! Each final dish looks like a perfectly wrapped gift just waiting to be opened and devoured. Learn about the interesting traditions of the Amazon and bring a San Juan Party into your home. Get ready to transport your kitchen to the jungles of Peru.
