Sumaq Machu Picchu Luxury Hotel offers innovative and authentic Peruvian culinary experiences for guests. With new local Peruvian chef, Carlos Pardo Figueroa, the property has introduced exclusive “Pisco Classes” where guests create three different types of Pisco Sours, along with the opportunity to attend Ceviche School and create their own ceviche with locally sourced ingredients.
Sumaq’s Qunuq Restaurant holds its own against anything the finest restaurants in Lima can dish out. With its new refurbishments and design, it is a genuine foodie destination for travelers in Machu Picchu. Sumaq is very innovative in coming up with new and exclusive ways to bring travelers back to ancient culinary traditions, and the property is a must-experience for gourmet food-lovers visiting Machu Picchu. Sumaq sources food locally, and is the only hotel in Machu Picchu where guests can taste gourmet bread baked with all locally sourced, regional ingredients. Guests may also dine outside and overlook the mountains of Machu Picchu.
The hotel also offers a new Pachamanca class, a fun, interactive outdoor meal where travelers experience the ancient culinary traditions of the Incas. Local Peruvian ingredients are prepared in an oven built with stones, then covered in leaves and cooked within the earth.
