Lucas y su esposa Samantha Lewis crearon la agencia de turismo Capital Culinaria hace once meses. Antes vivían en Madrid y cuando se mudaron a Lima empezaron a buscar un negocio al que dedicarse. Mientras tanto los amigos que tenían por el mundo les anunciaban sus visitas. Como buenos anfitriones pensaban que la mejor manera de recibirlos era llevarlos a comer. De allí nació la idea de crear una ruta gastronómica. "La idea es que los grupos no sean mayores de seis personas. Nos gusta que sea personalizado. Queremos que se sientan como si un amigo o un familiar los llevara a pasear", explica Lucas.
6 Ways to Get Your Customers Saying - Please Take My Money! 12/10/2012
We had planned to be in Lima for a couple of days and like typical tourists, were looking to do the touristy things – experience the food, the people, visit the historical landmarks ‘et al. Yet, at the same time, we wanted to do something that would give us a taste of Peru; something the locals would do. And that happened on our 2nd day when we met a local couple – Sam & Lucas. OK, it was no accident that we met them; they run a culinary tour company, called Capital Culinaria Lima Gourmet Tours and I found them from their almost perfect TripAdvisor reviews.
Visitors can also experience Lima's tastes and traditions on a culinary tour, such as the ones hosted by Capital Culinaria Lima Gourmet Tours, which offers a variety of options that include tastings and cooking instruction.

Rethink Lima for Fantastic Girlfriend Trip 6/29/2012
You will taste your way through local markets (sampling endless varieties of exotic produce such as an amazing, buttery little avocado that doesn’t have a pit) off-the-beaten track cafes, restaurants and there’s even time to shop the boutiques scattered throughout Lima’s most exciting nabes. You’ll learn all the secrets for making the world’s best Ceviche and Pisco Sours from a top chef, so you can really impress the folks back home. (The Chef thought my rendition was the best in class-really. Of course, Samantha and I were the only two in the class!)
his lunch has set the bar for all my seafood meals in the future. Their Chicharron de Calamares (fried calamari) served with a simple squirt of lemon, was sheer perfection. You’d never find it on your own so this alone should entice to check out CCLGT. Whether you sign up for a day or evening tour, I can’t imagine a more fun, insightful way to explore the real Lima.
