Learning the Secrets of Ceviche and the Pisco Sour

Another of my favorite Peruvian dishes (actually was recently added to the list) is Ceviche.  This is a fairly common dish around south America, but everyone says, that Peru's is the best.  So when I got an invite from my new friend Ericka, of Delectable Peru Tours, to make Ceviche I was all in.  This also included a quick Pisco Sour class too, which made it even better.  
Our class was right around the corner from our apartment at El Verídico de Fidel, and oddly, I had never walked by it.  I always walk the other way down the street it is on, so sadly I had never had the pleasure of trying it.  It was another hidden gem!  Not only did I have a fantastic time having lunch and a drink with some new people, but the ceviche was the best I have had.  
I have included some photos of the class as well, as some links to recipes for Ceviche and Pisco sours, and if I get the exact recipe we used, I will add it.  I am sure that making it at home would never be the same, as the ingredients are just never quite right, but I will be sure to give it a try!
