Rainforest Cruises Offers Peru Amazon Cruising with Jungle Super-Chef

  |   Special Guest Departures

Rainforest Cruises is offering three exclusive gourmet cooking cruises on board the luxurious Aqua Amazon hosted by Peruvian super-chef, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino. 


FEBRUARY 23, 2016 - Rainforest Cruises is offering three new voyages featuring Peruvian super-chef, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino. The Peruvian Amazon cruises will offer a gourmet insight into Amazonian cuisine, while aboard the luxurious Aqua Amazon riverboat. Activities include market visits and master cooking classes, with the multi-award winning chef who runs two of Lima’s most famous restaurants, Malabar and Amaz. 



Considered one of Peru’s most pioneering gourmet chefs, Schiaffino specializes in local ingredients from the Amazon region . Guests will learn about the various techniques and flavors of the jungle, and can expect to cook with fresh fish, exotic fruits, vegetables and spices, among others. 



Aqua Amazon has room for just 24-guests in spacious cabins, making this exclusive culinary voyage very personal. Between excursions to observe some of the Amazon’s iconic species, such as the enigmatic Pink River Dolphin, guests will accompany Schiaffino on tours to jungle markets to pick locally grown ingredients. Interactive cooking lessons will allow guests a sneak-peek into the Schiaffino’s mind, as a sampling of his signature dishes are prepared.



Aqua Amazon is a leading luxury riverboat in the Peruvian Amazon. It has 12 large and stylish suites with panoramic river views. The itineraries include cruising deep into the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, one of the most biodiverse environments in the Rainforest, and include day and night-time excursions. The boat carries mountain bikes and kayaks for more active adventure-seekers.



Chef Schiaffino is joining just three cruises in 2016. A five-day culinary cruise departs on 29 March; a four-day cruise sails on 26 November and a five-day cruise starts on 29 November. 



Four-day cruises start from $3,330 per person and five-day cruises from $4,440 per person, and are all-inclusive. Flights are not included.
