high jungle's culinary experience
In our culinary Lab we offer different experiences of experimental and ancestral cuisine.
At GoctaLab we are committed to the revaluation of local ingredients with a personal touch, giving a unique result.
Everything we cook comes from our farm or local suppliers. We also grow and harvest our own organic specialty coffee and we use different types of extraction methods for tasting it.
We bake our own bread and a selection of desserts daily. We use different methods to reduce our ecological impact, such as producing our own plant-based milk and buying in bulk from local markets.
We also offer tasting of ferments and pickles together with a unique local pairing using our local cane liquor and the homemade macerates.
Contact us to tell you about the different options we have this season.

culinary investigation residency
Here we work with the zero kilometer / slow food concept; giving priority and encouraging localized production and thus promoting food sovereignty.
We offer a space for creation and exchange where, if you are fan of cooking, alchemy, medicinal plants or agriculture, you can come to investigate the various resources of the Amazon region of northern Peru and prepare new dishes or products!
