Mauka is devoted to rescuing lost ingredients and reviving endangered crops. Every single variety of grain, herb, or edible plant speaks to a wider, palpable history: an emotional journey through an ecosystem and culture.
At our Cusco restaurant, each of Chef Pía León’s signature dishes is devoted to an ethos of delicious, serendipitous and meaningful locality. Think Andean mashwa paired with local trout, traditional chuño with alpaca, or the freshest ceviche elevated with native onions and zesty tangerine. This is not just somewhere to taste, but to learn.

At Mauka, we work closely with local farmers to form a culinary language based upon conscious, meaningful connection.
The altitudes of this magical region include stunning Andean landscapes with fertile lagoons, unexpected forests and colorful valleys, all with unique ingredients at the brink of extinction. Our Cusco restaurant is developing integrative systems to preserve crops and seeds—forming a beautiful dance between the cultural, culinary and environmental communities of the Sacred Valley.
By nurturing long-term relationships between farmers, chefs, and diners, we grow a conscious culture. An unbroken link between past, present and future.
