A TASTE OF PERU

  • Written by Bradley Yandell




Discover the world’s hottest gourmand’s destination with its imaginative cuisine: Peru

Want to know why Peru is hot on the culinary world’s radar? In Lima, young, creative chefs are exploring new ways of preparing and presenting the country’s bounty of varied foods and culinary influences. From fresh ceviche of the coast to llama meat and potatoes of the Andes and a myraid of exoctic fruits and vegetables from the Amazon, Peru is truly a feast for all senses.

  • Peru shows you how to do fusion food like no other country. Sample Peruvian-Chinese cuisine in the largest Chinatown in South America, or Peruvian Creole dishes.

  • Discover your sweet tooth for vegetables. Yes, try picarones, a traditional Peruvian dessert made from squash and potato.

  • Relish the regions in an award-winning meal with celebrity chef Gaston Acurio! The world-renowned restaurant Astrid & Gaston La Barra will take you on culinary journey of Peru. Most diners need to book months in advance but not Enchanting guests!

  • Taste your way through the many local markets. Allow a local chef to take you on a tour of the traditional Andean market in Cusco before heading to their home for a private culinary lesson and tasting of what you have made. Learn how to whisk up a Pisco Sour!

  • Live the Peruvian life from farm to fork in the Sacred Valley. On a working farm you can witness and taste for yourself the traditional way of preparing food in the Andes, using the Pachamanca an underground wood fired oven.

  • Gobble up an open air gourmet style picnic at the former agricultural Incan civilization of Chincheros. A cook, waiter and a selection of Peruvian fine food and drink are awaiting to privately serve you.

A choice of chips! Peru is where the humble potato originates from and even today you can choose from over 3,000 varieties.
