Peru Food Tours
Expert culinary tours to Peru
Lima, often referred to as the “Culinary Capital of South America”, has bloomed as the home to some of the world’s most innovative chefs and haute cuisine restaurants such as Astrid y Gaston (one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants), unique for their cutting-edge, cross-culture gastronomy.
For the gourmet traveller, Lima as well as many other parts of the country, certainly impress as a gastronomic destination thanks to its fusion of Asian and South America cultures and cuisines. Its chifas (Chinese- Peruvian restaurants), as well as national dishes such as ceviche and tiradito (both a Japanese-Peruvian spin on serving raw seafood) have found their way onto menus all over the world.
Of course there are the expected regional variations and delicacies that have sprung from ingredients made ready to such parts. For example in the southern Andean highlands of Arequipa, Cusco and the Sacred Valley, the cuisine becomes more hearty and heavy. With specialities of alpaca steak, ostrich, trout and guinea pig cooked in local herbs and sometimes in the ground, in the traditional Incan Pachamanca way, or in delicious tamales (wrapped in banana leaf and boiled). Then there is the delight of mixing Pisco Sours, the national drink.
