Culinary Adventures Peru 11 Days

Theme style: FOOD TYPICAL
Discover Peru’s culinary scene from Lima to Cuzco
Peruvian food and topography go hand in hand to create a truly outstanding national icon. Using what pachamama (mother earth) gave them, the cuisine of Peru incorporates iconic local ingredients with traditional techniques to stand-out in the South American food scene. It is the geography of Peru that makes its cuisine so distinct compared to the rest of South America. With its coast providing an abundance of fresh seafood, the Andean highland supplying a variety of potatoes and the Amazon rainforest delivering delicious seasonal fruits, Peru is an exciting region to go on a foodie adventure.
