Private Journey

 

Peruvian cuisine isn’t all about potatoes. You might also have heard that guinea pig is a local delicacy.  But there is so much more; and delicious recipes are starting to receive world-wide recognition.  Some of the world's best restaurants are in Lima. On this holiday you will visit Peru's highlights including Cusco and Machu Picchu, with visits to markets, vineyards and a couple of cookery lessons built in.

Fusion cookery is à la mode and Peruvian dishes exemplify this so well: a country of immigrants,Peru has evolved a menu of scrumptious meals in which Chinese, Japanese, African, Italian, German, Spanish flavours and textures blend with age-old delicacies conceived by the indigenous populations of the Andes, the desert coast and the Amazon: the choice of ingredients is as wide as the variety of landscapes from which they come.
