Lima is known as the gastronomic capital of Latin America. A visit to Peru would not be complete without diving in to taste and experience the exciting traditional dishes and modern fusion flavors on offer. With a diverse larder from the Pacific Ocean, coast, highlands of the Andes and fertile sub-tropical Amazon rainforest, the ingredients and flavor combinations are endless.
Of course, you can taste your way through our many restaurant recommendations, but if you really want an authentic foodie experience, why not head into the kitchen with an expert Peruvian chef?
