Peru Cooking Vacations and Culinary Tours
Peruvian cuisine relies heavily on Spanish and, oddly enough, on West African cooking styles and techniques. In more recent years, cooking in Peru has also benefited from the traditions and ingredients of Asian cooking, as well as various cooking styles and recipes from Central Europe. Individuals experiencing a culinary tour in Peru will taste and prepare basic staples utilizing beans, corn, quinoa and a variety of vegetables, roots and tubers in traditional dishes.
Foodies or gourmet experts enjoying a cooking vacation in Peru are certain to taste a variety of colorful and tasty Peruvian chili peppers, from ceviche along the western coast line, a dish mixing fish and shellfish, to anticuchos, or marinated beef heart in spices and grilled to perfection. Cooking classes and wine tours offer foodies from around the globe a rich diversity of flavors, aromas and tastes. Learn to cook traditional empanadas, or meat turnovers or tripe stew or popular dishes of fried Guinea pig from the indigenous regions of the Peruvian Andes. Regardless of experience, individuals enjoying a foodie tour through Peru won't be disappointed by the number of unusual and traditional dishes offered in this ancient land.
