when it comes to food

When it comes to food, one of my favorites is Peruvian food.

Peru is famous throughout South America for its wonderful food. To me it is the best food in America. Four continents are reflected in their dishes, with major influences being African, Basque, Italian, Japanese, French and British.
As a major fishing nation, fish is abundant, and prepared with imagination in so many ways! If I had to describe Peruvian food in two words, it would be "pleasant surprise".

"pulpo al olivo"


  1. I don't know anything about Peruvian cuisine but after reading your post I think I'll be checking it out. Everything looks delicious!

  2. Looks yummy! Don't think I've had Peruvian food before... hmmm... a new something to try ;)
