Eating and Drinking My Way Through Peru

Peruivan food epitomizes comfort food. You got your meat and your starch, with the occasional vegetables (although I think potatoes and corn might be considered vegetable enough here). I was lucky enough to get a lot of home-cooked meals during my time in Peru- which was a relatively new experience for me travelling outside the US and one I highly recommend. But there’s certainly a range in Lima and Cusco, from high-end to street carts. And it’s all delicious and filling. And begging to be washed down with some pisco, wine, or lager.

It’s a cuisine that seems to be gaining popularity in the United States and with good reason- with the ocean, mountains, and desert all in one country, the culinary resources seem endless. Here’s just a sample of my eating and drinking in Peru adventures:
