With Peruvian Independence Day, July 28th, right around the corner, we think it's time to really highlight some of Peru's signature recipes. More than quinoa and potatoes, Peru has a bounty of veggies and seafood and a delicious tradition of farm-to-table foods.
Chefs the world over have declared Peruvian cuisine the next up-and-comer in the ever-expanding culinary world. With its dizzying biodiversity and varied cultural influences including Spanish, Asian, and rich indigenous traditions, Peru is a culinary hotbed of hearty and flavorful recipes. From classic, stick-to-your-ribs dishes like Lomo Saltado and Quinoa Stew with Cheese and Chilis to cocktail recipes such as Pisco Sour and desserts like Gluten-Free Yucca Cakes, this independence day celebrates all that Peru has to offer.
