If you haven’t heard about Peru’s gastronomic revolution, you must be living under a rock. The country, which was recently named the world’s leading culinary hotspot by the World Travel Awards, is now a white-hot culinary destination, with gastronomes the world over embarking on luxury tours to Peru. Lima – the historical capital of the Spanish Viceroyalty in South America and the current capital of Peru – is also the country’s “food capital.” Many of Peru’s most cutting-edge chefs practice their craft here, relying on the incredible assortment of local ingredients available and drawing on the multicultural influences (pre-Columbian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Chinese to name a few) to put up imaginative and seriously tasty plates.
