Do They Really Eat Guinea Pigs In Peru?
I’m not going to lie, when I thought of Peruvian cuisine my thoughts immediately landed on images of guinea pigs. You know, those furry little things that most 8-year olds settle on when they can’t get a dog. True, guinea pig is a part of the Peruvian diet but it is just one corner of a thriving culinary scene that is beginning to capture the attention of the epicurean world.
From the freshest, creative ceviche combinations to creamy chicken and beef; the things that Peru does with food is nothing short of heavenly. It’s no surprise that some of today’s top culinary talent are travelling to Peru for inspiration in their own cooking.
