Peru Culinary TourDon’t be surprised if Peruvian cuisine becomes the favorite part of your next culinary Peru tour. Peruvians have been cooking up excellent ceviche, aji de gallina, and other dishes for quite a while now. However, the rest of the world is just now catching on. Mistura, a fabulous food festival that goes on in Peru’s capital every September, features an assortment of food vendors from across Lima. Sample delicious rice dishes from Huaca Pucllana Restaurant, or try anticuchos, a delicacy that many Peruvians rave about.

Go from booth to booth, trying new desserts, dishes, and drinks. Learn about the wide regional variety of Peruvian dishes – from the Afro-Peruvian entrees to Amazonian dishes – it’s all at Mistura. This year’s main attraction will be Peruvian food, including maracuya and other larger-than-life delectables.

Last year’s Mistura food festival included a potato museum, featuring the many varieties of the tuber that Peru has grown and harvested since the time of the Incas. World-famous chefs, including Peru’s own Gaston Acurio (of the famous Astrid & Gaston restaurant in Lima), will be on hand at Mistura to show off the culinary delights of Peru. You can also check out their Mistura Facebook page. View our Wine & Culinary Peru Tour here.
