Discover Peru’s culinary scene from Lima to Cuzco
Peruvian food and topography go hand in hand. Using what pachamama (mother earth) gave them, the Peruvians have developed a cuisine that combines local and international flavours. And undoubtedly it is the geography of Peru that makes its culinary culture so distinct. With the coast providing an abundance of fresh seafood, the Andean highland supplying a variety of potatoes and the Amazon rainforest delivering delicious seasonal fruits, it's unsurprising that Peru is one of the world's emerging foodie hotspots.
It's delicious, diverse and hands-on. You’ll learn the secrets of ceviche, make your own pisco sour, learn a few Andean cooking tips with a foodie in Cuzco and eat empanadas straight from the wood-fired ‘horno’

Intrepid provided accurate, valuable planning information with regard to cost, physical activity levels, currency needed (including emergencies), and health and safety precautions. I had the opportunity to join a small group (planned for 15 but ended up with 7 adults , total, which worked out very well) - good flexibility offered for meals and free time.
