Please help me "get" Peruvian food.

I have a sordid confession to make. I don't get Peruvian food. It seems less a distinctive cuisine than a hodgepodge of different dishes that bear no resemblance to each other. I've had the a la brasa chicken (love that), but then you've got a lot of gaucho type cooking - meat and rice - that to me isn't particularly worth seeking out. Then you've got ceviche in there somewhere. I also had a tamale that truly sucked. I think they used mashed potatoes instead of masa.

Are there any food ethnologists out there who can explain what's going on?
