I've noticed a few other posts about Peru, but most have focused on restaurants in Lima. I'd like to contribute to the discussion by talking about the country as a whole. Before actually visiting Peru, I really didn't realize just how rich the cuisine was, though it combines ingredients and recipes from the indigenous population, modern Peruvian culture, and numerous immigrant communities, especially the Japanese. While I was abroad, I began to understand as I went through traditional (and not-so-traditional) Peruvian dishes, eating at restaurants in Lima, Cuzco, Arequipa, and Puno.
I'd like to post up my notes/reviews from my journey, so that hopefully it can help anyone else who has a thirst for everything Peruvian. I hope you all enjoy!
