Peruvian ingredients?

Jimbo | Jul 5, 2003 10:31 AM

A long shot, but I'm looking for authentic ingredients for a "reunion" for a recent month-long trip to Peru. To the point, I'm looking for a Bay area source for Alpaca and Cuy[guinea pig], as well as the kinds of potato and corn varieties I've not seen on this side of the equator. For anyone who's never been to Peru, alpaca tastes/ looks like extremely lean beef with just a hint of liver, and cuy tastes, yes, "like chicken"- actually more like rabbit- but there isn't much meat under the skin. Any leads?...
