History Of Peruvian Food - And Why Is It Delicious
The secret behind the amazing tastes of the Peruvian food lies in the country's heritage. More specifically, the rainforest and mountain indians, the fisher culture in the coast and the spanish invasion combined all of that with the mediterranean influence. On the other hand, the coastal civilisation blended with the Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Potatoes and corn, on the other hand, has been already being grown in Peru since the beginning of all. The mix of tastes gave the traditional Peruvian food a new meaning, introducing over 2000 kinds of potatoes all deriving from different places in Peru- each of which different in its size, color and texture.
Peru has kept to its traditional cuisine but also inherited a lot from the Mediterranean and Asian influence. This has made the Peruvian food popular over the years, and Peru a popular destination for every lover of good food.
