Joy and Delight in Cuzco’s Gastronomic Festivals

Chicharrones, Cuzco's Favorite Dish (Walter Coraza Morveli)

The best of Cuzco is demonstrated in its gastronomy that appears in its streets and plazas. That is where the Cusqueños of good taste carry out their gastronomic festivals. They spring up frequently, almost every weekend, so that you can enjoy the food that is particular to our city and region and well as innovations.

Gastronomic fairs are held in various parts of the city, in plazas, neighborhoods, and streets. It is a complete fiesta of colors, aromas, scents, and flavors, where everyone comes together to live joy and celebration as well as savor the best food of our region.

The flavors of our delicious food draw diners with their traditional scents while the vendors are putting up their stands filled with color.

If you have never eaten a lichen (roast pork) in a festival or a cargo (the responsibility for providing for a feast), an adobo stew in the morning, or a chicken soup for breakfast, a typical tamale along your way, you do not know what Cuzco is.

Let me show you how we live and experience our food through images of joy and enjoyment in the gastronomic festivals of Cuzco.
