Corn Lawa, A Delicious Cuzco Tradition

Corn, as we well know, has been the most important crop in the Andes since the time of the Incas. From it are derived many products, such as humintas, sweet corn pie (pastel de choclo), and many others that are very important in the diet of the Andes. The city of Cuzco offers a great variety of typical dishes with a lot of tradition. One amazing treat it offers is the traditional soup called lawa de maiz also called crema de maiz. In Quechua it is called sara lawa. A creamy, thin gruel of corn the soup has substance and yet is light. This soup is consumed with great frequency in the city of Cuzco, especially given the importance of corn production here.0 1672
