Fierce Peppers

Hot peppers have deep roots in Perú. As early Peruvians were beginning to build pyramids in what is one of the worlds driest deserts, about the same time Egyptians were doing the same, Peruvians were already eating hot peppers. The domesticated them some 6,000 yrs ago. While most of the world relies on just one species of pepper, capsicum annum, for its hotness, Peru’s neighborhood markets and super stores contain four or five species. And, their most consumed peppers come from two species seldom seen in Europe or the United States.0 2191

Traditional Food of Cuzco

Even though many places offer menus in English words often seem strange and have meanings they don’t to native speakers. One of these is the word “typical”.  It appears in restaurant names and in the descriptions of their offerings.  It is so common.   And yet it does not have exactly the meaning it does for most English speakers.3 27707

Peruvian Cuisine

From cuy to ceviche, Peruvian food embraces a world of diversity.  Its roots lie in the indigenous domestication ofplants and animals in the Andes, as well as in importations from Africa, China and Europe. Its richness and complexity make it one of the great world cuisines, akin to that of China and France in subtlety and variety, at least if Raymond <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=EH9LqhXuJ3QC&pg=PA81&lpg=PA81&dq=raymond+sokolov+peruvian&source=bl&ots=1bs4XMX9ww&sig=-jwU7T-4GKqvXiKZ8cIgdBminw0&hl=en&ei=UpmeTKW5BoT2tgOZl5nWAQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CBYQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false">Sokolow</a> is to be believed.1 2213

Amazing Restaurants

You can sit in Yakumama’s balcony, enjoying a well chosen glass of wine to accompany their beef loin and mushrooms while watching life unfold on the plaza where almost everyone goes at some time. Or you can look at the top of the Cathedral to seek the Buddha supposedly hidden in its facade. At night you can sit with a beer on the balcony of Norton Rats as the sparkling lights of Cuzco’s hillside neighborhoods merge with the sky. It is as if you were in a bubble traveling among unknown galaxies, yet enjoy the comfort of a good brew and finger food.0 1632
