What People are Saying

Authentic Food Quest Peru 5 star reviewVoted Readers' Favorite

“ Traditional foods always have a deep cultural significance and this book gives a glimpse into the rich local life that created them. The book not only gives an introduction to Peruvian food, but also explores the history of how this unique gastronomy came to be. The book is divided into three main parts: what to expect on your culinary trip to Peru, learning about authentic food in Lima and Cusco, and the top Peruvian foods and drinks that should not be missed. It is an excellent read for all travelers going to Peru as it gives an exclusive focus on the regional specialties of the place. I like the way the authors have handled the topic; methodically and extensively, making it a good book to have along with travel guides while traveling to Peru. The stories, tips, and fun facts about the regional dishes of Peru are interesting and will teach travelers to experience Peruvian cuisine like a local. The book is not only about new flavors, tastes, or textures, but is a window to the culture and people of Peru. ”

– Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite

“ One of the wonderful joys of travel abroad is the experience of the cuisine unique to the local community. In this engaging book, the authors make use of both first-hand experience and historical research to capture the flavors of Peru. They have organized their personal experience into highly accessible, readily useable content for the traveler, with an emphasis on the cities of Lima and Cusco. By providing a cultural context for cuisine throughout the country, they introduce you to more than the taste of food. They help you understand the meaning of that cuisine to the local community and the language that accompanies that cuisine. In addition, there are specific recommendations of markets to experience, restaurants to enjoy and food to relish.  Even if you are an experienced traveler, a trip to Peru would be greatly enhanced by making use of the information provided in this book.
