Why Peruvian Cuisine has Become So Popular
Peruvian cuisine is amongst the best and most-varied in the world. This is because it’s a true reflection of its 3 primary geographical zones- the Andean highlands, the jungle and the coast! In addition to this, it is also a mix of influences from various immigrant cultures from various times. Though Peruvian cuisine has attracted a lot of global attention only in recent years, the food & its preparation is a very important part of the culture of the country.
It’s also a very personal way of expressing the Peruvian identity. Since most visitors to the city will not be able to enjoy every single culinary treasure that the country has to offer, the one way of ensuring that you don’t miss out on the gastronomic pleasures, is to stay at a luxury Hotel in Lima like Royal Park Hotel and enjoy the culinary treats there. Lima is undoubtedly Latin America’s gastronomic capital and the ideal place to discover the different facets and variety of Peruvian cuisine.
A Perception Change

But a lot of that perception has changed and today, people from across the world look forward to treating themselves to the gastronomic delights of Peruvian cuisine.
