Amazing food of Peru

While traveling through Peru, it became evident that the diversity and quality of the food are exceptional. Peru is considered 5th in the world when it comes to gastronomy, and the Peruvian people take great pride in their culture and food. The passion for the food is contagious. I became addicted to Peruvian dishes like; Lomo Saltado, Juane, and Ceviche but Cuy (guinea pig), on the other hand, was a taste I could not acquire. With the food comes a desire of the Peruvian people to share and celebrate their culture through food and festivals. Peru is also known for a drink called the Pisco sour, an alcoholic cocktail that’s name comes from Pisco brandy, its base liquor, and the cocktail term sour citrus juice and sweetener components.
