• Peru becoming a top culinary destination

    2013-09-06

    Do you want to find a travel destination that combines history, natural beauty and culinary delights? Most globetrotters do, but narrowing down the search is easier said than done. However, one country is quickly separating itself from the rest - and in doing so, it's providing a boost to South American travel.

    Food and Travel magazine recently named Peru as its Destination of the Year for 2013. With influences ranging from Spanish to Asian, the country is packed with unique gastronomic options that delight many travelers. In fact, the cuisine is so alluring that many jet-setters are beginning to see Peru as a culinary destination instead of simply a nation filled with Incan ruins.

    Peru's location has an impact on its culinary options. With an expansive coastline along the Pacific Ocean, as well as several major rivers crossing through the country, the nation's culinary traditions feature a lot of seafood. Rich soil and extensive farmlands also make fresh produce and poultry common , so travelers who head to cities like Lima or Cuzco for the food are treated to plenty of dishes loaded with chicken and vegetables.
