For Foodies who like to endulge themselves Peru is perfect!
On this wine tour in Peru, not only will you try some great wine, you will also be able to indulge your taste buds and your stomachs into the bargain. Carnivores will have more choice than vegetarians that is true, – that’s true all over Latin America in fact – but Peru has so much invention and such a range of ingredients that it knocks the socks off the rest of the region.
Peruvian food is gaining an international reputation for its flavour, style and creativity, with good reason. You could eat a standard dish every day for a month without repeating yourself, there are so many dishes, from all the different regions, in different styles and made from many ingredients.
Chefs such as Gaston Acurio have succeeded in taking Peruvian gastronomy to the next level, inventing more “gourmet” level dishes from local ingredients, creating a new style called Novo Andino and generally becoming the ambassador of Peruvian cuisine. He has many different restaurants across several genres … not only in Peru, but worldwide. Plus there is a whole new wave of Peruvian chefs pushing the envelope of traditional Peruvian food and making it more and more famous.
This tour will give you the chance to try many of the dishes on offer. Your guides and tour leaders are gourmets, so they will make sure you enjoy what you eat, give you advice on what is good, according to your tastes, and recommend wines and liquors to accompany the gastronomy to perfection.
