Peruvian Cuisine

stuffed avocadosThe number of international influences over the decades has transformed Peruvian cuisine into one of the most exquisite culinary fusions in the world. The Spanish and Italian immigrants combined their European cooking with the Inca ingredients. The effects of West African input are similar to the New Orleans culinary phenomenon. The Chinese and Japanese, too, contributed much to Peruvian cuisine after crossing the Pacific, and immigrant groups to the Americas used Peruvian ingredients to create one of the most scrumptious cuisines in the world.

And now, Peruvian food is within your reach here in Denver! Taste of Peru Cooking School brings all these flavors to your table.
