Central: The kitchen
Written by on Monday 17 August 2015
Thanks to its numerous climates, Peru has more ingredients and food cultures than anywhere else in the world.
The importance of this diversity is emphasised in Central’s dishes.
A distinction is made between the various different dishes, based on the region they originally come from: Costa (coast), Andes (mountains), or Selva (rain forest). Peru’s gastronomy has been influenced by many cultures, including Spanish, Arab, African, and Asian influences, leading to a fusion of different styles. Peru is named in the Guinness World Records Book as the country with the most variety of dishes.
