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.
