Let me show you Lima my birth city, and Cuzco the Inca Empire capital and door to Machu Picchu.
Cuzco is today an amazing, thrilling multicultural Indian city. A fascinating blend of sophisticated restaurants, bars, art shops, high quality handcraft, superb museums, and international interesting people – mixed with tacky tourist shops & markets, coca leaf reading, police-woman with perfect make-up, and delicious daily food restaurants hidden in unknown patios…..
Lima is the only capital city in the American continent located in the Pacific Ocean coast line. A city with a quite peculiar mixture of prettiness, ugliness, lots of art, “kitsch” modern handcraft, superb modern jewelry & textiles design, Spanish colonial architecture, and good museums.
In Lima you will find an enormous offer both of sophisticated restaurants or simple local daily food places – all of them are a delightful surprise and excellent service oriented.
Peruvian food is considered one of the most varied of the world. Thanks to Pre-Inca, Inca, Spanish, Japanese and African immigration, French, Chinese-Cantonese, and Italian mainly to the 19th century heritage with 774 years of Muslim coexistence offers a Gastronomy of four continents in one country.
The famous “Le Cordon Bleu” professional culinary school since 1895, opened its doors in 2000 in Lima, being the only one in South America. (the other 2 are in Mexico city & Ottawa, Canada)
In the last years these chefs have created a fantastic movement combining our culinary heritage together with Peru´s immense natural biodiversity resources.
Pisco Sour cocktail is a must to taste – you will order it in any occasion you can!
