The food and drink of Peru 9

Sharing is caring!

I don’t often write about food on this site, though I now have the great folks from A Cook Not Mad doing up some regular food-oriented posts here, like this one for instance.

But I am a big food lover… I just can’t write about it very well, in my eyes. But hopefully one thing I can do well is bring you some of the power and feeling of food and drink via video, even if you miss out on the flavor.

Peru is most well known in culinary circles for one of my favorite foods in the world, ceviche. Oddly enough, I don’t think there is any ceviche in this video that I took during my time down there.

Guess I will just have to go back. Again and again…

This trip was sponsored by Cox & Kings and Prom Peru, but the opinions (and photos and videos) are my own.

About Michael Hodson

I’m an attorney that took off on my birthday in December of 2008 to circumnavigate the globe without ever getting on an airplane. After 16 months, 6 continents and 44 countries, I made it all the way back home. Right now, I am back on the road writing about it all.

    Food is my number one ultimate LOVE! One of the best parts of travel. This video was excellent. Interesting shot of the guinea pigs. I wonder what they’re gonna do with them, huh…

    We still haven’t tried ceviche here in Peru, despite having been here for over two months. That should get us deported, probably.

    Peru is one of our favorite foodie destinations. What wonderful memories you brought back with your delicious video! Though we may not have had as many “fine dining” moments (a bit jealous of that train journey!), many of our recollections of Peru involve food. I could pretty much live on Peruvian ceviche, supplemented by some of those savory soups and, of course anything made with corn!

    One of the most impressive for me is Adobo: Pork marinated with concho de chicha (corn beer sediment) and spices, cooked in a pot and Carapulcra: Boiled dehydrated potatoes made into a stew with pork and chicken, aji panca and mirasol (hot peppers), garlic, and other spices.
