FUNDAMENTALS

Considering the nation’s finest restaurant, I had to really think about my favorite place to eat in the world. First, I thought about Miami, being the melting pot for all cultural diversity, but Miami, though I love my hot and humid city, didn’t take me to the point of totally pleasure in ethnic cuisine. So, I made my decision on Lima, Peru. Why Lima, Peru you ask? Well, there is plenty of reasons, like the true diversity that lines the “ciudad de Gris”. The phenomenal food from Afro-Peruvian, Chinese, and the native Indigenous people and this is why Lima, Peru is my favorite place in the world to be to eat. The diversity in Lima, Peru creates a beautiful, natural ambiance taped with style and a great deal of awesome grace. First, the Africans brought a flavor to the Peruvian shores, called criollo (Creole), and Anticuchos, which is a tasty cow’s heart….Yum!!! Another famous, Afro-Peruvian dish is called Cau- Cau, which is Beef tripe, seasoned with yellow chili, turmeric, onion and cloves. It is mixed with chopped potato and served with white rice. The Chinese immigrants brought Ginger and soy, easily to the beautiful country Peru. The term chifa is used to refer to a style of food produced by the fusion of Creole Limean with Chinese Food. The Incas gave the third-largest country in South America, its staple food, like, lechon (pork), Choclo con queso (corn with cheese), and of course the world famous ceviche. The country of Peru spans through several thousand years with influences of Spanish empire, Inca Empire, and also the European empire. Peru independence was declared in 1821.
