Peruvian cuisine draws connoisseurs at Hyatt

Peruvian cuisine, famous for its diversity and creativity, has come to the fore of international attention in recent years, abetted by experimental efforts and proactive promotion. 

Eight Peruvian restaurants were listed last year in a list of Latin America’s 50 best restaurants sponsored by mineral water brand Acqua Panna S. Pellegrino, and two were included in its list of the top 50 in the world. 

Peru’s disparate ecosystem, biodiversity and climate from the Pacific Ocean, Lake Titicaca, Andes Mountains, Amazon Forest and coastal deserts produce a full plate of ingredients capable of concocting a tableful of flavors. 

Centuries of European, Asian and African immigration have added new livestock, grains and techniques to the nation’s food culture.
