Peruvian cuisine has access to seemingly endless varieties of native tropical fruits, shellfish, pulses, tubers, root vegetables, herbs and spices. Beyond the colorful array of Peruvian cooking ingredients, Peruvian gastronomy is shaped by a variety of ancient and historical influences dating back to the Inca’s, through the colonial times, until today’s modern era.
