Peruvian Cuisine and Recipes

Peruvian cuisine reflects local practices and ingredients—including influences from indigenous peoples and cuisines brought in with immigrants such as Spanish cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Italian cuisine, West African cuisine, and Japanese cuisine. Without the familiar ingredients from their home countries, immigrants modified their traditional cuisines by using ingredients available in Peru. The three traditional staples of Peruvian cuisine are corn, potatoes, and chilli peppers. Staples brought by the Spanish include rice, wheat and meats (beef, pork and chicken). Many traditional foods—such as quinoa, kaniwa, some varieties of chilli peppers, and several roots and tubers have increased in popularity in recent decades, reflecting a revival of interest in native Peruvian foods and culinary techniques.

Humitas

Humitas are an early, pre-Hispanic food that is still popular today. They are similar to Mexican tamales. Fresh corn is ground and mixed with salt and lard (and seasoning and cheese in this case), and the mixture is wrapped in corn husks and steamed. Serve them with salsa criolla.
