Peru: Food and Culture

Professor Aaron D. Sachowitz

June 28 - July 7, 2024

$3,940 per person double occupancy, $4,240 single occupancy

Peru is a gastronomic mecca, home to some of the best and most innovative fine dining in the world, including the reigning World’s Best Restaurant in 2023, as well as delicious street and traditional foods. Well known foods like potatoes, quinoa, sweet potatoes, amaranth, and cacao all come from Peru, and you’ll discover others, like lucuma, maca, and camu camu. In Peruvian food, one can taste both the country’s deep indigenous roots and the consequences of Spanish colonization. Since the arrival of the Spaniards also brought deeply engrained middle eastern influences, successive waves of immigration to Peru has resulted in further culinary influences from Italian, French, Chinese and Japanese flavors, techniques, and cuisines. Peru truly is a culinary melting pot, where the traveler’s tastebuds open the door to a rich world of history and culture.

Join us for 10 days as we use food as a lens to explore ancient archeological sites and modern Peruvian culture.
