Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Around the World in One City, I travel around the world and taste authentic dishes without ever leaving New York.
I first fell in love with Peruvian food like most people do, through tasting moist, tender rotisserie chicken. But that is such a small part of the wide variety this incredible cuisine has to offer.
On the second episode of Around the World in One City, I get as close to visiting Peru as possible. My friend Pedro Alarcon, who I met years ago when we both worked at Apiary, is from the rainforest areas of Peru and is the perfect guide to introduce me to such dellicacies as anticuchos, tiradito, and leche de tigre. We start with some hearty breakfast dishes at Broadway Bakery before finishing with a well-balanced feast at Urubamba.
From coast to mountains to jungle, the food of Peru is widely diverse and satisfyingly delicious. I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit the country itself this past year and I can assure you, if you don’t feel like hiking up Machu Picchu, hiking to Queens is the next best thing. Save yourself some calories and check out the adventures below.
