Que Rico! – Market Food Tour
We’ll start the morning in a local market where you’ll be the only tourists shopping alongside moms and sous chefs. We’ll sample several fresh fruits, snacks and other tasty wares we’ll find on the day. Peru is one of the world’s most bio-diverse countries and producer of an exotic array of jungle, highland and coastal foods. The local market will whet your appetite for the day.
From there, we’ll sample the Peruvian spirit; “Pisco”. Then we’ll walk in Lima’s historic center, checking out the Plaza Mayor, Cathedral, the Archbishop’s residence, the Presidential Palace and the bright-yellow Franciscan church, built in 1546, which was used as a cemetery in the colonial era.
Afterwards, we’ll take a break to enjoy Peru’s flagship dish: ceviche. These sublime fish and seafood cocktails, gently marinated in fresh lime juice, are a Lima staple. And tasting the others mind-bogglingly options like Tacu Tacu (upgraded version of rice and beans).
We’ll end the gastronomic adventure with Picarones (fried dough) we’ll take you to the lightest and crispest. Every culture has a version, and the Peruvian edition is crafted from wheat flour that is dotted with anise and blended with sweet potatoes and pumpkin, then is topped with a liberal dose of molasses syrup. In other words, sheer greasy glory when they’re fresh out of the fryer. The sort of thing that makes a doughnut look dour by comparison.
This tour also accommodates vegetarians upon prior notice.
