When deciding where to host an exceptional culinary adventure, the B&R Trip Designers quickly agreed that Peru hit all the marks. Having been recently awarded World’s Leading Culinary Destination by the World Travel Awards and home to Lima, the food capital of South America, Peru has emerged as a popular destination for fantastic cuisine. From cutting-edge restaurants to traditional tastes of Peru’s exceptional culinary legacy—like an amazing array of ceviche, aji pepper-spiced stews, Andean specialties and one-of-a-kind Amazonian finds that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet—there’s nowhere we’d rather be eating right now in South America.
