Impressions on Peruvian Food

Blessings Mi Irieites,

We are at this moment in Lima, Peru’s capital and having a blast. While between press conferences and interviews, I’ve managed to tuck in to some of the dishes in this country of diverse culture. It is amazing just to witness the variety of fruits and vegetables that this place, the back bone of the Andes, has to offer.

i’m tasting a blended smoothie, which includes bananas, almond milk, walnuts and one of Peru’s most favoured fruits, the “lucuma.” For the millions out there that don’t know this fruit, it’s hard to describe it really.

Let’s put it this way, it’s about the size of an orange. The fleshy part has the colour of an egg yolk and it’s dry taste, is that of a cross between a roasted breadfruit and a baked sweet potato – just loaded with all the B vitamins. Incidentally, it is used here to make ice cream!
