Peruvian cuisine is usually considered one of the most diverse in the world and is on par with French, Chinese and Indian cuisine.
Peru is famous throughout South America for its food. As a major fishing nation, fish is abundant, and prepared with imagination.
The primary ingredients found in nearly every Peruvian dish are rice, potatoes, chichen, pork, lamb, and fish. Most of these meals include one of the different kinds of "aji", or Peruvian hot pepper.
