Flavours of Peru & Chile
Discover fine wine, food & cultural delights
Peru is an astonishingly varied country, where landscapes range from the towering icy Andean peaks to the steamy depths of the tropical Amazon. Home to one of the most ancient and sophisticated cultures on the continent, it has given rise to some of the finest examples of art and craftsmanship we know.
With African, Arab, European and Asian influences, Peru’s cuisine is as much an ethnic melting pot as its population. Great cultural diversity has bought a fusion of ingredients and techniques and the food here, from the bountiful food markets to the novoandina (Peruvian nouvelle cuisine), is exquisite.
‘Flavours of Peru and Chile’ explores the many aspects of Peru’s rich Andean and colonial past, including the incomparable Machu Picchu and the Incan sites of the Sacred Valley & Cusco. You will also enjoy hosted meals and private cooking classes with leading Peruvian chefs, behind the scenes access to private Peruvian mansions and art collections and a hosted tour of Lima Art Museum by its curator. The fitting finale to this incredible adventure is an immersion into the expansive and daunting Atacama Desert in neighbouring Chile, a lunar landscape with glistening salt flats and flamingo-filled lakes.
