Bite into a Peruvian pork sandwich

With a landscape varying from coast to mountains and rainforests, Peru's cultures, cuisines and ingredients differ greatly across the country. Unexpected and diverse, Peruvian food is underpinned by Incan origins, with strong use of corn, chillies and potatoes – 4000 varieties of which are grown in Peru. Over time, immigration to the country has seen traditional dishes enriched and adapted to fuse influences from Spanish, Chinese, African, French, Japanese and Italian cuisines to create modern Peruvian food. The newest addition to Phaidon's national cuisine series, Peru: The Cookbook by Gastón Acurio showcases dishes such as ceviche, stuffed potatoes and this recipe for sánguche de lechón (pork sandwich) to create a definitive guide to Peruvian home cooking. more
