Peruvian Food Tasting & Wine Pairing

Rustic Llama Peruvian Cafe

August 25, 2010

A Selection of Typical Peruvian Dishes

v Ceviche de Pescado. A Peruvian classic. Minimalist use of ingredients to allow the fish to shine. Paired with Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc

v Causa de Pulpo. Exclusively found in Peruvian Cuisine, a cold, tangy, mildly spicy mash potato cake topped with olive mayo and octopus. Paired with Olivares Rose

v Pollo a la Brasa. Rotisserie chicken is found everywhere but it is hard to beat this spice driven, bronze skinned, moist Peruvian rendition. Paired with Ferrandiere Marselan

v Arroz con Pollo. The Peruvian version offers a cilantro flavored dish with mild spice. Paired with Primitivo Salvalai

v Anticucho. Of African origin and sold mostly by street vendors, an incomparable skewer of beautiful texture and mouthwatering flavor.  Paired with Caliterra Tributo Carmenere

v Alfajor. Traditional pastry stuffed with sweetened,  browned milk. Paired with El Escondido Late Harvest Semillon
