"Peru is the gastronomic capital of Latin America. World-renowned Chef Virgillio Martinez who has been featured on Netflix's Chef's Table can be seen all throughout Peru. His own resturaunt, Central, has been voted as Best Restaurant in the world for 2023 on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. He is sought after to help build menus in hotels all over the country and has recently done the menu at Explora in the Scared Valley. Hacienda Sarapampa is another great foodie experience where you go to a family-owned farm to see how famous Peruvian giant corn is grown and can also have a tasting menu in the backyard of the family who owns the farm. They come out with each dish explaining all of the fresh ingredients. It is all beautifully plated and you are looking out on the Andean mountains."
