Recognized the world over for its appeal both on the plate and the palate, Peruvian food is as colorful as it is exotic. Dig into platefuls of these South American favorites when you stop by this 2nd annual gastronomic festival on either Oct. 12 or Oct. 13 of the two-day PeruFest USA.
When you join this event celebrating Hispanic Heritage month, you’ll not only find Peruvian and Latin cuisines, but international dancers, a Caballo de Paso — or horse step — horse show, live entertainment, a quinoa cooking demo, kids activities, and more.
There’s also a slew of cooking contests with prizes for the Best Quinoa-based Plate, Best Ceviche, Best Causa, and Best Lomo Saltado — or marinated tenderloin dish.
