6. Pollo a la Brasa
The cooking method is what makes this traditional roast chicken dish unique. We suppose the marinade of chili and black mint pastes are important, too, but how you roast the chicken is paramount. Traditionally, you would use a rotisserie over wood coals. Now, if you can’t manage that, you might want to add a little liquid smoke or something similar to get that truly authentic, smoky flavor.

7. Mazamorra Morada
Mazamorra Morada, a purple pudding, is a typical dessert in Lima. It is made from purple corn, cloves and cinnamon, as well as prunes, cherries, apricots and apples. It’s tasty and just lovely finish for your fall menu.
