Diners can also sample unique offerings such as Pulpo al Olivo or smoked swordfish ham – a hearty favourite on Peru's traditional dining table and a must-try when visiting this enchanting country.

The feast also features delicious desserts of Peruvian cuisine, including sweet potato donuts, anise-scented pumpkin Picarones, and ‘Suspiro Limeña’ or 'Sigh of a Lima Lady' – the name was given for its softness and sweetness, similar to the sigh of a woman.

In addition, diners will have the chance to enjoy Peruvian specialty coffee from the coffee-growing regions of Amazonas, Cajamarca, Junín, Pasco, Puno and Ucayali.
