*Ceviche (also spelled cebiche) is a seafood dish popular in the coastal regions of the Americas, especially Central and South America. The dish is typically made from fresh raw fish marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime and spiced with chilli peppers. Additional seasonings such as onion, salt, and pepper may also be added. Ceviche is usually accompanied by side dishes that complement its flavors such as sweet potato, lettuce, corn, or avocado. As the dish is not cooked with heat, it must be prepared fresh.
*Huancaína (wan-kay-eena) sauce is typically served over cold sliced potatoes in the famous Peruvian dish Papas a la Huancaína. Made with aji amarillo peppers, it is a versatile sauce that goes with many flavors. Serve it as a dipping sauce for bite-size boiled potatoes or raw vegetables. You can adjust the spiciness by using fewer or more yellow chili peppers.
*Chaufa consists of a mix of fried rice with vegetables, usually including Chinese onions, with eggs and meat, cooked at a high flame, quickly, often in a wok with soy sauce and oil. It is highly influenced by Chinese cuisine due to the influx of Chinese immigrants to Peru. The word "chaufa" comes from the Chinese word "chaofan" meaning "fried rice."
*Carapulcra is an ancient Peruvian stew. It contains dried potatoes, chilies, peanuts, cumin and pork . Originally, carapulcra was made in clay pots.
