My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Hello, I’m having fun viewing Lisa & Holler’s roundup and I think you are the first to prepare a cold mushroom salad. Love the combination of lime and ginger with the other spices. I would have never thought to serve the mushrooms with sweet potatoes! Interesting combination I will have to try, I know my husband would love it!
