Latin America is a mouth-watering continent, a geographical smorgasbord its vibrant mixture of cultural flavours makes it the perfect place to go on your next culinary escapade.
Whichever corner you turn you are only moments from a truly unique culinary experience that you won’t find anywhere else. Peru is enjoying a real moment in the gastronomic limelight, with places like Lima offering up exciting culinary experiences. Argentina with its rolling pampas, asado and Malbec is a must visit for beef and wine connoisseurs the world over. Chile is the home of delicious Carmenere and along with Peru lays claims to the refreshing Pisco Sour.
If seafood is your forte, Chile should be on your radar. Its coastline is one of the richest in the world. The Humboldt current flows up the coast from Antarctica and brings with it nutrients and a bountiful catch, much of which ends up on local plates.
Uruguay, whilst often overlooked in favour of its larger neighbours, is famed for its cattle, which produce delicious beef and cheese, whilst its boutique vineyards producing astoundingly good wine.
The continent also has many of the world's best chefs including Francis Mallmann, Manoella Buffara, Virgilio Martínez, Alex Atala and many more.
Latin America is also, of course, the home of chocolate, with the cocoa bean growing in the dark rainforests of the Amazon. In Peru, you can see the beans transformed into a gourmet bar by a master chocolatier and even try your hand at making one for yourself.
If you adore coffee, why not visit the Colombian coffee region and take a tour of a plantation to see how some of the best beans in the world, make it to your cup.
