Ingredients to get from Peru

Recommended Posts

The mother of a friend of mine is in Peru for the next three weeks. What are the best/most awesome ingredients/foodie things we should ask her to get for us?

Docsconz did a long blog in 2007 about his family's trip to Peru, with plenty of emphasis on food, of course. Perhaps this will give you some ideas. Here:

If you're a salt afficianado, you can ask for some Peruvian salt from the Maras salt mines. I recommend the fleur de sel, which I brought home from my trip. It came in rough crystals back then--you'll need a salt grinder to use it. I only bought the fleur de sel, I didn't think the regular salt was anything special. About Maras:

Thanks for the link, I will look through the thread. And yes, definitely salt.
