Peru ranks among the world's most attractive tourist destinations and has some of the richest biodiversity on Earth. Equally compelling is the diversity of the cuisine; the explosive combination of flavors in Peruvian cooking creates a cuisine unlike any other.

Join us in an exploration of the culinary pleasures of coastal Peru and the Andes. Visit exciting food markets, including the colorful native markets in the Andes, which also sell native weavings, art and many other products. Also enjoy some of the major natural wonders of Peru, especially the astounding Machu Picchu, the "Lost city of the Incas," and the spectacular Ballestas Islands, the protected home for over 150 species of marine birds, and much more...

Here's the info from our friend, Joan Peterson:


Dear friends, foodies and travel lovers,

I'm pleased to announce that I'll be leading a tour to Peru in 2010--in addition to the tour to Turkey that has already been announced. Brook Soltvedt, co-author of "Eat Smart in Peru," will be leading the tour with me.

The exciting itinerary is now available for viewing and downloading from our tour webpage:

The tour is in September, a lovely time of the year to enjoy the majesty of Peru, and a perfect time for you to get away and indulge yourself in an awesome experience!!
