(Paul Monzón, desde Machu Picchu).- Saborear un exquisito Ceviche en las faldas de la mismísima "Ciudad perdida de los Incas", Machu Picchu, no tiene precio. Y hacerlo en el único hotel de lujo de la zona, el Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel, es una experiencia que no se puede olvidar jamás. Y si a ello le agregamos un brindis con "Pisco Sour", preparado con el auténtico pisco, que es el peruano, nos quedamos más que contentos.
Mientras la comida peruana tiene su auge internacional, tierra adentro existen expresiones notables de recuperación ancestral de experiencias culinarias, como las que surgen en la cocina del hotel Sumaq.
The Inca guide who traveled with me through the Andes still hikes carrying dried potatoes (sometimes in a powdered form) and llama jerky, essential ingredients for a soup he considers a part of his cultural inheritance. Potatoes were given superb treatment wherever I traveled. At the Sumaq Hotel in the town of Aguas Calientes, there was pastel de papa, a meltingly soft potato cake with layers of thin-sliced potato, bacon and cheese.
Many spring breaks fall over Easter this year; as Peru is predominantly a Catholic country, with numerous parades and cultural events, it's the perfect festive destination. Plus, Peru is always great for families who love active travel mixed with history and adventure - and the hiking in Machu Picchu is lovely and green this time of year. Some of my favorite properties include Sumaq Machu Picchu, Titilaka at Lake Titicaca, and, in the Sacred Valley, Sol y Luna and Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado.
