Papas a la huacaína, lomo saltado and anticuchos are some of my favorite Peruvian dishes. My Tía (Aunt) Delfina, a native born Peruvian, prepares the most delectable Peruvian cuisine, and I always look forward to her visits from Peru. My Peruvian roots stem from my father and we have always embraced our Hispanic roots not to mention the cuisine.
