After a grand introduction into Peruvian cuisine and an emphasis on the South American country’s variety of potatoes, Verma Lai reveals that the meal of the night while visiting chef Bruno would be ceviche.

“Peru’s iconic dish is made by marinating fresh, firm fish in citrus juice, and zesting that up with a kiss of aji or spicy sauce. It is not heat-cooked and is probably the quickest dish to rustle,” says Verma Lai according to the “India Times”:http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/magazines/panache/how-peruvian-food-and-papa-are-synonymous-to-each-other/articleshow/49784991.cms.

Verma Lai concluded, “As I dug my spoon into that first slurp of ceviche, I knew far away from the Andes, I was partaking in a Peruvian national heritage.”

What do you think _Living in Peru_ readers? Would ceviche taste just as good in India?
