Pope Francis arrived on Thursday afternoon for a three-day tour in Peru. He is staying in the Nunciature in Lima and will be trying out Peruvian plates during his time in the country.
“The Pope will be eating Peruvian food. He will be served ceviche and lomo saltado [a dish prepared with beef steak]. These are approved plates by the Vatican”, said Nicola Girasoli, from the Nunciature.
Since the Pope has such a busy schedule he needs to use only 20 minutes every day for breakfast, and 40 for lunch and dinner. He will have different fruit juices available for his first meals of the day, pasta for lunches and soups for dinners.
The Nunciature also explained El Comercio that the Pope can’t eat seeds and he doesn’t drink alcohol.
