Recently I was lucky enough to visit Machu Picchu and Cuzco, a small slice of beautiful Peru. It was (literally) breathtaking, mystical, and surprisingly tasty. Below is a short synopsis of my dining experiences and a few spectacular views. Hope you enjoy.

After arriving at Inkallpa Valle Sagrado Lodge & Spa I enjoyed a few light bites in their restaurant. They were divine.

Urpi Pizzeria Restaurant where you will witness the wood for the traditional terracotta oven chopped by your tableside if you order their homemade pizza. I enjoyed delicious fresh cut french fries and one of the better breaded chicken dishes I have had in some time.

This is just a taste of what Peru has to offer. Go there and see for yourself. If you go to any of the restaurants I’ve recommended, tell them Bluejeanfoodcritic sent you!

Good & Evil Chocolate Bar

I am not a fan of chocolate candy and have always thought chocoholics were crazy. Well I am here to apologize to everyone of you. This chocolate bar is out of this world! I’m hooked. It’s from Anthony Bourdain who has a new show called The Taste airing on ABC Tuesday, January 22nd, famous Chef Eric Ripert, and christopher curtin. It’s called Good/Evil from Peru made by Éclat Chocolate.
