I’ll be cooking a Peruvian dish for my grandparents this weekend and I need suggestions. This will be my first time cooking a Peruvian cuisine and I badly need your help on what to cook. My grandma loves a foreign dish, so I’m thinking a Peruvian dish is a breath of fresh air. What should I make them that they will surely drool over?

Gotta be Pisco. After a couple of those you could feed them McDonalds and they would feel at home.

I don't recall all the food being distinctly different from what I was already used to, but the few things that were unique were....
...Guinea pig. The meat had been roasted in some fashion then added to a stew-like stir fry dish. Tasty, but full of bones.
...llama steak. Tough but tasty.
...poke. I think it's called ceviche there. Diced up raw fish marinated in acidic juices, citrus in flavor, rather than vinegary. Hot peppers, onions, garlic. Very much like Hawaiian poke.
...spicy or sweet peppers in most dishes.
...Inka Cola. We saw this being sold everywhere.
...roast chicken that had been marinated with soy sauce, peppers, and spices. We had several variations of this and it was always good.
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
