In Peru, Christmas Eve is a very joyful time. Christmas carols play in the streets as shoppers buy their last few Christmas gifts, and firework displays are set off all throughout the night. The most important time is midnight, when families usually celebrate with a toast, presents, and of course, Peruvian food.

With Christmas just two days away, we’ve decided to share some Peruvian Christmas traditions on our blog. Peruvians usually celebrate Christmas Eve as the most important day of the holiday season, and parties can last very late into the night. It is a tradition to cook a turkey or chicken as the main course of the Christmas feast. Peruvian hot chocolate and panettone are special treats at Christmas time as well. Paneton is a sweet bread with pieces of candied fruit inside. Traditional Peruvian desserts such as flan and alfajores cookies may also be served for the holiday. Stop by our CT Peruvian Restaurant for a taste of authentic caramel flan or alfajores this week, and get a taste of Peru!

When people try Peruvian food for the first time, many of them are curious about why many dishes are served with both white rice and french fries. They often wonder whether it is a choice by the chef at the particular restaurant they are trying. However, eating dishes such as Lomo Saltado with rice and fries is an authentic Peruvian tradition. Lomo Saltado would not be Lomo Saltado without both the rice and the french fries that come with it. Potatoes have been a main staple of the Peruvian diet for centuries – thousands of different types of potatoes are native to Peru. Rice has also been an important part of Peruvian cuisine, especially since an increasing number of Asian immigrants influenced Peruvian cuisine in the 18th century. With potatoes, rice, and tender meat or fish, Peruvian cuisine is filled with tempting comfort foods. Lomo Saltado is the most popular meat dish at our Norwalk CT restaurant.

If you love Papa a la Huancaina, try ordering an extra side of Huancaina sauce with an order of Milanesa de Pollo. The aji amarillo and cheese in the creamy sauce goes perfectly with the tender chicken. You can also use it as a sauce for french fries or white rice. Papa a la Huancaina is one of the most popular appetizers at Fiesta Limena. Named for the area it originated in, Huancayo, it is an authentic and traditional dish. As one of the most unique Fairfield County restaurants, Fiesta Limena is proud to serve cuisine from Peru.

Many famous Peruvian dishes developed because of the use of native ingredients, such as aji amarillo and fresh fruit. Peru exports more and more of these ingredients each year, to countries across the globe. Look for produce from Peru at your local market – international foodies are raving about everything from Peruvian asparagus to Peruvian mangos. Ingredients like aji amarillo paste are also available at local super markets. Of course, Fiesta Limena uses the freshest and most authentic ingredients available, so when you’re in the mood to dine out, stop by our Norwalk CT restaurant.
