Menu offers taste of things to come from Peru
If the gastronomic soothsayers are to be believed, Peruvian cuisine is set to be the next big thing in the UK. London has seen an explosion of new Peruvian restaurants and cafés opening in recent months and hopefully this will soon start to filter out into the regional cities.
Peruvian food consists of a unique blend of influences including Chinese, Spanish and African, which is mixed with the South American country's native ingredients.
Bristol-based chef Rebecca Delgado has been cooking Peruvian food for several years.
She spent the last three years travelling around the Americas researching and cooking the local food and ran her own successful restaurant in Guatemala.

Now back in Bristol, Rebecca and her Peruvian husband Manuel are launching their Mamma Llama pop-up restaurant on June 16.
The event, which takes place at 40 Alfred Place in Kingsdown will feature a three-course menu of traditional Peruvian cuisine and also Peruvian beer and South American wines.
Seating will be communal to make it feel more like a Peruvian feast and a complimentary Pisco sour (a traditional drink of brandy, lime juice and bitters) will be served upon arrival.
The menu includes ceviche (marinated fish with pancetta and lemon and coriander oil) and abodo de cerdo (pork marinated and slow cooked in Peruvian spices with oven-baked rice).
It will also include alfajores, traditional Peruvian cookies flavoured with brandy.
Rebecca says: "Alfajores are a traditional Peruvian treat and are extremely popular street food throughout South America. They come in many sizes and flavours and I like to make mine as small bite-size cookies."
Mamma Llama takes place at 40 Alfred Place on June 16, 7pm. Tickets are £25 per person. To book, call 07799 135798 or email mammallamacatering@ yahoo.co.uk
