Peruvian Cuisine is renowned around the world as being one of the best, though there are some dishes that may not be apt for the faint of heart.
Imagine you are in Peru looking through a menu in Spanish and you come across Cuy.
Hmm, I don’t know what it is but I’ll give it a go.
Then after a while a dish is placed in front of you like in the photo above. What would you do?
Cuy is in fact Guinea Pig… roasted not stirred.
Jeannie Oliver has tried this dish (the photo above is hers) and said it has a “texture of chicken, taste of mild pork”. And as she said “It pays to spit out the teeth!”
Remember folks, don’t try this at home… neighbours get nasty when you steal their kid’s pet.
If I had the chance, I’d definitely give Cuy a try, would you?
If this dish were served to you at a restaurant, would you eat it?
