Forbes: Top 10 Food Trends For 2012

8 of 11

Peruvian as the "It" Cuisine

“It's the talk of the food trades,” says Maggie Nemser, founder of the restaurant review and deal site BlackboardEats. Credit Chef Ricardo Zarate with energizing the Peruvian food trend at his LA restaurants MoChica (opened 2009) and Picca (2011). Chef Kevin Humphreys of Teton Mountain Lodge in Jackson Hole, WY explains "Peruvian cuisine is melting pot of flavors and techniques.” Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and indigenous Andean all fit in - in preps from potato cakes to stir-fried noodles, skewers to ceviche. Look for ingredients as diverse as yuzu, sweet potatoes (and dozens of other potato varieties), chilies, wasabi, quinoa, tomato, pumpkin and soy sauce beef – any of which might be topped with a fried egg. Chefs nationwide are running with this creative cooking, such as Richard Sandoval at his newest venture, Raymi in New York City.
