There's no question culinary travel is on the rise, whether it's an entirely foodie-focused trip or just a cooking class incorporated into a cultural itinerary. Elyse Pasquale, Huffington Post Food and Travel Writer, gives a shout out to the rising (and underrated!) culinary stars Antigua, Guatemala and Lima, Peru in her blog post Top 7 Places to Travel for Food. She writes. . .
"Mayan culture is at the heart of the cuisine with recipes dating back thousands of years. Slow-cooked, multi-layered stews like the creamy, pepper-based subanik or pepian, a spicy chicken soup, are the cornerstones of Antigua's traditional food . . . 
Considered South America's culinary star, Lima's cuisine shines even at its most modest, from anticuchos, skewered beef hearts grilled street-side to pork-stuffed bodega sandwiches and late-night churros dipped in bitter chocolate."
