Culinary lovers flocked to the Sacred Valley in Peru this week as Inkaterra and Peruvian NGO, Mater Iniciativa, hosted the first “Momento Andes” event in Peru.

The foodie event, which took place from February 16 to19 at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba, Moment Andes, the first event of its kind, brought together chefs, academics, artists, craftsmen, farmers and entrepreneurs for a series of workshops with the goal of enhancing understanding of the traditional Peruvian skills and how they relate to the South American food scene today.
