Not everyone appreciates small-eats, but I was delighted by the modest amounts of food on my plate, which meant I could look forward to each course, knowing I’d leave the table with a spring in my step instead of a carb-fuelled heave-ho.
My favourite dish was a char-grilled beef Pachamana, each succulent mouthful exploding with Huacatay herbs, a hint of chilli and a lot of smoke. This was accompanied by a sublime piped mash, whipped into fluffy puffs and topped with airy white cheese mousse and a sprinkle of black quinoa. Yet another graceful floral garnish gave this dish an almost weightless feel.
