Around the world soup is the ultimate comfort food. It makes us feel home, nourishes, revitalizes, strengthens, warms and just makes us better. In Peru it is even more than this; it's part of the Peruvian culinary history and tradition. They eat soup at home as the main dish, in some areas as breakfast or as delicious starter.
We assume that there are around 2000 different soups in Peru. This variety reflects the rich biodiversity of Peru with its three main geographical zones (the coast, the Andean highland and the jungle) and the fusion of influences from different times and immigrant cultures. As in the whole Peruvian cuisine, each region has its own native or adapted ingredients using it for distinct soups.
