Peru Makes a Case for Gastrodiplomacy

Our round-up of news, notes, tips, and Tweets exhibiting how public diplomacy affects the world each and every day.

Peter-Callahan-Member-of-Chef-Corps-Diplomatic-Culinary-Partnership1-e1349063996671The Peruvian capital has become a gastronomic mecca. Until recently, tourists headed straight for Cusco, the former Inca capital, and the ruins of Machu Picchu. Now some 75,000 visit Lima every year solely to enjoy its food, spending an average of $1,250 each, according to the tourist-industry association.

Gastronomy has become an export industry: several hundred Peruvian restaurants, many of them franchises, have been set up across the world in the past decade, according to Apega, the industry lobby.
