Adventures in Peru ~ Cuy


Cuy




For us guinea pig is a furry little animal we sometimes keep as a pet.  Not so in South America, particularly Peru.  Peruvians eat it as a delicacy.  It's often served in honor of a birthday meal.  The last week we were there, the girls and I finally tried it.  Though I wouldn't say it's discusting... I'm not going to say it was good either.   The meat was very greasy and not a lot of taste.  The Alpaca we tried on another occasion was much, much better!
