In Quechua, the native language of the Inca Indians of Peru, “Qusqo” literally means: “the belly of the world, the center of ourishment.” The Inca Indians’ gods were the sun, moon, and mother earth. Because the Incas did not care for gold or the concept of wealth, they celebrated their gods by valuing food, art, and chicha (an Andean drink). As the most advanced pre-Hispanic civilization in Peru, the Incas were able to control most of the region by incorporating the best traditions of each civilization they conquered with their own; leadership was maintained by keeping their people satisfied in knowing that such traditions were received and honored. The Peruvian people continued this custom by integrating the cuisine of all the cultures that inhabited Peru, with their own. Spanish, African, Chinese, and Japanese ingredients have been infused with Peruvian dishes to be the ‘Comida Criolla’(Creole Cooking)of Peru
