Peruvian cuisine also reflects local practices and ingredients, including influences from the indigenous population including the Inca. Immigrants from Spain, Italy, Germany, Asia and West Africa have made their impact, too. Without the familiar ingredients from their home countries, immigrants modified their traditional recipes by using ingredients available in Peru. This has made for a very interesting palate of flavors.
