Peruvian desserts were born upon the arrival of Spaniards to America. They brought ingredients such as sugar, milk and flour. Besides this, they also shared European, Arab and Hindus techniques to prepare different kind of desserts.

I personally support those Peruvian entrepreneurs who risk to open their own businesses. They do know the potential of our Peruvian food and therefore they do not think over it twice in order to set it up for pursuing their American dream.
