Title
Cooking Practices in High Sierra, Peru
Authors (non HEDON members)
Simon Burne
Abstract
Canas and Espinar are two districts of Cuzco Province in the High Sierra of Peru. At altitudes of 4,000 - 4,500 metres, the place is icy cold at night and hot and dry by day. No trees grow and the grass is pale yellow through lack of rain. The people live on potatoes, small amounts of grain and from the produce of their llamas, cattle and sheep. While a few get rich at the mines in the area, the vast majority are crushingly poor and with very little chance of improving things.
