      Yes, you are right. This list is definitely not accurate and not trustful. Peruvian cuisine is today one of the best in the world, not only for its rich flavor but for its very delicious ingredients. Just to name a few of its best dishes: cebiche (tasty marinated fish), cuy (crunchy guinea pig), papa a la huancaina ( cheese and hot pepper sauce on boiled potatoes), rocoto relleno (stuffed hot peppers), lomo saltado ( marinated sirloin, fries, onion, and tomato strips), pollo a la brasa ( Peruvian style BBQ chicken), etc.
      For those who don’ t know it, try and you will see.

  20. Mariajosé says:

    Y la comida peruana???

  21. bruno says:

    Chinese, Mexican and Italian… These three are an absolute basis for world cuisine all over, as they represent the best of their continents. Many other cuisines are derivations: I love Thai and Japanese, but Chinese is seminal. So is Mexican, above and beyond any other Latin American cuisine (sorry, Peru tries extremely hard… tastes Chinese, Japanese, even a cheap imitation of Mexican). And Italy has an amazing, basic simplicity and high quality of its ingredients; French food is great, but Italian food steals your heart.

  22. Joseph says:

    Douma and Hammana are actually villages in Lebanon and not Lebanese food. it looks like some restaurant owner at some place in the world decided to name his dishes by Lebanese villages name.

  23. Don Haswell says:

    The article re Australia is rubbish. The so called commonly used ingredients are not commonly used at all. I never even saw quince paste! Meat pies and hamburgers are only fast, take-away foods. Beef steak and lamb, plus chicken and sea foods, are the most popular. And what happened to Japanese teppan-yaki? That’s the best for me!
