Perhaps the biggest tourist draw to Peru are the ancient archeological ruins of Machu Picchu, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of its rediscovery by explorer Hiram Bingham in 2011. Forgotten by the outside world for centuries and hidden from view by jungle overgrowth, the "Lost City of the Incas" languished in secrecy until Bingham brought the ancient ruins to international attention in 1911. While the Peruvian tourism board has been hard to work trying to make the country top of mind for adventure-seeking travellers, perhaps their best ambassador and PR officer is Peru's version of Jamie Oliver, Gaston Acurio, a chef and TV personality who enjoys rock star status in his country and has been busy exporting authentic Peruvian cuisine to the outside world in countries like Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Spain and the US. Peruvian cuisine has been described as a cross-pollination of Asian and Latin American influences: fusion Chinese and Peruvian cuisine is known as Chifa, while Japanese immigrants also birthed Nikkei cuisine and is touted as one of the food trends of 2012.
