The great variety of products that grow far and wide throughout our territory, and the creativity that emerges from all Peruvians when it comes to the culinary, are the fabulous features that distinguish our cuisine. Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel is proud to introduce you to the magnificent gastronomic world through presentations, flavors, textures, and aromas that will dazzle your senses.
On the one hand, Sumaq has an abundant variety of delights to offer you in our exclusive Qunuq restaurant.

Write to firstname.lastname@example.org to take a trip to the potato cultivation fields in the historic Sacred Valley of the Incas under the guidance of Manuel Choqque, a renowned expert farmer of native potatoes in the region. Here, you can taste typical dishes and fermented beverages, all made with potatoes. In this opportunity, you will not only come close to the Andean communities and their traditions, but also you will learn of the role of social responsibility that Sumaq has with the local community, because we recognize tourism as a tool for regional development. This is why we value the work and production of the farmers, respect fair trade, and encourage the consumption of native products through the use of these ingredients in our kitchen.
