To dine at Hacienda Huayoccari is to enjoy the hospitality of a traditional Peruvian family. Each guest - on their own or as part of a group of hundreds - is received by a member of the family. Here they will taste authentic homemade Peruvian food in unique surroundings: the private room, with colourful Colonial wood carvings and crosses on its walls, or the large dining room, with Viceregal enameled pottery jars and saucers from the floor to the ceiling, surrounded by picture windows looking out onto the garden, with an unparalelled view of the Urquillos vale and the Sacred Valley
In the comfort of home
In order to ensure that every guest feels at ease, each group is provided with a separate buffet in a differentiated area, or is served in the dining room reserved for small groups. Each buffet table is laden with simple and stylish platters, samovars holding fragrant stews and vibrant salads made with vegetables grown in the estate. “This is home food. As your grandmother would make”, says Ana María Barberis, who has composed the menu based on her family recipes and those of her mother-in-law, María Cristina Orihuela de Lambarri. The simplicity of these Peruvian delicacies is deceitful; behind each dish are hours of preparation, careful work and much knowledge. These authentic flavours are nowadays hard to find.
Here you can find Peruvian classics such as an exquisite trout and tuna causa, a delectable ají de gallina or a succulent lomo saltado. But also regional dishes such as sara lawa (an Andean white corn creamy soup) or a tender, rich pork chop with a fava bean capchi, just as it is served by a Cusco family. The chicken roulade in elderberry sauce and the steamed trout with capers are different ways to savour local delicacies in all their glory. The meal ends with a selection of dainty Peruvian desserts: volador, custard apple meringue, a cheesecake with elderberries grown in the estate. Wash them down with an infusion from the herb garden or a cup of black café pasado, a traditional Peruvian coffee brewing method, in which coffee drips slowly, drop by drop. From beginning to end, this is what it’s like to dine at the table of an old Peruvian family. The fireplace is lit up at night to make you feel cozy and warm.
