Fragrant, inviting aroma
You could mistaken it for suckling pig
(it was almost the same size!)
...and then upon closer inspection you notice the small ears, the elongated, chisel-like incisors, not much meat and the taste... well its similar to the brown flesh of chicken- fatty, flavoursome or fetid to some.
Most of you may have noticed the lack of posts from me of late, but here is the first of several food fawning adventures abroad from Magic G and I's recent trip to Peru. Will try to share the wonderful different dishes sampled on our tour and what better way to start that with roasted cuy (guinea pig). At least it wasn't one of those buffalo sized guinea pigs that roamed ancient Venezuela.
