Meals along the Inca Trail

OUR MEALS ALONG THE INCA TRAIL


With ITEP each day we awake the smell of something fantastic cooking in the chefs tents and it was this smell (and maybe the warm coca tea).


Meals along the Trek

It is also important to note that if you have any food allergies or happen to be a vegetarian or vegan, ITEP will cater to you along the way.

SAMPLE MENU

  • Pancakes with caramel drizzle that represented a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca lines Desert (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) in southern Peru.

  • Andean Chuta Bread (traditional bread baked in colonial ovens)
  • Omelets stuffed with peppers, celery, carrots, radishes and cheese

Our breakfast

Our snack pack included:

Following our daily breakfast, our chefs prepared little care packages for us to take along our journey to snack on. These little packages came in handy when you just need a little pick me up before continuing on your journey.

  • Bananas
  • Chocolate Bars, Sublime (I highly recommend you stock up on these to take home with you)
  • Candies – think Jolly Ranchers
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Granola Bars
  • Apples
  • Juice

Our snack pack

Our lunch selection included:.

After hiking for sometimes 4 hours before a full meal, our lunches always had a great balance of just enough protein and the quantity control (never wanted to be so full you just felt like sleeping). Our chefs came up with some excellent dishes including:

  • Asparagus Cream Soup
  • Quinoa Soup
  • Vegetable Soup
  • Peruvian Chicken Salad
  • Native Peruvian Potato Chili with Rice & Spinach Cake
  • Chicken Rolls
  • Vegetable Salads
  • Russian Salads

Our lunch selecction

After lunches, we continued our hike along the trail for sometimes 4 more hours before reaching camp. After settling into our tents (and cleaning ourselves up), we enjoyed traditional teatime that happened at 5pm and instantly put us in a relaxing mood. These teatime sessions included:

  • An assortment of teas (Coca, Anis, Manzanilla, Te Puro)
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Freshly baked cookies
  • Crackers with marmalade, honey and butter
  • Popcorn
  • Crispy Wontons

Our teatime sessions

Our Dinner selection included:

Our final culinary experience of the day would come at dinnertime with various wonderful three-course meals. Nestled in their tent, our talented team of chefs would compile the following dishes with only an aid of a flashlight and a minimalist propane torch.

  • Potato Soup
  • Rice and Vegetable Soup
  • Andean Corn Soup – more like a chowder
  • Steamed trout in a mushroom sauce served with garden vegetables
  • Lightly fried chicken with fresh cut potato chips
  • Stir-fried noodles with mushrooms and steamed kale
  • Apple and Cinnamon Pudding
  • Chocolate Cake and Pudding
  • Gelatin (yes, Jello in the middle of the mountain range!)
