Truth be told, I tried to avoid this for as long as possible! From day one, we’d all decided we would have to try the Peruvian culinary delicacy that is Cuy – Roasted Guinea pig. 🐹  Thing is, my only experiences with guinea pigs has been as fluffy, furry pets so the idea of eating … Continue Reading

For starters – very hard! Not impossible (far from actually) but still hard.
