Kansas University students visited USIL and the Cusco Extension Center

Through the Vice Presidency of International Relations, USIL provides various programs tailored to its international partners, which are part of the more than 270 strategic alliances. Last month, USIL received seven students and a teacher from Kansas University, United States, who spent three days in Lima and eight days at the USIL Cusco International Extension Center, where international students study semester and summer programs in this Andean City.

The program, Sensorial Analysis of Food Products, included conferences, excursions and activities focused on Peruvian products and gastronomy, as well as different aspects of Peruvian culture, customs and history.

The program was designed to provide foreign students with all the information about our main regional cuisine and mainly our traditional ingredients and produce. During this program, students learned how to use and apply the basic ingredients of Peruvian cuisine through demonstrative classes and practical activities. In addition, participants were able to prepare typical Peruvian dishes, such as anticuchos, ceviche, lomo saltado and many others.

The experience was complemented with Academic visits to places of cultural interest in Cusco, where students were able to be fully immersed our rich culture and traditions while sharing their own culture with the local community.
