#3. Crema Volteada – Peruvian Caramel Custard
Crema Volteada means “Upside down cream” or “flipped cream”. Why do they call it “flipped”? Because after mixing, steaming and cooling the milk and egg base, the mix is actually “flipped over” a plate. Wow.
The delightful Crema Volteada is a quintessential item in the cafes which have proliferated in Lima. Perhaps the most delicious part is the caramel over the top. The French have their own version: the crème caramel.
