The Best of Books, Cookbooks and Movies about Peru www.compassandfork.comOur Hand Picked Selection of Books, Cookbooks and Movies about Peru

Books are a great way to both learn about a destination and relive the memories once you return home. This month we hand pick the best of books, cookbooks and movies about Peru to help get you in the mood for the destination we will feature on Compass & Fork in early 2016.

We have 4 featured categories: fiction, non-fiction, movies and cookbooks. These are all listed below and are in the Compass & Fork shop as well. (You can find these collections from previous destinations in the shop as well.)

Many of these recommendation we have read or watched either to prepare or as we traveled through Peru. Others are popular recommendations. Often when you are in a destination, books will be available that are not distributed internationally, buy these to take home. A book or cookbook can make a great memory of your trip.

Disclosure: These links are to Amazon. I have selected the main link, but you can order it in different formats from that link (kindle, hardback, paperback). These are affiliate links. This means the price you pay is the same but by ordering from our site we receive a small commission from your purchase. Thank you for your support we really appreciate it, affiliate income is one way we offset the costs of running Compass & Fork.

So without further ado . . .

Fiction Books about Peru

A novel is a great way to explore a place, perhaps in a different era to get the history, or in the present day to help better understand the culture. A great story can really make a place come alive.
