The cuisine of South America continent can be briefly discussed in four broad gastronomic regions like the Northwest South America, North Central South America, Southern South America and Brazil.
  • Northwest South America: The Northwest South American comprises of especially the Andean Mountain nations of Ecuador, Bolivia, and Peru. All these South American regions offer some of the most exotic food dishes and recipes in Latin America. One of the highly nutritious grain quinoa which is originated here accompanied with more than 100 different varieties of potatoes have become the main and exclusive food ingredients of the trendy chefs in Northwest South America. Peru in the same region here is also famous for some of the hot and spiciest food in South America. In this region a large Japanese community has also influenced Peruvian cooking.
  • North Central South America: Colombia and Venezuela of the North Central South America majorly influences the Spanish cuisine. The regions dominant seasonings like cumin, oregano, cinnamon, and anise came directly from Spain. Many dishes in northeastern South America, such as tamales, feature a contrast of sweet and salty tastes like the raisins, prunes, capers, and olives). Plus, the combination of Spanish rice and Venezuela's Superb Seafood gives rise to some of the world's best paella.
  • Southern South America: Southern South America comprises of the region like Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. It’s known as the cattle country, and the locals enjoy luscious grass-fed beef in the form of asados, large cuts roasted in front of a campfire, and parrilladas, thick, juicy steaks grilled on a gridiron over blazing oak. And though the accompaniments are quite simple, they're intensely flavorful: a tomato, onion, and pepper relish known as salsa criolla and pestolike parsley, garlic, and vinegar sauce called Chimichurri. But there's more to the region's gastronomy than just beef. Consider Sopa Paraguaya, a Paraguayan corn bread that closely resembles North American corn pudding. Chile, a Pacific coastline, is a haven for fish lovers.
  • Brazil: The Cuisine of Brazil is as diverse as its population. Portuguese settlers popularized such European ingredients as olives, onions, garlic, wine, and bacalhau (salt cod). The natives of Brazil's rain forests taught the Europeans how to enjoy such exotic tropical vegetables and fruits as madioca (cassava root), maracuja (passion fruit), and caju (cashew fruit). African slaves contributed okra, yams, peanuts, dried shrimp, and dende (palm oil) to the Brazilian melting pot, not to mention a passion for fiery malagueta chile peppers. Their influence lives on in the popular Moqueca de Peixe, a sort of bouillabaisse from the state of Bahia in northern Brazil, flavored with garlic, cilantro, and coconut milk.
