Inca Kola: A principal food group in any Peruvian’s diet 
 Knife in hand, I gaze upon the 18 ‘paltas’ in front of me wondering yet again how I landed myself in this situation. “Guacamole for 30 people? Ya, no problem!” Ah, my big mouth. At this point in my life, I shouldn’t be surprised, and as I prepare for the task that awaits I can’t help but shake my head and laugh. I quickly sharpen my blade, crank up the reggaeton, and head towards the cutting board like an executioner anxious for work. Long live guacamole.
