Top photo • A line of people at the third annual Peru Fest wait Saturday for rositas picarones, a traditional Peruvian fried pastry made of sweet potatoes and squash, cooked by Rosa Calderon, left, who learned how to make them from her grandmother as a young girl in Lima, Peru. The annual Peru Fest in West Valley City celebrated Peruvian Independence Day and brought a little bit of the Andes Mountains to the Wasatch Range, with Peruvian arts and vendors.
