What does the name AMA mean?

The origin of the name AMA can be traced back over 2,000 years ago, when women who free-dove for oysters and pearls along the Japanese coastline were dubbed "AMA," which translates to "sea women" in Japanese. But how do Peruvian flavours fit into the picture? During the 20th century, a significant number of Japanese immigrants relocated to Peru, which marked the beginning of the renowned Nikkei cuisine - Japanese dishes prepared with Peruvian ingredients.
