    several peculiar dishes which are not common

    As I am from Moscow, I would like to cover such topic as the Moscow cuisine, because it represents several peculiar dishes which are not common in the other parts of Russia.

    Do we need a comme before "which"? I think I can't use the comma there. Am I right? Also: what do you think about the sentence above?
    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    I don't know how you represent a dish, but it is probably better to say unusual rather than peculiar.

    Can we replace "it represents" with "we have"?

    Re: several peculiar dishes which are not common

    Yes. (In my humble opinion, the revised sentence is much better.)
