REUNITING A COUNTRY NEVER TASTED ANY BETTER! In Peru, cooking and eating go beyond the kitchen.The nation's passion for food transcends pots and pans,Peru finds in its cuisine its missing ingredient: A way to celebrate being Peruvian. A way to love, show respect and be proud.

 

MISTURA, the gastronomic fair that happens in Lima every September, is the best example. A place where cooks and patrons passionately teach us not only about food but most importantly about LIFE.
