What makes Peruvian cuisine? Into the pot go a centuries-long conversation between our ancestors and nature, the intermingling of migratory peoples, and a bountiful range of ingredients. Chef Gastón Acurio, his home country’s culinary ambassador, is releasing a book telling us all about it: “Peru”.
There are many ways to show love to your lover – throwing a lasso around the moon and pulling it down for them or playing "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel under their bedroom window. But the date that never fails to swoon is a table at a romantic restaurant, somewhere special, with someone special.
Peruvian chef, Gastón Acurio is a man of many parts. He is not merely the man behind Astrid y Gastón, the restaurant that pioneered the way for Peruvian food worldwide. The multiplicity of his individuality needs its own name. Gastónomy, perhaps, the art of changing the world through cooking.
