Tonight: Join me at a Pisco and Peruvian Gourmet Food Event Showcasing the Cuisine of Lima

Come to a fun and educational guided tasting event honoring the 477th Anniversary of the city of Lima, and discover why it was declared the “Gastronomic Capital of the Americas” at the International Gastronomic Summit Madrid Fusion.


Tasting includes:

Two Pisco-based cocktails

Tasting of five varieties of Pisco guided by Sommelier Juan Illescas

Causa Limeña de Pulpo. Exclusively found in Peruvian Cuisine, a cold, tangy, mildly spicy mash potato cake topped with olive mayo and octopus.

Anticucho. Of African origin and sold mostly by street vendors, an incomparable skewer of beautiful texture and mouthwatering flavor.

Surprise Dessert from Colonial Lima.
