A display of technical perfection at Central (Lima, Peru)

This was without of doubt one of the dinners I had looked forward to most in my “foodie” time, well Central was the primary reason for coming to Peru. I have always appreciated restaurants that bring something special that you can only experience in that one place. Virginilio … Mater Elevations is taking the terroir cooking to a new level and combining it with a very high technical level. To make it a complete experience the presentation of the dishes was a integrated part of the experiences often mimicking their natural environment.

 

All dishes were good and some were amazing. On several occations I did however think that there were too much focus on technical skills and presentation rather and just pure and simple delicious food. It was a memorable evening none the less.
