Classic Peru in a modern setting at Astrid and Gaston (Lima, Peru)

Little did I know about the Peruvian cusine before coming to Peru except that it was the birthplace of patatoes, they grow cacao and they love ceviche. At Astrid and Gaston they were going to teach me a lot more and showing me the different part that make up the Peruvian kitchen.

 

There were not at all the same display of technical skills as Central or Maido. The focus was on great flavors which they achieved to a very large extent. I left Astrid and Gaston with a smile on my face.

    Gaston Acurio is the creator of the modern wave of Peruvian Food and going to Astrid y Gaston is like visiting Graceland if you’re a musician. Wonderful food in an excellent setting. Peruvian Food is the best in the world, literally. (from a non-Peruvian)
