With the aim of introducing India to the diversity of the Peruvian cuisine, four cookbooks, that promise to take you through an exciting journey that celebrates one of the most awarded cuisines of the world, were unveiled in the presence of the Ambassador of the Republic of Peru, Jorge Castañeda. The event took place at the Art Gallery of the Embassy of Peru and the exhibit was followed by a cooking demonstration and dinner, prepared skillfully by the chef with delectable Peruvian ingredients such as purple corn, quinoa and pisco.
The recipes in the four cookbooks are based on rice, corn, potato and traditional Peruvian specialties and how they have evolved over the years. Peru has been consistently recognised as the world’s best culinary destination for six consecutive years, including this year, at the prestigious World Travel Awards and considered by many to be the Oscars of the tourism sector. This recognition, helped place Peru over and above other international gastronomic giants like France, Italy and even India. The cookbooks are available at the Embassy of Peru.
