Carlo Carozzi, originally from Lima, lived in Scotland, United Kingdom, for nearly 20 years and is now bringing to Edinburgh (a city in Scotland) Peruvian flavors for everyone to enjoy.
“With a passion for food and a desire to bring authentic cooking from his home country of Peru to these shores, Edinburgh-based entrepreneur Carlo Carozzi set out to create something truly unique with his own food offering”, a story in Edinburgh News explained.
Carozzi is an aspiring cook and told the media that he has always struggled to find a place where the flavors of the traditional Peruvian cuisine are served.
“Although five of the world’s top restaurants are in Lima, my home town, I couldn’t find anywhere here that served the food I grew up with,” he said.
He then decided to experiment and cook the dishes his mother and grandmother used to make back home. This is how he inaugurated the first Peruvian street food stall in Scotland.
Carozzi then took a new step by participating in the Edinburgh Festival in 2017. He took an online course on catering, created a logo and went for it, naming his entrepreneurship “The Peruvian”.
“Soon, Carlo said that Edinburgh’s Peruvian community came from all over the capital to try out the food and show their support”, said Edinburgh News. His street business continues to grow and he hopes someday to own his own restaurant.
