Eight chefs in one famous kitchen. Things are bound to get wild like the Amazon come November 15, when Astrid & Gastón opens its restaurant doors (and kitchen) for the sake of fundraising for an important conservation area in Peru’s rainforest.
The event, Una Noche Por Tambopata (A Night for Tambopata), was organized by Los TamboPatas, an initiative of the Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental (SPDA, Peruvian Society of Environmental Law), in part with the famed Peruvian restaurant. The mission of the fundraiser is to finance the Tambopata National Reserve and the workers who protect, defend and conserve the area, located in the Madre de Dios region. Spanning over a thousand protected square miles in southeastern Peru, an immense—and important—biodiversity can be found in the reserve, established nearly 20 years ago.
With a S/200 donation, attendees will be invited to the patio of Casa Moreyra, the historical mansion and current home to the Astrid & Gaston restaurant. Plates inspired by the Amazon will be prepared by an all-star roster of chefs: Virgilio Martinez (Central), Francesca Ferreyros (IK), Mayra Flores (Shizen Barra Nikkei), Rafael Casín (Inkaterra), José del Castillo (Isolina), Martha Palacios (Panchita), Pedro Miguel Schiaffino (amáZ) and the hosting restaurant’s own Jorge Muñoz.
A raffle will offer luxurious prizes and experiences, including an excursion to the reserve with Inkaterra and Rainforest Expedition; a dinner for five at Dánica; and hypnotizing artwork from Peruvian artist Harry Chávez.
