Today mothers that cook from 12 different eateries in Lima are competing for a cooking space at Mistura in the Teresa Izquierdo contest.
The restaurants are located in the districts of Comas, Carabayllo, Rímac, El Agustino, San Juan de Miraflores, Chorrillos, Ate and Santa Anita, reports El Comercio
With the support from the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion, the contest saw 136 different associations sign up to compete to win one of the three spots to cook at a booth at Mistura.
The Peruvian Society of Gastronomy (Apega) organized the contest in 2012 to promote the female cooks of the eateries of Lima. These women work and live in regions where some children are undernourished or abandoned to live in the streets.
The 12 different eateries are competing today and will be chosen on their abilities to prepare an aesthetically pleasing dish, to prepare a creative dish and to execute the dishes with a high regard for sanitation.
The participants competing today include Sol y Luna (Ate), Santa Claudia (El Agustino), Santa Rosa de Lima del Sol (Santa Anita), Cocina Familiar 89 (Santa Anita), Viña San Francisco (Santa Anita), Santa Isabel I (Carabayllo), Santa Luciana (Comas), 14 de Abril (Rímac), Cristo Única Esperanza (Carabayllo), María Parado de Bellido (Chorrillos), Comité de Damas Leoncio Prado (San Juan de Miraflores), Niño Jesús (San Juan de Miraflores) and Fomento Vecinal (San Juan de Miraflores).
The three winners will be chosen today.
