“The Ministry of Culture noted that the decision was made after a process of dialogue and evaluation of a working group that decided the nomination of this dish as a ‘representative element’ of the country’s traditional cuisine”, Gestión wrote.
This postulation occurs to ensure the conservation, protection and promotion of the ingredients, practices and customs that are involved in the production of the dish.
“Peru is a very diverse country which is reflected in its cuisine. It has been difficult to choose an element among the multiple options of our culinary heritage,” said
He added that, finally, ceviche was chosen “for its wide recognition as a manifestation of the traditional cuisine, its great nutritional contribution and its importance for the development of artisanal fishing and family farming”, as you can read in Gestión.
