A Peruvian Food Festival will take place in Beijing and Chengdú, China for two weeks starting July 23 to showcase typical plates from the Andean region.
Chefs Raymundo Curo and Mariano López will delight visitors with Pisco Sour cocktails, ceviche, alfajores, quinoa, lomo saltado, among others.
The fair will occur in Beijing from July 23 to 29, and in the city of Chengdú from August 3 to 8. In it, “Mariano López will handle the salty dishes, while Reymundo Curo will be in charge of the pastry area”, explained La Vanguardia.
“Peru and China have been integral strategic partners since 2014 and we have signed a free trade agreement since 2010, so the relationship between these two countries is very rich and solid,” said Jaime Casafranca, minister counselor of the Peruvian embassy, in the opening event, according to the aforementioned media.
One of the objectives for this event is to strengthen ties with the Asian country through culinary culture. Since China is currently the third largest export market in Latin America, it is an opportunity to promote Peru aiming to attract new visitors.
La Vanguardia also said that the increase in agricultural exports is expected to help create 1.3 million jobs in Peru in 2018, up 15 percent year-on-year, according to the Association of Exporters of the Andean country.
