Peruvian Gastronomy Stood Out In Fair In Argentina


Peru participated as a guest country in the eighth edition of Argentina’s most important gastronomy fair “Masticar” where it stood out among the rest of the participants of the event.

The fair took place last weekend in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, according to Andina News Agency, and more than 150,000 people attended the gastronomy event.

The foreign affairs ministry in Argentina said to the media that “it is the first time that the event (…) considers a country or a foreign entity as a guest”.

Seven chefs, led by Gastón Acurio and Virgilio Martínez, participated in the fair. They were accompanied by José del Castillo, Jorge Muñoz, Javier Ampuero, Tomás Matsufuji, Matías Cillóniz and the bartender Manuel Cigarróstegui, founder of the Peruvian Cocktail Institute.

The aforementioned professionals gave master classes at the fair, as well as the Argentine School of Sommeliers (EAS) and the Argentine Institute of Gastronomy (IAG), entities with which a cooperation work will be initiated to promote pisco and gastronomy in this country.

In addition, Peruvian restaurants in Buenos Aires, “La Mar” and “Chan-Chan”, were selected by the organizers of the fair to present the most representative of Peruvian cuisine during the dates of the event.
