What a dream!
Condensing this 3 hour experience into a 10 min video was such a fun challenge.
Chef Virgilio Martinez’s Central is one of the best restaurants in the entire world. Central’s tasting menu is structured to celebrate and highlight different levels of elevation in Peru, from the Andes mountains to the Amazon rainforest. All of the ingredients are native to Peru.

We had a wonderful experience at Maido, the 7th best restaurant in the world. We did not get a chance to do the tasting menu, though the a la carte options were still fantastic. Just another excuse to come back to Peru soon!
