The fair will take place at Parque de la Exposicion and will contribute to promote the good taste of Peruvian food prepared in both exclusive restaurants and in “Carretillas” (Food Stands); and at low prices.

Famous chef and President of the Peruvian Gastronomical Association (Apega) Gaston Acurio said that 35 restaurants and 100 “Carretillas” from different parts of the country will participate in Mistura Fair.

“In Carretillas we found the guardians of our tradition and without them, we as cookers do not exist. It is so important the figure of a woman who prepares “Anticuchos” (Beef Kebabs) in the streets, as the figure of a cooker in Miraflores district,” the organizer of this event, Gaston Acurio said.

He added that social differences are also represented in gastronomy, that is why it was necessary that high-price restaurants can be available for all the public.
