A few weeks ago we got a taste of Peruvian cuisine with Chef Jaime Pesaque during Flavors of the World Peru, and this week on Friday, December 2nd we’ll have the opportunity for more amazing dishes from the region since Chinois is hosting a Peruvian buffet with guest-chef Freddy Padovani from Cuzco, Peru! 

Chef Padovani who worked in Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness as a chef, which is part of the Aranwa Hotels Resorts & Spas, will bring a varied menu of delicacies from Peru. He’ll be assisted by Patricia Proaño, who is a Casa de Campo community member and her father is from Peru. She knows a lot about the country’s gastronomy and was particularly interested in acting as a sous-chef during this event after having had assisted to a private tasting with local restaurants owners at Chinois. Following the tasting, this upcoming Peruvian menu was elaborated. See it below and find everything there is to try at this Friday’s Peruvian buffet in Chinois:
