Gastón Acurio, Peruvian Chef

Peru’s booming gastronomic scene driving growth in tourism, exports and agriculture

6 June 2019

In this Global Platform video, Gastón Acurio, Peruvian Chef, talks about the evolution and prospects of Peruvian gastronomy, and its role in driving the economy and the country’s presence on the global stage. A unique blend of various cultures, Peruvian cuisine is finding its place among major cities across the world and has helped to promote the capital city of Lima as a top tourist destination. The growing reputation of Peruvian gastronomy is also driving global demand for Peruvian food products, which are expected to remain integral to the development of the local export industry and small-scale agriculture.

Transcript:

The cuisine, the gastronomy, as we understand it today, which is the one that the world knows, is the result of the wonderful miscegenation that we have in Peru. I mean, at the beginning it was the encounter between Europe and America. Then, migration start coming from all over the world – the Afro-Peruvian community, the Chinese community, then the Italian community, the Japanese community, the Jewish community, the Arab community – and suddenly this magical episode occurs in the homes of Peruvians where we were able to integrate all cultures that arrived to Peru and those who lived in Peru around dishes that make us unique.
