14 Jun Celebrating 196 years of Peruvian independency – Sunday July 30th 1pm – 4pm

The influence of Spain in Peruvian cuisine.

Pastuso Restaurant will join The Pep Alliance to celebrate Peruvian Independence Day in a unique collaboration between Alejandro Saravia of Pastuso and Jesse Gerner from Bomba.

This exceptional collaboration promises to be a celebration of Peruvian culture and the important influence that Spain has had and continues to have in the South American cuisine.

Join us to explore where the Andean mountains meet the Mediterranean sea.

We will discuss how these two cuisines have come to influence each other over the centuries. Hilary McNevin from Pep Events will moderate a discussion and a Q&A with the two chefs.
