Following great success last year, Dubai now hosts the second annual Festival Taste of Peru, February 26 until March 1.
This event – organized by Promperu (the Trade, Tourism and Investment Office of Peru) in Dubai – will showcase different gastronomic marvels of Peru including causa, anticucho, empanadas and ceviche,along with the well known Peruvian cocktail called pisco sour.
Taste of Peru has also been added to Dubai Food Carnival’s roster of events. “As far as we know we are the only country invited by Dubai Tourism and Cultural Authority to have an event like this as part of the festival,” said the director of PromPeru.
Peruvian cuisine is known as a melting pot of different cultures, flavors and techniques thanks to the arrival of European and Asian immigrants to Peru, many centuries ago.
