This class has been postponed for later in the Fall.
Join Guido Escurra from Lima, Peru as he introduces us to Peruvian cuisine and shows us how to make Quinoto in Aji Amarillo Sauce, one of the “fusion dishes” that have made Peru a top culinary destination.
Most of us are familiar with risotto, made with rice. Quinoto is a similar dish, an example of the Italian influence but made with quinoa. In addition to the Quinoto, Guido will make a simple Peruvian fish dish and then we'll have a chance to taste them!
Peru’s natural biodiversity, along with the cultural diversity of its people has resulted in a cuisine that is capturing the world's attention. In a recent ranking, five of the world's best restaurants were located in Peru.
