TORONTO Food aficionados will be thrilled to hear that one of the world’s highly praised styles of cuisine is “popping up” in Toronto at The Lounge @99 Sudbury. For four days only and second consecutive year, Peru Gourmet Canada brings the passion and art of Peruvian flavors to discerning Canadian palates.
The star of the menu will be CEVICHE - a quintessentially Peruvian dish made with fresh medium sized cubes of fish filets marinated with salt, onions, chili peppers and lime and garnished with corn, lettuce and sweet potatoes. The menu, designed by world-renowned guest chefs from Peru will offer a buffet of 20+ dishes from all regions of Peru and a dinner selection of 4 appetizer dishes, 4 main courses and 4 desserts that represent iconic Peruvian dishes. In addition, a ceviche bar will offer guests a diverse selection of different styles and preparations of this classic Peruvian dish. Dishes will be paired with colorful, fresh fruit cocktails made with PISCO, a grape based distilled beverage that holds the title as Peru’s national drink. The art of the classic Pisco Sour made with fresh limes and garnished with amargo de Angostura will be demonstrated by expert mixologists.
RESTOBAR PERU kicks off the weekend of July 13-15 and continues monthly on the last weekend of each month from August to December. The Lounge @ 99 Sudbury, located between Toronto’s trendy Queen and King West neighborhoods is the ideal setting for this fabulous series of “pop up” dining. Returning diners can indulge in the talents of a different celebrity chef each month.
Visitors to Peru and food critics are astonished to discover the gastronomic experience of Peruvian cuisine. Spending a week visiting only the impressive restaurants in Peru can easily be justified thanks to the vastness and exquisiteness of its dishes unanimously approved by the most prestigious chefs and specialists on the subject. The food and cultural influence of three continents (Europe, Africa and Asia) merged with the Inca cuisine, makes Peruvian cuisine a unique and exquisite experience indeed. Key ingredients used in Peruvian cuisine include: Peppers of all colors or “Aji” in Spanish, potatoes, quinoa, corn, fish and citrus fruits.
Pop-Up Restaurants have gained popularity in major cities in the US and Canada including Toronto among foodies as “hot spots” to explore and discover new cuisine. A recent article in the April 2012 issue of Toronto Life magazine brought attention to this new trend.
