Perú Mucho Gusto: A New Book on Peruvian Cuisine

The Peruvian government continues its support of Peruvian cuisine.

Prom Perú, the government tourism board, announced the publication of a new book, Perú Mucho Gusto, profiling 70 top Peruvian chefs, including, among others, Teresa Izquierdo, owner of the renowned cocina criolla restaurant Rincón Que No Conoces, and Eladio Espinoza, a master in the preparation of shrimp at his restaurant, San Isidro.


The book also includes recipes featuring the gastronomic diversity of Peruvian cuisine. During the book's launch party, at Plaza Bolivar in the Lima district of Pueblo Libre, many of the featured chefs were present.

I just returned from a trip to Peru, where I fell in love with the food. I saw this book for sale in Lima, but rather than lugging it around (it's very large) I figured I would buy it here. Hmm . . . should have lugged it around. If anyone finds out where to get it in the U.S. please advise.
