Washington D.C. Area Peruvian Gastronomic Festival

This is a late-breaking post about the first annual Peruvian Gastronomic Festival being held in the Washington D.C. area (it's actually taking place at a restaurant in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland).


"Chefs Maria Ines Pinto and Pedro Mendoza, who head a culinary school in Lima, join executive chef Javier Angeles Beron at Ceviche for a weeklong Peruvian Gastronomic Festival, a celebration of cooking and ingredients from the Andes and Amazon. At the buffet lunches ($25) and dinners ($50), you can graze over traditional preparations of lomo saltado and sundried potato stew. They get bonus points for doling out free samples of Pisco.

When: Lunch, noon to 3 PM; Dinner, 6 to 9 PM.
Where: Ceviche, 921-J Ellsworth Rd., Silver Spring; 301-608-0081."

Here is a link to the Ceviche website.

This link to a news item on local station WUSA, has a short video clip of the chefs preparing ceviche and lomo saltado.

Chef Javier Angeles Beron says the event will last until Sunday, January 28, and on Friday and Saturday, there will be live music. This event is being organized in collaboration with the Peruvian Embassy.
