Global Cuisine: Peru, From Scratch
Join us at the Fowler for a celebration of Peruvian cuisine, co-presented with PROMPERÚ, the Commission for the Promotion of Peruvian Exports and Tourism. We’ll screen an episode of the hit FYI food travel series From Scratch, hosted by David Moscow, which explores classic Peruvian cuisine with executive chef Marilu Madueno of La Huaca Pucllana, one of the best restaurants in Lima. After learning how Peruvian ingredients have shaped food around the world, Moscow journeys across the country to source these foundational ingredients and try his hand at Peruvian cooking. A post-screening conversation with Conrado Falco, Director of PROMPERÚ Los Angeles, will follow. Afterward, join us for a reception and enjoy Peruvian food and drink.
