Chef Virgilio Martínez's London-based restaurant 'Central' is inspired by Peruvian cuisine which has lead the chef to create a custom cookbook. The dishes in the book and at the restaurant cleverly build from the ground upwards.
The cookbook is essentially the chef's personal take on accessible Peruvian dishes that can easily be prepared at home. This means that the dishes incorporate different aspects of the culinary industry that do not completely reflect Peruvian cuisine.
The ultimate goal for this cookbook is to introduce Peruvian culture into mass households by displaying easily replicated dishes. 'Lima the Cookbook: Peruvian Home Cooking' aims to provide consumers with an accessible cultural experience of Peru without leaving their home or country.
