Sydney will pay homage to the tastes, sounds and sights of Peru during October with the launch of Intrepid Travel’s Real Food Adventure Peru and its ‘Peru on the Road’ food truck, which will be stationed at Wynyard Park on Monday 14 and Tuesday 15 October, from 11.30am until 8.00pm, as part of Good Food Month.
Peruvian chef and former executive chef of Sydney’s Morena restaurant, Alejandro Saravia, will take to the wheel of the ‘Peru on the Road’ food truck for two days, bringing the celebrated tastes and techniques of Peruvian cuisine to the mouths of Sydneysiders. 

Open from lunch through to dinner ‘Peru on the Road’ will serve a range of traditional Peruvian dishes including:Peru on the road 1

Anticuchos de Alpaca – grass fed Millpaca Alpaca skewers marinated in a traditional antichurro sauce (mix of Andean roasted peppers, vinegar and garlic) served with chimichurri (fresh aromatic herbs macerated in oils and apple vinegar);

Pork Chicharrón – twice cooked crispy suckling pork belly served in a bun with caramelised sweet potato & orange puree, pickled daikon and malagueta chillies (spicy Andean chilli);

Quinoa Salad – a vegetarian option of a selection of organic seasonable vegetables served with a blend of quinoa (Andean grain);

Arroz con Leche – creamy rice pudding served with poached green apples, pineapple and quinoa caramel.

Diners will also be treated to a mobile art exhibition and the sounds of jarana – a Peruvian style street party.

Saravia will continue to bring the gastronomic delights of Peru to Sydney with ‘Peru on the Road’ to visit other parts of Sydney next year – the full schedule will be available in early 2014.

Those hungry for even more can experience Intrepid’s Real Food Adventure Peru, an 11-day trip co-developed with Saravia and launching in April 2014 that will offer food fanatics authentic, grassroots food experiences throughout Peru. for more details.

The rising popularity of Peruvian cuisine worldwide was also recognised last month, with renowned Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez’s London restaurant, Lima, being awarded a coveted Michelin Star.

Martinez opened the London restaurant in 2012 following the great success of his flagship, Lima-based, Central Restaurante, and the same year, also opened Senzo in Cuzco in conjunction with a luxury five star hotel.

Peru boasts some of the world’s most acclaimed and award-winning restaurants, and is home to two restaurants featuring in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2013 list. Its capital Lima is known as the gastronomic capital of South America due to the variety and excellence of cuisine and epicurean talent on offer in the vibrant capital.
