The Art of Peruvian Cuisine Volume I
First published in 2000 and with more than 85,000 copies sold, this exceptional book contains more than a hundred recipes of more than 20 prestigious Peruvian chefs. Still experiencing great sales success in Peru and abroad, this book is helping to spread the word about Peru's the extraordinary cuisine around the world. Only a few years ago, was little known beyond our borders. In Marisa Guiulfo's* own words, "The Art of Peruvian Cuisine" is the only book that shows Peruvian food as a visual work of art. Thanks to this, a path has been opened to the internationalization of our cuisine as an icon and a cultural patrimony, a phenomenon which Peru is contemplating with great pleasure.
