In this anniversary edition Peru will be the invited country. Producers from this country will bring their asparagus and avocados of the greatest quality. Gastón Acurio, the chef who revolutionized the Peruvian cuisine, will be present at the Fair, as well as José del Castillo, who runs the restaurant Isolina (number 12 at the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants ranking); Coco Tomita, founder of Shizen Barra Nikkei; and Martha Palacios.
