The objective of this meeting was the establishment of an academic dialogue on issues related to cultural practices by ancient European and pre-Hispanic cultures.
Peruvian gastronomical week with the exclusive participation of Chef Gastón Acurio UPCOMING
The Peruvian gastronomical week will take place at the Hospitality School of Lausanne (EHL), where the Swiss public will be able to discover the variety of culinary treasures of Peru which mirror a millenary cultural heritage. While the event will be taking place, we will invite the famous Peruvian Chef Gastón Acurio, who will be in charge of a Master Class, and the elaboration of an original degustation menu in direct collaboration with the exhibition “The Angel of the Andes”. The latter will try to relate the narration of the myth of Rijkrallpa with the creation of different dishes, combining typical Peruvian flavours.
Boutique of souvenirs
At the occasion of the events that we organize through the association RIJKRALLPA, we make available to the attending public, a point of sale of souvenirs produced by the same artisans with whom we collaborate for the exhibition. This will allow the creation of a space for the valorisation of the traditional handicrafts of Peru and its heirs.
