Mistura 2015 – Gastronomy Fair Peru, Isn’t Just for Foodies

Mistura 2015, Peru’s world renowned gastronomy fair is now in full swing, featuring exhibitions of artisan works,  educational sessions, and of course wonderful Peruvian fruits, vegetables, and every kind of cuisine imaginable. If that’s not enough, there are traditional dance groups, musical events, and even food trucks!

This event is the eighth year, and is being presented oceanside in the Costa del Sol park below Magdalena del Mar. It’s the second largest foodie fair in the world, and attendees come from all over the globe to sample award winning plates, and the best of Peru.

We stopped in to check it out:

A Little of Everything

From every kind of regional dish to coffee & chocolates, whatever your in the mood for is available. When you’re finished eating, you can sample craft beers in “Beer World,” or head over to the Pisco Salon and sample the best of Peruvian Pisco, the traditional drink.

Fine crafted goods ranging from traditional textiles and fine jewelry to hand carved wooden items are all on display for the discerning shopper.

Nights become a party, as music fills the air, and the workday crowds begin to arrive, and families head home. A good time for all…
