Nikkei is the term used for all Japanese emigrants and their descendants. In Peru, the Nikkei community is a community with a lot of history and a strong cultural influence.
In recent years we have seen Nikkei cuisine become a trend in Peruvian cuisine around the world. This combination of Peruvian and Japanese flavors is irresistible to any palate.
Tiraditos, makis acevichados, gunkan and ceviches nikkei, are all delicious dishes that exist thanks to this fusion of cultures.
This course is presented by 3 talented chefs; each one will teach us to apply Japanese techniques to Peruvian ingredients, and create dishes that will surprise everyone.
