peru embassy kuwait 300x173 Peruvian food fest set to tickle Kuwait’s taste buds


KUWAIT: The gourmet lovers in Kuwait are in for a pleasant surprise! The exquisite culinary diversity of Peru will be served hot during the first-ever Peruvian food festival in Kuwait that will be held at the Restaurant La Brasserie in JW Marriott Kuwait from March 10 to 15. The festival, organized by JW Marriott Hotel in collaboration with the Embassy of Peru in Kuwait and the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL), Kuwait, will also showcase the rich cultural heritage of the South American country alongside the event. Giving an overview of the food festival yesterday, George Aoun, Cluster General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel, Kuwait and Gustavo Bravo, Charge d’Affaires ad interim of the Embassy of Peru in Kuwait, said, “It will not only be a food festival, but also a cultural event.
A group of Peruvian professional dancers will be brought to Kuwait exclusively for the event to perform ‘Marinera’, the elegant and complex Peruvian national dance during the event,” they said. Other varieties of dances will also be performed in addition to the ‘Marinera’ during the event. Touted as a ‘gastronomic superpower’ by the Financial Times, Peruvian cuisine continues to maintain its position at the top of the culinary agenda. Peru has won the top honor as ‘World’s Leading Culinary Destination’ at the 19th World Travel Awards held in New Delhi in December 2012. Renowned for its ingredients and traditional dishes, the Peruvian cuisine bagged the award after beating other nominees, including China, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Thailand and the US. “This gives us the best introduction to Kuwait,” said Gustavo Bravo, commenting on the recognition of Peru as world’s leading culinary destination in 2012. “For the first time in this country, both Kuwaitis and residents will have an opportunity to taste the diversity of Peruvian food. We will have different menus every day.
The visitors will have the chance to taste a mix of ingredients from a vast variety of Peruvian food. We will have ingredients ranging from the coasts of the Pacific ocean, the mountains and highlands of the Andes to the Amazon plateau. Every geographical region of the country will be represented at the festival,” Bravo pointed out. Peru continues to stand out internationally as an epicurean destination with its food festivals attracting record number of visitors and Peruvian chefs showcasing their local cuisine around the world. “We have been recognized not only by travel agencies, but also by gastronomy specialists from across the world,” Bravo added.
The destination is increasingly recognized for its culinary tours, food safaris, world class cooking schools, and foodie fiestas including the Mistura Food Festival, which attracted more than 500,000 people to Lima, the Peruvian capital, in September 2012. “One of Peru’s most famous culinary experts Javier Morante along with chef Joseph D’Costa have been coordinating efforts in the last couple of months to put up the menus and arrange the ingredients to make the food festival a remarkable event,” said George Aoun. Recently, the leading British magazine ‘Stylist’ has named Lima one of ‘the 10 locations where the culinary-minded should be heading this year.’ Also, according to Stylist’s “10 holidays for the food obsessed” list, Peru is Latin America’s most gourmet cuisine. “This will be the best exposure of Peruvian culture and gastronomy, and of course there will be a positive impact on tourist numbers,” said Bravo giving an optimistic outlook of the food festival. “We opened the Embassy of Peru in Kuwait in November 2011 and commenced issuing visas from the Consular Section in June 2012. Ever since, we have seen a rise in the number of visitors to Peru from Kuwait. Now, the projection of the embassy is that after this festival, thousands of people from Kuwait will be visiting Peru,” Bravo added

Al Mubarakiya Souq of Kuwait City

Ayer estuvimos cenando en el Souq y como por la mañana nos dimos una vueltilla por la zona pués ahora lo miro con mejores ojos. Fuimos a cenar con Lola y Joaquín y familia ( en las fotos de mi segunda visita a la Gran Mezquita tenéis imagenes de ellos) Y pude sacar unas fotos, no muchas ya que no les gusta y menos si van vestidos de árabes. Pero entre alguna que robé disimuladamente y otras que me dieron permiso puedo mostraros un poquito mas del SOUQ de KUWAIT CITY.


Yesterday we went to taken dinner to the souq in Kuwait City with our neighbours. I couldnt take much good photographs because they dont like it much. So my appologise for the bad quality in someones. I can show you now a little bit more of the KUWAIT CITY SOUQ.
