Mistura, the largest food festival in South America, will be held for the eight year in Lima, Peru, this September.
Online PR News – 01-April-2015 – Bonita Springs, Florida – The festival dates recently announced by the Peruvian Gastronomy Association (Apega) for 2015 are September 4 - 13. About a half million people are expected to attend including chefs and foodies from all around the world with over 25,000 international tourists, mostly from the United States, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil. For 2015, the 10-day festival has returned to a former location at the Parque de la Exposición (Exposition Park) in historic downtown Lima. Complete with a Byzantine Pavilion, the sprawling park has a great location next to the palatial Museum of Art of Lima.
To help travelers experience Mistura, the Florida-based tour company, Explorations is again offering a special tour to Peru that includes a day at Mistura and will be escorted by a local foodie guide.
During Explorations' special cuisine and cultural tour, participants will explore Lima, including touring of a local market and a cooking class with professional Lima chef. In addition to incredible sights in Lima, participants may also join a post-tour trip extension to Cuzco and Much Picchu. Explorations' tour will have a strong focus on archaeology, history, and a Peru's gastronomy - from farm to fork - with visits to local markets, cooking demonstrations, and special meals. Like the Spanish word "mistura", which means mixture, Exploration's small group tour will mix cultures, cuisines, and geography. Explorations labels the trip, "A Cultural and Culinary Exploration". More information about the tour can be found online at www.adventuresofdiscovery.com.
Explorations' previous clients to Mistura took full (no pun intended) advantage of the great diversity of food and drink, in addition shopping among the amazing variety of national food products. Besides the fun to be had, the participants were impressed with the organization and management of the event. Even without Spanish language skills, the expansive festival grounds were easy to navigate and buying products was easy. They appreciated that the grounds were kept so clean and all the polite people to help with directions or interpretations.
