This week on Fine Dining Lovers we took a trip to Peru to interview Gaston Acurio and find out what he’s been up to since announcing his retirement from Astrid y Gaston last month.
He spoke to us about some of the latest concepts for fast casual dining that he’s working on in Peru and his plans to open a La Mar style restaurant, similar to his informal restaurant in Lima, London.
The Peruvian chef also gave us some details about his expedition planned for 2015 in which he will travel across Peru with a team of people researching food and rediscovering lost recipes.
