A Talk With Virgilio Martinez

This week we kicked things off at Fine Dining Lovers with an exclusive interview with acclaimed Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez.

Fresh off his win as number one on the Latin America's 50 Best Restauransts list, Martinez announced he would be relocating his award-winning restaurant Central from its current location in Lima to the countryside near the city Cusco.

“We’ve had all this legacy of what we have, great food, flavour, taste, but there’s a lot more to rediscover and that’s our focus now.” Read all about his exciting plans here.

Eggs By The Numbers

From Martinez we moved on to discover the secret life of eggs. We were floored to discover some interesting facts about this breakfast and baking staple.

For instance, did you know the average Mexican eats 321 eggs per year?! Or that China produces over 450 billion eggs annually? It's incredible!

New Mexican Chiles Rellenos

We ended the week with a mad craving for Mexican food. That's because writer Noah Charney took us on a journey to discover the authentic recipe for chiles rellenos (stuffed peppers dipped in a batter and fried).

Travel with us as we go from New Mexico to the city of Puebla, Mexico to uncover the secrets to the best chiles rellenos ever.
