Lambayeque will soon emerged as northern Peru’s leading gastronomic destination. Lambayeque Foreign Trade and Tourism Regional Management (Gercetur) is making efforts in that direction.
Gercetur Chair Rosario Julca Encomendero highlighted the region’s major gastronomic potential, which adds to existing cultural attractions and natural gems like Pomac Forest Historical Sanctuary and Chaparri conservation area, among others.
In this respect, Julca said the aim is to strengthen, promote and foster private initiatives such as the upcoming Ceviche, Typical Dishes and Seafood Festival.
The event will be held on March 17-19 at Las Rocas II beach’s El Bambu recreation center, located in Pimentel beach resort area.
The festival expects to delight some 6,000 visitors with seafood treats like ceviche, as well as traditional dishes: arroz con pato (Peruvian-styled rice with duck), chancho al palo (Peruvian-styled roasted pork), among others. Ceviche dishes will cost, on average, S/15 (about US$4.56).
The food fair will also feature presentations of artists dancing to the rhythm of Tondero, Marinera, as well as a Peruvian paso horse show.
