International Gastronomic Fair expects to receive 200,000 people this year in Lima

The Second International Gastronomic Fair of Lima named “Mistura”, to be held from September 24 to 27, expects to receive about 200,000 attendees during the four-day event, a 400 percent increase in visitors compared to the figures recorded in 2008, reported today the Peruvian Gastronomy Association (Apega).
According to Apega’s president, Gaston Acurio, the event will move from a 12,000 square meters area (San Martin Headquartes, located in the district of Miraflores) to a 100,000 square meters park space (Parque de la Exposicion), which will ensure a further development of the fair and attract more visitors.
"Last year, about 40,000 people attended the event, but at least 40,000 people stayed outside because there was no capacity. This year, a large attendance is expected and we hope to reach a record of 200,000 attendees, including 5,000 visitors from other countries, "he said.
This second edition will bring together the most important representatives of the Peruvian cuisine as well as renowned international chefs, which include six world-class chefs from Spain, France, Italy and United States, who have high expectations of this visit.
"Among the chefs confirmed to participate in the event are: Andoni Luis Aduriz (Spain) considered the fourth best chef in the world, as well as Joan Roca and the Italian Massimo Obtura," he said.
