Peru managed to get two placements (3 total in the top 100) in this year’s edition of San Pellegrino’s Top 50 Restaurants in the World, and it seems that isn’t all that’s expanding.  Gastón Acurio (Astrid y Gastón) and Virgilio Martínez (Central) will be partnering to open a new project in London.  Their hope is to give the larger world a chance to try Peruvian food and for Peruvian cooks to showcase their talents abroad.  [via Big Hospitality]

In a press release posted on San Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants website, Peru will play host to the first edition of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants.  The event will be held on September 4th, 2013 in Lima, Peru.  Cusqueña is the event’s main sponsor.  With the fabric of the world’s restaurants changing rapidly and the success of San Pellegrino’s Top 50 of Asia, it’s only logical that the next list would be in a burgeoning market.  The event promises to be exciting.  Stay tuned for updates.

Boragó, Santiago’s answer to the latest trend in foraging, hyper-localism and avant-garde gastronomy, will be represented in the Gelinaz! summit in Belgium this June.  The event will bring together the hottest chefs in modern gastronomy, including chefs such as David Chang, Rene Redzepi, Luis Andoni Aduriz, and Santiago’s own Rodolfo Guzman of Boragó.  The event’s website can be found here, and offers an insight into how things will play out.  While the event is being held to honor Belgian culinary pioneer Philippe Edouard Cauderlier, it promises to be anything but a 19-th century celebration of food.  More information to come.
