Mistura 2013 – Peru’s premier food fair – Opens

Mistura, Lima’s showcase  culinary event, opened today,  for its sixth run.

The opportunity to taste the spectacular dishes from Peru in a single place will continue over the next 10 days in a new location, along a stretch of the Pacific coast beachfront, on the Costa Verde of Magdalena del Mar.

Mistura 2013 - This year's showcase of Peruvian cuisine is being held along a stretch of the Pacific coast beachfront, on the Costa Verde of Magdalena del Mar.

Since the Spanish Conquest in the 16th century, the Peruvian kitchen has produced one of the world’s original fusion cuisines, formed by a host of outside influences — from Chinese and African, Japanese and Spaniard, North American and European. Conquerors, natives, slaves and immigrants alike contributed to the delectable melting pot. Mistura is an opportunity to sample a cross-section of that deep culinary tradition, from cebiches, and Chinese Peruvian stir-fry, to Aji de Gallina and grilled anticuchos.

Tickets can be purchased at the Teleticket booths in Wong and Metro supermarkets. Admission is 25 soles (US$8.90) for adults and 12 soles (US$4.25) for children.

Organizers are expecting turnout this year to match or surpass last year’s 500,000 visitors.

Taking Lima's public transportation to reach this year's Mistura food festival is advisable. Parking will be scarce and fines for illegal parking hefty.Parking is limited and fines for leaving for cars left in illegal zones are stiff. So the best advice is to go in public transportation.

Lima’s Metropolitano bus system will be running a continuous route a block down from the Central Station, outside the Museo del Arte Italiano, making stops at eight bus stops along Avenida Brasil to the Magdalena district and the Mistura fair grounds. The roundtrip fare is only two soles, or less than US$1.

Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm / Friday through Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 pm
