Please consider dining with us Sunday, August 5th, at 7PM in Downtown Los Angeles. We’ll begin with a to be decided small bite and Åhus Akvavit cocktails. Next is Ceviche Peruano, raw wild and local fish in an aji amarillo leche de tigre with sweet potato, salsa criolla, and a canchita garnish. A salad of fried eggplant, green beans, botija olive yogurt, and the Andean mint, huacatay, follows. We’ve chosen carapulcra for our main course. As explained by chef and culinary historian Nico Vera, “Carapulcra is a potato and pork stew that was first prepared by the Incas over 500 years ago. What gives this dish its unique flavor and consistency is its main ingredient, papa seca, or dehydrated potatoes. Slow cooked with hot peppers, peanuts, cloves, cinnamon, anise, pork, and red wine, the result is a stew that is hearty, spicy, and complex—a true mix of Inca, European, and African flavors.” Ours will be topped with roasted Peads & Barnetts Berkshire pork belly. And for dessert: elderflower lemon poundcake with homemade vanilla ice cream and fruit.
Tickets are 90 dollars with wine pairings and 70 dollars without. They can be found here. Please note that all sales are final.
As always, the pleasure will be ours.
