With just a night in Lima before heading into the Amazon rainforest, I had one singular objective. To. Eat. My. Face. Off. I knew the upcoming retreat included fasting and vegetarianism and probably wouldn’t be much of a culinary indulgence, so with less than 24 hours to gobble up Lima, I went big and took a friend’s recommendation, booking a table for the tasting menu at Astrid Y Gastón.
Food is art. Like great theater, or a sculpture that brings tears to my eyes, or dancing, food stirs my soul and makes me feel alive. Pull up a chair and indulge with me!
