Chef Virgilio Martinez's restaurant, Central, has been voted one of the best places to eat in the world by the British magazine, Restaurant. The menu is an exploration of Peru's many altitudes and ecosystems and of foraged native ingredients. "I live in Lima by the sea. Then we have the Andes. Then we have the Amazon. It's not a flat Amazon, it's an Amazon with altitudes that creates different micro-climates, too, lots of them." Martinez recently published a new cookbook named after his restaurant.
