Virgilio Martinez is inviting everyone to Cuzco

Virgilio Martinez and his Central restaurant in Lima, Peru claimed the top spot of Latin America's 50 Best for an amazing third year in a row in 2016. Also last year, Central got number 4 on the World's 50 Best list.

But Virgilio Martinez wanted to use the spotlight not for him and his restaurant but to showcase a region full of amazing products. With the help of Mater Iniciativa they put together an annual event that starts off this year.

Momento Andes will take place from the 16th-19th of February in Peru's Sacred Valley. 

Names like Isaac McHale, Gaston Acurio or Leonor Espinosa will participate and talk and they will be joined by other industry leaders in journalism and biology.

Watch the festival trailer below.
