Cooking with Altitude

Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez unveils the exciting, innovative tasting menu of his acclaimed Central restaurant in his new Phaidon cookbook, which will impress gastronomes and satiate the appetites of armchair travellers alike.

Taking the #1 position in Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants for two consecutive years, Martinez's signature restaurant Central is testament to his culinary exploration of his homeland and his passion for local indigenous ingredients, both eloquently captured in his new book.

Supported by 150 vivid photographs from travel photographer Nicholas Gill, the beautifully designed book gives incredible insight into the huge diversity of Martínez’s homeland, plus the exquisitely crafted dishes served in the restaurant.
