CACAO VANCOUVER | MEMORIES OF PERU TASTING MENU

CACAO VANCOUVER LATIN CUISINE Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

If you love Peruvian cuisines than you would love what Cacao Progressive Latin offers. We were super excited for Chef Jefferson Alvarez’s trip to Peru because we knew he would come back with some goodies. Between March 2 to 7, Cacao will host an amazing dining event: Memories of Peru.

The tasting menu welcomes you with a true Peruvian style Pisco Sour. Mixologist Sergio Grandolfo uses an Angostura from Peru that has a more floral nose and heightened bitter after taste. Traditional angostura bitters are more syrupy with a faint scent.

Appetizer finger snacks include:

  • cachapa & cheese
  • chicharron and El XO (Latin version of XO sauce made with Argentina ants and scallops)
  • anchovy churro (this wildly reminds me of these snacks from Japan)
