Ignacio Barrios, Chef/Owner of Urban Kitchen, a renowned cooking school in Lima, Peru, earned his chops under Gordon Ramsey and Gaston Acurio at Astrid y Gastón, also in Lima. Ignacio returns to masterfully teach us how to prepare authentic Peruvian cuisine that is flavorful and utilizes ingredients that are accessible to the home cook.  Learn why Eric Asimov of The New York Times described Peruvian cuisine as one of the world’s most innovative.
