    Virgilio Martínez is the chef/owner of Central restaurant in Lima, Peru—his gorgeous cookbook, Central, describes his unique approach to food and cooking, which hinges completely on the one-of-a-kind ingredients he finds within the ecosystems that exist at varying altitudes and locations across Peru. He creates 11-course and 16-course tasting menus that reflect the country’s astonishingly diverse (Peru’s highest point is 22,205 feet and it’s lowest point is -112 feet) flora and fauna.
