Peru aims to strengthen its presence in international trade with the global launch of the brand 'SuperFoods del Peru', an initiative that reflects the nutritional benefits and quality of the Peruvian agricultural products. As you might already know, I am peruvian and I am VERY proud of peruvian food.
During the Fruit Logistica in Germany, the Peruvian Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, said that superfoods to be promoted under the brand will be quinoa, maca, purple corn, aguaymanto, lucuma, Camu camu, cacao, sacha inchi, grapes, blueberries, mandarin, mango, avocado, asparagus and even fish oil.
Also, cañihua, yacon, chestnuts, algarrobo, giant corn from Cusco, chirimoya, guanabana, broccoli and pomegranate will also be considered.
And while my school Friend and Soccer player, Claudio Pizarro, was made SuperFoods Peru Ambassador, I got invited to the PromPeru "SuperFoods Peru" Event at Chicha Berlin.
My mega foodsquad babes Maria, Sophia and Kai were of course there and we were served a Pisco Punch.. Made with pisco, champagne, pineapple juice between others... and what a punch was it! Got us all happy happy before PromPeru's Presentation (Here the video)
We had a big menu made exclusively with Peruvian SuperFoods and they were delicious. Not to mention my homesickness went away in a split of a second. We had a beautiful evening with laughter, amazing food and I was so proud to be able to see my friends eating peruvian food. Not for nothing we won 5 consecutive times the best culinary destination in the world.
