This time around the new tasting menu at Astrid&Gaston "is the cuisine, turned into a new experience, in which art, music, literature, design and fashion come together to intervene space and time, so every bite can stir the senses, reflection, memory, emotion. "

To celebrate the Italian migration and its integration to Peru, Gaston Acurio brings together artists and designers from different fields to develop "EL VIAJE: a journey". It is the story of tens of thousands of men and women, sons and daughters of Liguria, who for various reasons choose to emigrate to Peru and since then with a fraternal embrace to the cultural integration, it has been gradually giving life to a new world to the Italian memory and Peruvian heart, all transmitted from the fine dining experience.

The menu is divided into five acts. Our work in this project was the artistic and creative direction.
