Mistura 2010, Lima, Peru’s 3rd annual food festival (September 7-12), is where the most popular food from rustic cafes and even street stalls are served alongside food from the top restaurants. This is the best place to sample the diversity of Peruvian food at every level and where new street food and culinary trends are discovered and awards are given for the best dishes. El Comercio Peru reported last week that more than 14,000 tickets to the event have already been sold. I’ll be there everyday of the event, tasting and shooting everything from juanes to algarobbinas. There’s much more to come on Tuesday, but here is the map of the event grounds to hold you over. If you’re in Lima, this is something you do not want to miss.
