LET’S CALL IT BY ITS NAME: TAPAS/PIQUEOS
Why call it TAPAS when you mean antipasto or mezze plate? Since when did “Japanese tapas” exist? …It’s time to start calling things by its name.
In South America we call it PIQUEO.
Piqueo literally means “a bite to eat” but it’s not just something to satisfy your appetite, PIQUEO involves the whole culture of sharing food and experiences over a table.
Peruvian Chef Alejandro Saravia from “A taste of PERú” continues introducing his interpretation of modern Peruvian influenced cuisine, but this time- Piqueo style.
After the success of “A taste of PERú” (April, 2009 in Mosman), “Andean Flavours” (October, 2009 for the Sydney International Food Festival at Sheraton on the Park) and “Winter Sessions” (July, 2010 at The Lincoln), Saravia goes for Piqueos at “South America is ON Thursday” for the Sydney International Food Festival 2010, held at The Lincoln (Potts Point, 36 Bayswater Rd).
Every Thursday during October, Sydney is open to enjoy a selection of delightful South American Piqueos with a strong Peruvian influence. There are eight dishes to share and taste Chef Saravia’s author cuisine. Choritos a la chalaca (Steamed Green mussels topped w/ aji, eshallot & tomato salsa) or Ostras a las vinagreta de rocoto (Fresh shucked oysters dressed w/ spicy Peruvian pepper vinaigrette) are just the beginning of what for sure will be a delightful experience.
With a complimentary Pisco (Peruvian spirit) cocktail served by one of Sydney’s best cocktail bars and also serving Argentinean Wines on the wine list, there’s no excuse to start feeling South America ON every Thursday at The Lincoln.
