National Cebiche’s Day

National Cebiche’s Day

This June 28 will be celebrated in Peru, as every year, the National Cebiche’s Day, tradition that takes place since 2004 as a way of recognizing this typical dish as national cultural heritage. Although outward it might seem a little bit exaggerated, Peruvians know the importance of celebrating the flagship dish of Peruvian gastronomy.

Cebiche: typical dish recognized as national cultural heritage of Peru.

Beginning with the fact that food is of utmost importance for Peru and this can be noticed in the pride we carry the title of “gastronomic capital of the world”, referring to Lima. In adittion, cebiche has a great international recognition.

The objective of creating this day was originally to promote and spread the consumption of Cebiche in Peru and abroad. This is broken down into the consumption of fish and the promotion of work for regional producers.

The basic ingredients with which this famous dish is made are: fish, lemon, onion, pepper and salt. And even when there are varieties of cebiche, the traditional one only needs these five components. Its simplicity, along with an extraordinary taste, have been the main reasons why it has marveled the most demanding culinary specialists of the world.

The date chosen for celebrating this day might seem a bit strange since it takes place in the winter season of the country. This is because many people associate cebiche with summer and the fact that it’s eaten during the day, since it’s quite critic, but it can actually be enjoyed in any season of the year and it’s even perfect for the night, being a very light dish.

Our recommendations for this June 28? The first is definitely the Maras Restaurant in Lima, which bring together atmosphere with the best of Peruvian gastronomy. All done by one of the most renowned chefs of Peru: Rafael Piqueras.

Let yourself be delighted at the Maras Restaurant in Lima.

And taking advantage of the holiday in June 29, you may have the opportunity to leave the capital and arrive to the wonderful city of Paracas. The distance from Lima to Paracas is about three hours by car and there you can find the restaurant Chalana, where from the pier and with sea view, you can enjoy a sustainable experience and dishes with supplies from fishermen and local farmers. An incredible and delicious excuse to get away of routine.

Enjoy the National Cebiche’s Day as it deserves and of course, celebrate it properly.

Enjoy a sustainable experience in the restaurant Chalana in Paracas.
