Chef Alejandro Saravia is widely credited with introducing Peruvian cuisine to Australia’s food culture. In addition to running his own critically acclaimed restaurant, Pastuso, Peruvian-born Alejandro is a consultant chef, sought-after media spokesperson, and all-round advocate for Latin American cuisine and culture.
Alejandro brings his South American heritage to all aspects of his cooking. Having grown up with the strong flavours and variety of Peruvian cuisine, Alejandro finds inspiration in the fond memories of his grandmother’s cooking to convey the essence of Peru to light through food.
This passion for authentic food made with love is combined with Alejandro’s wealth of experience gained through cooking in world-class kitchens across continents. Some of the highlights are Sails at Lavender Bay in Sydney and working under Heston Blumenthal at The Fat Duck (London).
