Lovers of Latin American gastronomy are enjoying a new online magazine specializing in food and travel, in which restaurants, recipes and hotels are reviewed and other aspects of the Latino culture and tourist opportunities in Latin America and the Caribbean are discussed.
Peruvian graphic designer Chris Yong-Garcia is the editor-in-chief of Latin Lover, presented Tuesday in New York, with which he intends to take readers “on a trip through Latino cooking.”
The English-language quarterly includes interviews with prominent restauranteurs and chefs and a wide variety of recipes that gather together the “rich cultural heritage” behind Latino dishes.
The new publication also includes travel advice regarding the places where the gastronomic delights originate.
Yong-Garcia said in a press communique that his aim is “to build a community around Latin culture that bridges Latino and non-Latino populations and facilitates tourism both at home - in the restaurants and cultural institutions of New York City and beyond - and abroad around the world.”
The first issue of the new online magazine is devoted to Peruvian gastronomy and one of its most outstanding chefs - Emmanuel Piqueras, the son of Lima Mayor Susana Villaran - and someone who has been acknowledged as one of the best in the world by different specialized magazines such as Food and Wine.
Space is also devoted in the first issue to Mexican cooking, one of the best-known in the United States, as well as an interview with Mexican chef Domingo Garza.
