Born in 1977 in Lima, Virgilio is the chef and owner of Central Restaurante.
Considered one of the new generation of Peruvian chefs, he applies modern cooking techniques to indigenous Peruvian ingredients. Motivated by an insatiable curiosity and interest in conveying the complexity of his land, Virgilio is passionate about traveling and investigating ingredients that can bring undocumented and yet even more wealth to the local cuisine.
To do so, through a number of areas: ocean, lower Andes, extreme altitude, and high and low jungles. He also has an interdisciplinary team that complements each new "discovery" in a necessary context that seeks to transcend the strictly culinary and penetrate nutritional, biological, anthropological aspects.
