Chef Alejandro Saravia’s love affair with Thermomix began 10 years ago in Paris. When opening Pastuso in Melbourne, a Thermomix was number one on the kitchen equipment list. Today his trusty Thermomix allows him to create anything from a Peruvian take on pannacotta called Algarrobina to the sauce for Escabachel, an acidic fish marinade.
Pastuso is a modern Peruvian grill, cevicheria and pisco bar located in ACDC Lane. You can follow Chef and his love for local Gippsland produce and Peruvian culture and cuisine on @chefalejandrosaravia.
During Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Pastuso was transformed for 'Carnaval'. A celebration of Peruvian cuisine, inspired by the art and culture of the coast, the Andean highlands and the Amazon. Peru's past was channelled through cuisine, traditional dancers and contemporary art. Festival food adventures off to a cracking start!
