On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer's guest is Virgilio Martinez, chef and owner of Central in Lima, Peru, and author of a new book, The Latin American Cookbook (Phaidon, 10/27/21). After cooking in prestigious restaurants around the world, Virgilio returned to Peru in 2009 and opened Central. Since 2013, Central has appeared on the World’s 50 Best list and has been named the #1 restaurant in Latin America multiple times. Virgilio co-founded Mater Iniciativa, which documents Latin America’s indigenous foods. In 2018, he opened the acclaimed Mil in the Andes above the terraces of Moray. He is featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table and is the author of Central, his chef monograph published by Phaidon in 2016. Today's show also includes Shari's PR tip to go to the source; Speed Round; Industry News Discussion on Denmark's Geranium refocusing on plant-based and pescatarian dishes; and Solo Dining experience at Chef Daniel Humm's Eleven Madison Park in NYC, which recently changed to an all plant-based menu.
