The Palais des Nations (Palace of Nations) —home to the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG)— currently hosts a Peruvian Gastronomic Week, the Andean country's Foreign Affairs Ministry informed.
Running thru June 23, the culinary activity takes place on the occasion of the first Sustainable Gastronomy Day
(June 18), a Peruvian initiative adopted by the United Nations General Assembly last December.
For a week, United Nations officials and international delegates attending various events at UNOG headquarters get the chance to taste some of the Inca nation's internationally-renowned cuisine
Peruvian specialties are available as a special gourmet menu at the Restaurant des Delegues, as well as a daily menu at the main cafeteria.
Traditional snacks and beverages are also offered in all other cafeterias and bars at the Palace.
In this context, Monday's lunchtime menu included a tasting of Pisco Sour
, the Andean nation's flagship cocktail.
Peruvian Gastronomic Week is organized by Peru's Permanent Mission to International Organizations and Peruvian food restaurant Pachacamac.
