This dish is prepared by Chef Anibal Torres Díaz of the Signature Peruvian’ INCA Restaurant located at the rooftop of The Social House Nairobi.



Chef Torres hails from Lima, the capital of Peru, but his family is from the north Andean province of Cajamarca, the region which inspired and shaped his culinary passion and techniques.

Having trained at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu Institute in Lima he initially worked under a number of notable Peruvian chefs, not least Rafael Piqieras, a renowned pioneer of molecular and fusion cuisine.

His roots have led him to a particular fascination with northern Peruvian cuisine: rich fish stews, marinated seafood, grilled meats and vegetables steamed with herbs and spices, but he has also dived into the rich and diverse worlds of both Nikkei and Novoandina cuisine.

Chef Torres’ culinary diversity is matched only by his globe-trotting nature: he has shaped and shared his Peruvian-inspired cuisine with diners in Colombia, México, Nicaragua, Jamaica and The Maldives.

And now he’s here in Kenya to bring his passion and the varied flavours of his homeland to guests at INCA, The Peruvian restaurant-bar on the roof of The Social House.
