Virgilio Martinez is much more than a chef, he is an artist and explorer. Central, his Lima restaurant, reigns as the world's best in 2023. Together with his wife Pía León, he reshapes gastronomy. Virgilio is an explorer of Peru's different regions, giving its origin to the revolutionary concept of the "World in Altitudes", based on the elevations of the earth that forever changed the way local gastronomy is seen in today's world.
