In 1974, Cesar Izquierdo left Peru to come to the United States to make a better life for his family and himself. While Cesar may have left Peru, Peru never left him, to everyone he would meet he would describe the beauty, sights, smells and foods of Peru. Cesar and his family made many trips to Peru and are still going today, gathering menus, sampling food, studying spices and cooking techniques, but mainly exploring and taking a good vacation. And finally on July 29, 1998, Cesar realized his dream of bringing Peruvian food to Chicago and opened “Taste of Peru”. And now Cesar can enjoy the colors, smells, foods and music of Peru just 2 blocks away from his house. With live music during the week, it’s not uncommon to see him dancing with the costumers to the lively Peruvian music.
