Nobu Restaurant accepting the Friend of Peru award

Over the years, renowned celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa has been recognized for his innovative take on Japanese cuisine which has been influenced by Peruvian ingredients.  After becoming a classically trained sushi chef, Nobu had moved to Peru and opened a sushi restaurant where he spent 3 years integrating this new culture and regional ingredients and thus the signature Nobu style was invented. After his years of promoting and building awareness to Peruvian cuisine, the country of Peru has awarded the Friends of Peru Award to Chef Nobu Matsuhisa for his contributions.  Supporters from the fashion and business industries came together to celebrate at a luncheon hosted by the Minister of Foreign Commerce & Tourism of Peru, Eduardo Ferreyros.  Here are some of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Peruvian influences in his cuisine.

3. We’ve heard about the sushi bar you opened in Peru…we credit you with the creation of Tiradito.  Is this true?  Can you tell us about this?


Tiradito came about when a guest asked for a ceviche without onions.  I incorporated the Sashimi / Usuzukuri plating presentation and also made the dish just before serving to keep the fish’s flavor fresh which could be said to have refined the presentation into its popular form of today.  I don’t know if I can be credited for its creation but perhaps for refining it and spreading the dish to its current global recognition by serving it in my restaurants.
