Through these communal meals, they will share with you the cultural heritage, family traditions, seasonal influences, and modern methods that continue to shape their food philosophy, cooking styles, and signature dishes. Join Andres & Melinda Figallo of Nazca Peruvian Eats for an authentic Peruvian Sunday Supper.

About Nazca Peruvian Eats: Andres (“Andy”) Figallo is the youngest of five children and the first one born in the United States after his family emigrated from Peru.  Growing up in Western Pennsylvania, Peruvian food was naturally a staple in the Figallo household and visits back to the homeland would bring back the spices and flavors only found in Peru.  Andy and Melinda met in college and married and settled in Columbus in 2001. After launching several successful businesses, Andy and Melinda decided to turn their entrepreneurial spirits to the food world. Craving the delicious Peruvian food he was raised on and wanting to introduce it to their own children, they looked to Andy’s mother for recipes and tips to capture those authentic flavors. After a lot of trial and error and guidance from Andy’s mother, they were able to perfect several authentic Peruvian dishes. As Peruvian cuisine started to gain popularity in the US, Andy and Melinda would often visit restaurants that offered some of their favorite dishes. Although well-executed they found a lot of the dishes they tried were still missing the tastes and elements that were distinctly Peruvian.  They decided to build a food truck dedicated to the true spirit of Peruvian cuisine, Nazca Peruvian Eats, which hit the streets in April 2019.  30 seats are available for this event. A minimum of 18 registrants are required to hold the event. All ticket purchases must be made prior to 5:00 PM, August 8. No refunds or cancellations after August 5.
