Join ACDC Lane's Pastuso as they celebrate Peruvian Independence Day with a special lunch from Pastuso chef Alejandro Saravia and chef Jesse Gerner from Spanish tapas restaurant Bomba. The six-course lunch will explore the important influences that Spain has on South American cuisine.

Before you dive into your six-course meal, you'll get to learn more about the Spanish-Peruvian links with a Q&A from both Gerner and Saravia, moderated by Hilary McNevin from the Pep Alliance.

The discussion will be brought to life by a banquet prepared by Pastuso's chefs. Start off with cured tuna loin served with a small shot of Pisco; Storm Bay clams with smoked dashi and alpaca pancetta; and ox tail croquettes with beetroot and balsamic glaze.
Mains include slow-cooked lamb shoulder and a squid ink paella cooked on charcoal, with sides of Andean grains and chickpeas with a spinach and saffron broth. End the feast on a sweet note with a sour cherry compote with meringue and lemon shards, and frozen goat cheese curd with a cinnamon sponge.

The one-off lunch takes place on Sunday July 30, from 1-4pm at Pastuso. Enjoy six courses for $85, or $145 with paired drinks. Book online or call Pastuso on 03 9662 4556.
