A Good City Guide to Lima with Pía León and Virgilio Martínez

(Topia) With three establishments ranked in the top 100 of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021, Peruvian chefs Pía León and Virgilio Martínez are unquestionably the culinary world’s most talented couple; chefs with vision who relish diverse agricultural experimentation with a long-term view.

While Virgilio changed Lima’s culinary game by focusing exclusively on Peruvian ingredients for his Mater ecosystems menu at Central – the restaurant where Pía soared through the ranks to become head chef that currently ranks fourth in the world – her talents also know no bounds. In 2021, the leader of Kjolle was named the world’s best female chef.

Together, they also helm MIL, a ground-breaking restaurant boasting incredible biodiversity whose altitudinous chacra (farm) is shared with two local Indigenous communities located at 3,600 metres above sea level next to Moray, in the Cusco region.
