Restaurant Torre at Fondazione Prada presents the 2019 fourth event of “CARE’s Chef Under 30”, realised in collaboration with three-times Michelin starred chef Norbert Niederkofler and Paolo Ferretti, both founders of “CARE’s – The Ethical Chef Days”. The project aims at promoting new ideas in the kitchen and a gastronomic culture based on local products, environmental sustainability, respectful use of resources, waste awareness and a fair value for money.


From March to November 2019, five chefs under 30 are invited, for two weeks each, to present a five-course menu inspired by the gastronomic identity of their own country. After Peruvian chef Aldo Yaranga, Irish Killian Crowley and South African Vusumuzi Ndlovu, the Peruvian Francesca Ferreyros will be the guest chef at restaurant Torre from 20 September to 5 October 2019.
Francesca Ferreyros (1989) started her culinary education in the kitchen of chef Iván Kisic in Lima (Peru) in 2009, and continued in the United States where she collaborated with chef Niven Patel. In 2015 she moved to Europe and worked at the restaurant El Celler de Can Roca in Girona (Spain), Ferreyros spent the following year in Asia joining the team of the Indian chef Gaggan Anand in Bangkok (Thailand). Interested in Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) and Chifa (Chinese-Peruvian) cuisines, Ferreyros returned to Peru in 2018 as chef at the IK restaurant in Lima, where she created her own fusion cuisine combining ingredients, techniques and traditions from Southeast Asia and Peru. The young chef is currently working with the indigenous peoples of the Amazon to extend her knowledge about products and ancient techniques of her country’s cuisine. Her upcoming projects include the opening of a new restaurant where she can present her culinary research that connects Asia and Peru traditions.
