The Italian Cultural Institute (IIC) in Lima will have its own stand at the 21st International Book Fair, organised by the Peruvian Chamber of Books. It will present "La Flor de la Canela" (The Cinnamon Flower), the first Peruvian recipe book published in Italy, written by Gloria Carpinelli D'Onofrio following her research work and travels in the Latin American country. Two noted professionals of the culinary world collaborated in its production: Chef Adolfo Perret and Johnny Schuler, an expert on pisco, Peru's traditional spirit. The title is a tribute to songwriter Chabuca Granda and her waltz "La Flor de la Canela". Her daughter, Teresa Fuller, will attend the presentation on July 28, along with the Peruvian representatives in Italy and Italian officials in Peru. The book is written in Italian and reveals the roots of Peru's fusion cuisine, which draws upon various cultures: it chronicles pre-Hispanic cultures and illustrates the contributions of Italian, Spanish, African, French, and Asian cuisine. Gloria Carpinelli D'Onofrio is an Italian-Peruvian author living in Italy. She graduated in Modern Languages and Literature at the University of Turin with a thesis on indigenism in Peruvian literature.
