A new nightly pop-up has made its way to Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay with authentic Peruvian cuisine! Inti (the Incan word for Sun) brings Peru’s multicultural flavour as part of the first authentic Peruvian dining experience in Bahrain.
One of the former head chefs of the Peruvian Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, Chef Yovani Guevera, with a prestigious Le Cordon Bleu diploma, is a 12-year veteran of some of the world’s finest Peruvian restaurants. Having spent the last five years in the Middle East, she considers the region home, but her culinary heart remains in her home country.
“Peru is a paradise of biodiversity,” she said. “It has one of the world’s largest pantries and showcases five continents in one country.” Hailing from Cajamarca in the north, she loves preparing dishes from all of Peru’s coastal, mountain and jungle regions. “In Peru, our food is our culture, our national pride, and our passion,” she continued. “Ceviche, quinoa, potatoes, and purple corn are just some of the superfoods that originated there; it’s my mission to share the rest with the world in my own way.”
Her fresh, delicate ceviche – the flagship of Peruvian cuisine, perfected over 2000 years – vies with its unmarinated Japanese-Peruvian alternative, tiradito, which, unlike ceviche, is sauced immediately before service. Then there are succulent anticucho: Incan empire meat skewers that originated in the Andes, marinated in vinegar, spices, and Peruvian peppers. And then the sweet final chapter of clásico: a dreamy, colourful cream and purple dessert of mazamorra and rice pudding that celebrates the country’s two biggest football teams as well as two of its greatest superfoods.
In an atmospherically lit area beneath swaying palm trees on Bahrain’s one-of-a-kind resort island, Inti by Four Seasons will serve an a la carte menu to just six tables a night with a five-course degustation menu also available.
Whether visiting for a special birthday or anniversary or simply to make memories with loved ones, Inti adds even further sensory appeal to the iconic pearl that is Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay.
Inti at Four Seasons is open from Wednesday to Saturday at Azure Pool, 7:00 pm to 12:00 midnight, from October 19, 2022, with modern lounge music.
