The World’s First FSC-Certified Restaurant Opens in Peru

ÁmaZ is a leading restaurant in Lima, Peru. Opened by world-renowned chef, Pedro Miguel, this is the first restaurant in the world to achieve FSC certification. All the wood used to build the restaurant, and used to equip the restaurant comes from FSC-certified forests.

Pedro Miguel refers to himself as “a cook and Amazon researcher.” He opened his first restaurant, Malabar in 2014, where much of the menu included food from the Amazon. For many years, he has been exploring food sources from the Amazon and Amazonian cuisine, before taking the decision to open Ámaz.

“I had to make a restaurant totally dedicated to studying the Amazonian products, understanding the bases of its kitchen, spreading its culture, transmitting its importance and preserving its life,” explained Miguel.
