The Peruvian Brothers will be the guest chefs on the segment representing Avocados From Peru. The duo will demonstrate how to make Crab Stuffed Peruvian Avocados and will display other popular dishes including the Peruvian Avocado Triple Decker Sandwich, Peruvian Avocado Ceviche and Peruvian Avocado Causa Rellena.

The Peruvian Brothers were born and raised off the coast of Lima, Peru, where they have since brought their business and food experience to the United States, serving the Washington, DC, area Peruvian food straight from their food truck. Aside from food, the brothers also have quite the athletic gene -- Giuseppe is a former Olympic rower and Mario is a well-versed sailor. Together the pair serves as renowned global ambassadors for Avocados From Peru.

For Baltimore viewers who sleep in on Saturday mornings, the recorded version of the segment will be available on the WBAL-TV website.
