Lima. Jun. 25 (ANDINA). The Day of "Pollo a la Brasa" or rotisserie chicken. which was to be celebrated the fourth Sunday of June. will now be commemorated every third Sunday of July. Peruvian Agriculture Minister Adolfo de Cordova announced Friday.

'Who has not eaten a delicious ceviche or rotisserie chicken? These traditional Peruvian dishes are protein-rich sources.' said the minister.
