A color illustrated and extremely practical cookbook of the most popular and traditional Peruvian main dishes, drinks, and desserts. It offers alternatives for the English-speaking cook in finding substitutes, if necessary, for Peruvian ingredients, such as chiles that form the basis for the cuisine. Some dishes use a mixture of fresh chiles and pastes from ají amarillo, rocoto, and panca chiles.
This is food people want to cook and the directions are relatively easy to follow. Peru is full of these kinds of recipes: flavorful, often one-pot, often family-friendly, definitely unique dishes.
