chasqui_482 Knowing and caring for good Ingredients is paramount to becoming a good chef. It's not just about innovation, creativity, and good knife skills. It's also crucial to have a sense of responsibility of what you use to craft delicious dishes. I have had the pleasure a couple of time to grow my own produce, but in recent times I have really let me green thumb turn blue. Currently, I was handed down gorgeous potted Aji amarillo plants. Very special and rare for my area, I was thrilled to have them in my own backyard! And now that they are giving me ají I am even more excited! It's not like I can go down to my local market and buy a pound of this South American chili... So having the pleasure of walking out and picking fresh aji for my aji de Gallina, causa, or anything my heart desires.. Really makes me feel like a good chef. #aji #ajiamarillo #picante #chilipod #homegrown #greenthumb #igersperu #marcaperu #peru #peruana #peruvian #peruano #peruvianfood #freshingredients #lbpost #tastemadefamous #tastemade #DTSA #DTLB #takethatfarmersmarket #springhasarrived #rkt #realkitchentalk #reasonstolovesantaana #reasonstolovelongbeach #chef #chefslife #chile #excitedtostartcooking 3d

chasqui_482 A lot of people think I am a picky eater... An esoteric glutton... But the honest truth is I like simple foods... And that's not to say un unpalatable foods. For example pan con tamal... Nothing extraordinary but at the same time sensational! With salsa criolla and aji con huacatay... My pan con tamal makes a delicious meal. #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #peruvianfood #chasqui482 #lbpost #tastemadefamous #pan #pancontamal #piura #tamalverde #cilantro #culantro #frenchbaguette #panfrances #aji #huacatay #salsacriolla #igersperu #marcaperu #eatdtsa #DTSA #whyisfoodsoooogooood #rkt #realkitchentalk 1w

chasqui_482 You know...I think that ginger beer sometimes is Under Appreciated. Used as a mixer ginger beer is usually a catalyst for many a great drink. But the truth is ginger beer is delicious in itself! Fresh... Refreshing.. And pungent ginger beer like Bundaberg's is a great alternative to any ice cold pop and Not to be confused with ginger ale. Ginger beer is the star for my thirsty Thursday! #ginger #beer #gingerbeer #gingerale #kion #bundagerg #aussie #australia #thirstythursday #lbpost #chasqui482 #realkitchentalk #rkt #soda #pop #refreshing #importedbeer #moscowmule #salud #cheers #chefslife 1w

chasqui_482 I think that there are three world crops that really sustain the world. Corn, rice, and potato! The latter has gelped Sustain large empires such as the Incan empire. Potatoes where so plentiful that the Incan ingeniously developed a form of preserving by dehydration. Thanks to them and their method we can now enjoy many types of chuños (whole dried potatoes), and stews made with pieces of dried potatoes like the carapulcra. It's a stew of tender pork and dried potatoes. This iconic peruvian dish really exemplifies the rich culture and the ancestry of the Incan empire in the mordern world. #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #peruvianfood #igersperu #chasqui482 #marcaperu #carapulcra #ekeko #eqeko #eatdtsa #eqekoDTSA #eatdtsa #DTSA #porkstew #chuño #yucca #fries 2w

chasqui_482 Peru is the land of potato and Aji. And while there are a lot of plates that exemplify the heritage and relationship the country has with both; there is one dish that makes for a delicious and easy side dish. It's a hash made with ají amarillo and potatoes! Fried until crispy and with such a great aji depth of flavor... This hash can be enjoyed with anything your heart desires. #aji #ajiamarillo #chile #potato #papa #ajiacodepapa #marcaperu #igersperu #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #peruvianfood #chasqui482 #tastemadefamous #potatohash #brunch #eatdtsa #DTSA #whyisfoodsoooogooood #rkt 2w

chasqui_482 Causas can come in different shapes and sizes. Some innovative, others just wierd .... But there is nothing like the classic causa limeña. Aji amarillo seasoned mashed potatoes terrine. I take tasty tuna salad and sandwhich it between two fluffy layers of the most silken mashed potatoes. With its traditional garnishments of a Botija olive and a slice of hard boiled egg.... Causa Limeña is perfection.

chasqui_482 The indispensable ají amarillo is only found in South America. And in Peru, in particular, it is the Undisputed king of chiles. Used in almost all savory recipes this fruity yet spicy hot pepper is star in many of my dishes and In particular my Aji de Galllina. Chicken in a creamy sauce made with bread, milk, and aji amarillo... This criolle dish is one of my favorite to make and to eat.

chasqui_482 Yaki mandu are fun, easy, and most importantly delicious. Warm, soft, and juicy in the inside, cut the fatty pork filling with a soy-vinegar dipping sauce. #mandu #yakimandu #seoul #korea #koreana #koreanbbq #koreano #southkorea #pork #buchu #soyvinegar #dumpling #igerskorea #lbpost #chasqui482 #littlesnack #homecooking #rkt #realkitchentalk #dayoff 1mon
