chasqui_482 It's been a process, long hours,dedication, sacrifices... it's been a laughter, a couple of tears and a miracle here and there to get a cebiche I am proud to call mine! I am not saying it's the best or perfect ... But it's mine and that's all that counts! ;) #peru #peruana #peruano #chasqui482 #cebicheperuano #camote #choclo #lechedetigre #marcaperu #lima #chef #calamar #camaron #cilantro #poissoncru #igersperu #lbpost 3w

chasqui_482 There's a saying that many Peruvians live by and that's: "Una comida no es comida sin su ají!" Which refers to the feeling of incompletion or unsatisfied when they don't have a spicy condiment for their food. Here in the states or at least in my experience the "aji verde" aka "Peruvian green chili sauce" varies from restaurant to restaurant. Sure they are all very good and perfect as a table condiment, but the problem is that the American audience is set on the notion that there is only "one" type of aji. The reality is that there is a great variety of recipes for making a spicy Peruvian chili sauce. Some have milk, some have saltine crackers, some mayo, others sautéed onions and chilies, others use raw onions and chilies, some are green, red, yellow.. I mean the possibilities are endless! For example I have a couple of delicious recipes for making my sauces and today I have a new and unique Peruvian aji verde. My aji for today's meal is a blend of sautéed green chiles, onions, garlic, and celery. Seasoned with mustard, salt,
Black Pepper, dried oregano and interestingly enough some feta cheese! The mix is amazing and delicious. For eating simply with a piece of boiled potato, to having it center stage at my table my aji verde is unique and delicious you are sure not to find at your local peruvian restaurant! #peru #peruvian #peruana #peruano #marcaperu #igersperu #lbpost #eqeko #chasqui482 #tastemadefamous #tastemade #spicy #aji #ajiverde #ajo #picante #peruvianchile #spicycondiment #chile

chasqui_482 I am a firm believer that a meal is not a meal if it doesn't have a "sweet" ending. And on hot summer days ice cold desserts can be somewhat limited and/or tiresome. My chilled rice pudding with quinoa aka arroz con leche con quinoa is a perfect alternative for a light lunch on a hot summers day. #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #marcaperu #igersperu #summer2014 #arroz #arrozconleche #ricepudding #quinoa #lbpost #lbgrammers #chef #beattheheat #chilleddessert #tastemadefamous #tastemade #sortedfood #foodnetwork 2mon

chasqui_482 Have you ever had or seen a fresh garbanzo aka chickpea? Normally we find them dried and or canned but rarely fresh and vibrant like these emerald beans. As a chef I take inspiration in all my ingredients and today I feel like playing around with these fresh garbanzo beans and see what delicious concoction I can come up with ... #nofilter #natural #healthy #peru #peruana #peruvian #garbanzo #chickpea #beans #meneatra #legume #summervegetable #chef #homecooking #marcaperu #aji #healthy #farmersmarket 3mon

chasqui_482 I have to admit that going to the supermarket and finding nothing but the most juicy, vine-ripened, ruby red Roma tomatoes at a really cheap price; it is tempting not to over buy a pound or two. Having a fridge weighted down with pounds of tomatoes I could have easily made sauce for pasta but I decided to celebrate this tomato season with a three cheese tomato tart! This tart is seasoned with freshly cracked black pepper, good Swiss Gruyère , salty Parmesan, and creamy-herbed goat cheese. Served with a lightly dress baby green salad and you have the perfect slice of summer on you plate. #igersperu #lbpost #longbeach #chef #catering #homemade #homecooking #latina #latino #orgullolatino #tart #pastry #tomato #goatcheese #parmesan #swiss #gruyère #salad #summer2014 #chasqui482 #tastemade #tastemadefamous #peruvian #french 3mon

chasqui_482 If there is one dessert more quintessential and compulsory for the Fourth of July.. It's pie. There is nothing more American than pie. It is the perfect dessert for any Independence Day BBQ, picnic, or dinner. Sure you can buy really good pies already made but there is nothing more satisfying than getting in the kitchen, making pastry and mixed berry filling, to celebrate and commemorate the birth of this wonderful nation that has given my family and I more than what I could have ever asked for. I so proud to call myself an American. Happy Fourth of July everybody and whatever you do today, make sure you eat pie ;) #peru #peruana #peruvian #peruana #USA #happyfourth #july4 #indepenceday2014 #pie #strawberry #blueberry #raspberry #blackberry #whippedcream #piecrust #allamerican #lbpost #chasqui482 #tastemade #patriotism #tart 4mon

chasqui_482 Making coulis might seen a little daunting to some people but in reality it is a simple process. It is a sauce made with cooked down berries. Any berry, from the common blueberry to exotic berries like the Pichu berry from Peru can be turned into a delicious jam-like sauce perfect for any dessert. Take for example my most opulent cheesecake. It is topped of with an Pichu (aka aguaymanto) coulis. Indulgent, sweet, and aromatic, this cheesecake is crowned with a golden layer of the most unique coulis you will ever have! #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #peruvianfood #cheesecake #coulis #aguaymanto #pichuberry #sur_america #lbpost #tastemade #igersperu #creamcheese #chef #pastry #orgullolatino #chasqui482 #latino 4mon

chasqui_482 I think many of you think I am constantly eating as lavishly as my pix on my account... And most of the times I am but there are days where even I don't fell like cooking! Some on you might think I am even high maintenance but honestly there is nothing I rather do than to eat my favorite conform foods in my PJs watching netflix all day long ;). I have always said the simplest foods are the best. For example one of my all time favorite comfort foods is white rice with papa a la huancaina. No fuzz, no mess, low key but absolutely delicious. What's your favorite low key comfort food!? ;) #peruvian #peruana #peruano #peru #igersperu #tastemade #lbpost #lifeofachef #simplebutdelicious #homecooking #potato #papaalahuancaina #arroz #aji #ajiamarillo #chile #spicy #sur_america #serrano #machupichu #marcaperu 4mon

Amaro chasqui_482
chasqui_482 Aguaymanto- It might seem strange or even disturbing that someone could get emotional and filled with excitement when they come across a fruit. But when I came across these Inca berries aka Pichu Berries I was ecstatic! I couldn't believe I had such exotic fruit right in front of me! I have read about them and seen them on TV but never seen them for sale anywhere around me local area. So it is without saying, I bought a box and immediately came straight home to taste these nutritious, healthy, and very floral golden berries. Now the possibilities for me to try them in recipes are endless... Which to start with!? Have you ever had these berries? And is so how where they prepared!? Any suggestions!? #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #aguaymanto #pichuberry #pichuberries #incaberry #marcaperu #lifeofachef #southamerica #fruit #fruta #uvilla #capilí #uchuvilla #machupichu #andes #mountais #lbpost #tastemade #healthy #powerfullantioxidant 4mon

chasqui_482 They say rules are made to be broken.. And I say traditions are made to be reinvented! When we see or hear the word "Quinoa" most us cringe with memories of childhood as you were told "you must eat it... Because it was healthy for you" and all you wanted to have for diner was a piece of cake. So therefore this Andean staple and tradition grew up on us with loathing and distaste. But now with a few ingenuities the wheel can be reinvented! Take for example this quinoa based dish. It's Picante de Quinoa con Mariscos a la Chorrillana. Spicy and creamy quinoa topped of with sautéed seafood.... I bet if we ate quinoa like this everyday ... It would be on everyone's favorite list! #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #quinoa #quinua #mariscos #seafood #igersperu #lbpost #chasqui482 #chef #chorrillos #lima #andes #healthy #aji #picante #latino #orgullolatino 4mon

chasqui_482 Many of us love and adore our moms' and grandmothers' Caucau... Traditionally made with mondongo (tripe) or sometimes chicken. But here is a quick and easy summer version of the beloved Peruvian style curry. It's CauCau de Mariscos! Seasoned with turmeric, cilantro, mint, and a lot of aji Amarillo; this version of caucau is rich and creamy with all the flavors and smells we all recall from our childhood. #peru #peruana #peruano #peruvian #peruvianfood #igersperu #seafood #mariscos #marcaperu #caucau #mint #hierbabuena #lbpost #lbgramers #tastemade #mussels #shrimp #calamari #curry #sur_america #summer2014 #chasqui482 4mon
