OK, so I'm biased. Although a "gringa", I've lived in Peru and Ecuador and visited many other Latin American countries. Of all these countries, Peru, IMO, has the finest, tastiest cuisine. I learned to cook in Latin America, moving south of the border straight from university, but I can't say I learned all 300 of these recipes living there. This book has an excellent selection of sweet, savory, and spicy dishes and now I can add to my repertoire.

Most of the ingredients for these recipes are available here but in some areas of the U.S. it will be more difficult to get hold of Peruvian corn (I can get it frozen in my local Latin American market) and rocoto and yellow hot peppers. My market does have rocoto paste and yellow pepper paste (and I've seen that Amazon has these available for purchase also) but some recipes may need the fresh peppers and they're really not to be found. I've found that Scotch bonnet or habanero peppers can be substituted for the yellow pepper, but there's nothing that compares to a fresh rocoto. (Don't even think of using some Mexican pepper for this.) But almost all the other ingredients for Peruvian cooking are easily accessible.

Super food, super recipes. If you're an adventurous cook but are not familiar with Peruvian food, don't pass up this opportunity to prepare some really great meals.

Edited on 4/17/2014 to add: I suppose nothing in life is perfect. The recipe for "pastel de choclo" on page 44 is authentic but I suggest adding 1-2 cups of finely shredded cheese such as 6 Cheese Italian to make it even tastier and of a better texture. I've always made it that way and my Peruvian husband is quite happy with my version. Without the cheese, the recipe is too much like pudding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to learn Peruvian cooking February 9, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My wife is from Peru, and I gave this to my wife and a copy to my Mom. It is in English so "Gringos" like me can understand the recipes and ingredients. I am familiar with Peruvian food and I love it!!!!!! It even has a section for vegetarian recipes for those so inclined. According to my wife, who is from Lima, the recipes are very authentic and represent the taste of Peru very well.

If you are looking to try Peruvian cuisine, which is finally being internationally recognized for its diversity, taste, and variety, this is a good book to own. Or, you could marry a Peruvian like me...but be careful, get ready to either join a gym or change your wardrobe, the food is so delicious!!!!!!

Viva El Peru!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one! January 30, 2013
Wonderful recipes
This book has a great display of everyday Peruvian recipes. They are not only homey but delicious and easy to make. So far I've made potatoes with ocopa sauce; the best chocolate cake ever, very moist and intensely chocolatey; and the salsas chapter is fun and colorful, with the right amount of chili peppers to spice up any dish. Congrats on the book! This will be by my side in the kitchen for a long time!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I owned several peruvian cookbooks and this one did not dissapoint. I took 1 star off only because it does not have many pictures. I like when the pictures are next to the recipe and not just in the middle of the book like this one with only a few photos.

A lot of great recipes, but without the pictures one simply just can't get inspired. This is great for those that have tried a few of these delicious dishes and now wish to recreate that magic at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! January 22, 2013
Amazing recipes, everything is perfectly explained and very detailed. The recopilation is representative, you will find recipes from different regions of Peru. What I like the best is that the recipes are made from scratch, as we cooked at home. Highly reccommended: causa, arroz con pollo, bolitas de nuez and suspiro a la limena.

By Knlsn
Bought this book since my husband is peruvian and all his friends are peruvian. i wanted to make things with the recipes i got from the website but I kept losing the papers I printed out so buying the book was so much better. More recipes and so far i made rice pudding and it was fantastic. There are so many others I plan on making soon. very authentic tastes. thank you so much for publishing this book.
