I've gotten this book before and loved it. Not only the charming design and layout of the book, but the wonderful recipes for Peruvian dishes, which reflect Violeta Autumn's Russian-Jewish heritage. I have enjoyed many of these dishes, both in Perú and when prepared by my wife, who is Peruvian, and can attest to the fact that these recipes are delicious y contienen la esencia de la auténtica cocina peruana (and contain the essence of genuine Peruvian cooking), but with that little touch of 'the old country.'

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a book of recipes for Peruvian cuisine with a smidgen of Russian-Yiddish taste thrown in. Try it, you'll like it!

My cousin told me about this book; his mom purchased her copy when they lived in Bolivia. I bought the book because he'd told me how wonderful it was. I'm delighted with all the illustrations and the recipes and am so glad I bought it. I'm eager to try out lots of the recipes.

Actually written by hand. So much love in this food. I grew in Peru and found things from my grandmother
I have been using it now for a while and even bought one for my sister for her birthday. The recipes are great. Very accurate. The instructions are detailed and one does not need a lot of knowledge to make fantastic Peruvian food. I love the Jewish touch. I have been recommending this book to all my friends. By the price jump I see it is getting lots of attention.
By it you will not regret it.

Received ahead of schedule. This was a replacement book for one that was stolen. Has the worlds best cheesecake recipe.

On a side note, I don't wish to be required to write more than a few words, as a vendor could you share that with Amazon?

thanks,

Ivy
