Peruvian-Inspired Recipes

Peruvian-inspired recipes with ingredients available to home cooks outside of Peru… Having traveled extensively in Peru, and studied both food an culture for years, I have fallen in love with the vibrant chile peppers, earthy spices, and fresh ingredients!

It is not my aim to replace the traditional and classic dishes of Peru, rather, I want to bring new dishes with an American spin and with ingredients available both locally and via online sources. Living in a border city (McAllen) in south Texas, many of the ingredients like avocados, chiles, tropical fruits, quinoa, etc. are widely available. Mexican and Peruvian food share many common ingredients.

You’ll find recipes for main dishes, sides, desserts, cocktails, and more… some stick fairly closely to the traditional, while some take a lot of creative license. I hope you’ll take a look!
