Product Description


Peruvians, as Paddington Bear fans will recall, like to keep their food under their hats. In Ceviche, Morales lifts the lid on his native cuisine, which is considered by Escoffier as among the best in the world. His book is a delight. Between stunning tiled covers, Morales sets off the eponymous delicacies of marinated raw fish with more comforting dishes, plus the frisky, pisco-based cocktails he serves at his restaurant in Soho. Not that these are tricky, chef-level recipes: it is mainly simple homely stuff (Nicki Sengit THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Food book of the year')

In the form of Martin Morales, Peruvian food now has the most charming and dedicated ambassador, if not apostle, that it could hope for (David Sexton EVENING STANDARD)

This is cuisine with a kick (VOGUE)

This place is brilliant. The cooking is super-confident, rare and interesting, the look of the room is great and the bar must be fantastic in the evening. The music is lovely and the staff are incredibly sweet and kind. And it's cheap. I never really want to go anywhere else again (Giles Coren THE TIMES)

The book has the dual attraction for me of having 100 cool recipes and - maybe a niche consideration - a cool textured front cover that makes it look like a wall of tiles (Samuel Muston THE INDEPENDENT)

the epitome of great Peruvian food; fresh, bold and exciting. Perfect for a summer dinner party (PSYCHOLOGIES)

For trend-setters. Peruvian cuisine is an intriguing blend of influences around the world... it's now firmly on Britain's culinary map. This book helps you to create the unique cuisine at home (WAITROSE KITCHEN)

Peruvian cuisine has a fine ambassador in Martin Morales, owner of Soho's Ceviche restaurant. His absorbing book covers everything from Andean village specialities to street food, as well as the signature dishes from the restaurant. Along the way, you receive a real insight into Peruvian culture and cuisine... delicious (SQUARE MEAL)

Vibrant, healthy and using lots f fish, chillies, corn and citrus fruits, Peruvian cooking is some of the most exciting in the world - a fact picked up by the great chef Escoffier more than a century ago... You'll love the cover too - very strokable (CRUMBS)

clean, zingy and refreshing, with a spicy kick (THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Trendy London restaurant Ceviche prides itself on combining the exotic flavours of Peru with the UK's finest fish and seafood, and this book shares many of owner Martin Morales' favourite dishes...Ceviche provides a wealth of information about perfecting Peru's national dish, as well as recipes for all kinds of other South-American inspired salads, sweets and stews (GREAT BRITISH FOOD MAGAZINE)

Ceviche restaurant launched in 2012, igniting a passion for Peruvian food among London foodies, who were soon frantically trying to outdo one another with their talk of tamales, quinottos and escabeches. If you love the restaurant, or you haven't been able to bag a table and long to try Peruvian food, this book is the answer. Martin Morales takes you through the basics of the cuisine...interspersed are stories about Martin's family and life in Peru, and photographs of the country that are almost as mouthwatering as the food (JAMIE MAGAZINE)

Peruvian food was the dining trend of last year - now whip it up at home with London restaurant Ceviche's new self-titled book. It's stuffed with recipes for grilled fish, spicy meats and light desserts (ZEST)

Ceviche, the citrus-cured fish dish, takes centre stage at the brilliant London restaurant of the same name. This offshoot book is more instructive than your typical 'restaurant cookbook', and will have you rustling up the ceviches and anticuchos (marinaded meat or fish skewers) before you know it. Martin Morales's passion for his home country's cooking practically leaps of the page - as does the lickable food photography (TIME OUT)

One of the pioneers of the Peruvian food revolution in Britain, Lima-born Morales opened his Soho restaurant, Ceviche, to much fanfare 18 months ago. Now he has released a cookbook detailing some of the restaurant's signature plates - including those quaffable pisco sours - and other key dishes in what is considered the gourmet capital of Latin America... A detailed section on the more unusual ingredients and where to find them in London is worth its weight in rocoto peppers (FOOD & TRAVEL)

Latin American restaurants are hot at the moment but this is the first cookbook to show how to make this exciting cuisine at home. There are so many flavours to explore: tongue-tingling ceviche, spiced meat and fish dishes, superfood grains and special ice cream (Sally Hughes BBC GOOD FOOD)

Ceviche is a popular Peruvian seafood dish and is also the name Peruvian restaurateur Martin Morales gave to his London restaurant. Now Martin has published a cookbook of the same name offering his favourite recipes to show off Peruvian cuisine at its best. Foodies will love the refreshing recipes and if you don't recognise some of the ingredients, there's no need to worry - there's a useful section on suppliers for the harder-to-find ones. (CHOICE)

Martin Morales, Chef Patron of restaurant Ceviche, gives us an insight into the marriage of cultures that made Peruvian food what it is today. With the first two chapters dedicated to the art of great Ceviche and Peruvian street food, this book goes on to provide good, clear recipes for fish, meat and desserts plus a drinks section, and Martin's tips throughout the book help to bring a taste of Peru to the reader (CHEF MAGAZINE)

Ceviche: Peruvian Kitchen by Martin Morales has also enlivened out family table, with fabulous raw fish salads, escabeche (sautéed marinated fish); sweet Coca-Cola chicken and some handsome ways with South American pulses and grains' (Rose Prince THE DAILY TELEGRAPH)

This collection of recipes, from London restaurant Ceviche, celebrates the best of Peruvian cuisine. Peruvian-born restaurateur and chef, Martin Morales, who founded the Soho eaterie in 2012, combines his love of Peruvian food and fresh produce with simple techniques to show you how to make the best ceviche as well as more than 100 other dishes... all are utterly delicious (GOOD HOMES)

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and inspirational 2 May 2014
By Bookie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Ceviche Peruvian Kitchen is, simply, stunning. One of the best cookery books I've ever read and one I'll go back to again and again.

Martin Morales writes with passion; it's reflected in the recipes and the presentation. The book is filled with a sense of zest for life and vibrancy and many recipes use zingy, spicy ingredients which mirror that pizzaz! The photographs alone are almost tangible. They not only tempt, they inspire.

It's a privilege to read the stories behind many of the recipes. It's a book filled with memories which add a whole different depth and dimension to the cooking side. Every recipe has a story about family life or Peruvian culture. There's a real sense of history and insight into the many influences, for example Chinese, Italian and Latino, which have shaped traditional Peruvian cooking.

There's a real energy to the recipes; ingredients are tasty, colourful and often packed with nutrients. But the cooking style is easily achieved in any home kitchen. Martin Morales has compiled a selection of dishes and drinks which can be prepared by anyone and look as if they've been served by a professional. They're impressive but practical. No way out ingredients or endless hours of preparation so it's the type of book which should happily grace the shelf of anyone with even a remote interest in cooking.

This is one of very few cookery books which have totally blown me away. I love it and it's one I'll be working with for a long time to come.

My thanks to publisher, Ten Speed Press for a review copy via Netgalley.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ideal cookbook? Quite possibly... 26 July 2013
By M. Agar
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The moment you unwrap this book, you can appreciate the time, thought and effort that has gone in to creating the definitive Peruvian cookbook. The 'padded' cover is wonderful. Clean, fresh and inviting, like the tiles of a Peruvian cafe.

Once inside, the book is packed with delicious sounding recipes and beautifully photographed dishes, printed on heavyweight paper to give the whole package a feel of quality. As for the recipes, the ingredients and steps are laid out simply and clearly.

Having spent some weeks in Peru earlier this year, enjoying the fresh local seafood and the delicious mountain cooking, I searched for a clear recipe book that would allow me to enjoy a taste of Peru in the comfort of my own English home. Until Ceviche came along, I searched in vain. But it was worth the wait.

Ceviche is quite possibly the ideal cookbook, allowing you to prepare and enjoy good quality food from your own kitchen, with just the right level of adventure to spice up any evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peru 20 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having recently visited Peru we were keen to see if food in the Uk was just as good.
After visiting Ceviche in London we can say it is and the book details all the favourites that we tried.
A well illustrated easy to follow cook book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ceviche: Musical Food For The Soul 22 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I first saw Martin Morales on James Martins Saturday Kitchen and loved the meal he cooked. It looked amazing! On a rare visit to London I managed to get a table at Ceviche and had the most delicious meal EVER!

Obviously once the book came out, it was purchased and was put on the shelf with rest of the dust gathers - but this is different! I don't like fish, or rather I didn't like fish - i do this way marinated in Tigers Milk!!

If you want something a little different to WOW your dinner party guests I wholly recommend this book.

Now I just need to get back to London and eat there again ... sigh happy thoughts

1.0 out of 5 stars I only like the cover!
Despite being called 'Ceviche', this book has only a handful of basic Ceviche recipes. A great disappointment. The 'tiled' cover is the only redeeming attribute. Read more

Paper quality left a bit to be desired. The recipes were very different and although I haven't tried any, will in the future. An impulse buy after watching Saturday Kitchen
