Having married into a Peruvian family and visited that beautiful country, I can honestly say that in fact this book truly represents Peruvian cookery. The unfortunate review giving a score of just two is both inaccurate and misguiding. For any-one out there who wishes to be introduced to many aspects of Peruvian cookery (no book will capture them all), this a great book to start with.

I usually buy a Cookery book from a country I have visited - if I have enjoyed the food. The food in Peru was excellent, both tasty and healthy. We had no idea what to expect and were treated to a wonderful variety of colourful meat and fish dishes, and some new variations on old deserts.

I spotted this book at Lima airport-at a vastly inflated price- and was delighted to find it for sale on Amazon.

'The Food and Cooking of Peru' is well worth buying, not only for the well-illustrated recipes, but also for the very readable section on Traditions and Festivals which prefaces the book. What I particularly like about the recipes is that all the ingredients are readily available here, and if they are not, then an alternative is offered. For example, the recipe for 'Potatoes in cheese and chilli sauce' calls for a very special queso fresco,'fresh cheese' with a mild flavour, found in The Mantaro Valley. Mild feta cheese is suggested as an acceptable substitute-and it works. The chicken dishes are delicious, and all the family fell for 'Budin de pan'-bread pudding with cherry syrup, quite unlike the conventional bread pudding we have here.

Go to Peru. Buy the book.

The diversity of Peruvian cooking is captured in this beautiful book, Inchicapi de Gallina, Pesque de Quinua, Papa a la Huancaina...a reminder that fish dishes are not all there is to this beautiful 3-region country.
