3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointed, 8 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Food and Cooking of Peru: Traditions - Ingredients - Tastes - Techniques (Hardcover)
I wanted a recipe book that reflected my culinary experience in Peru but I found hardly any of the recipes in this book. No Chupe de Pescado, my favourite, and only one Ceviche. Considering Peru holds 30% of the world's fish in its waters seafood dishes are important there. Too many meaty dishes here for my personal taste.

I wish there had been more of the dishes here that I went potty over in Peru.

To consider that peruvian food is only Ceviche and fish soup does not make justice to the peruvian soil. There are more than 70 climates of the world in Peru giving a very wealthy array of products, and the Coast is 2000 miles at different geografical landmarks (paralels from Ecuador) with many different species and specialities to prepare them that are not only ceviche or fish soup.
This book was made to incentivate people living outside Peru to cook their delicious recipes with the ingredients bought in their own markets. The recipes found in this book help the people who can not go and eat in Peru but have the interest to know about its food, not about the food of one town only but about several towns in different geographical regions. This book is a presentation of the variety and versatility of the Peruvian food. Maybe a more objective review could be made.
