Welcome to our first Peruvian class with Jenniffer – originally from Lima and wanting to bring her national food alive in our kitchens!
What better why than to imagine yourself wondering through some of the food markets of Lima.  The vibrant colours of exotic fruits, the noise and sounds of people who love their food and the endless street food stalls   With influences from Italy, Spain and China this country spans from the sea through to  jungle – imagine the variety of food!
Start the class with a Chicha morada – a traditional Peruvian drink made from purple corn, pineapple, cinnamon, limes and cloves and get ready to prepare dishes that may include:
  • Ceviche – this has been declared to be part of Peru’s “national heritage” and has had a holiday declared in its honor so it must be good!
  • Tequeños – fried breaded cheese sticks
  • Sanguche de Chicharron – pork belly with sweet potatoes and onions in a toasted bun
  • The Sauces – so important  * Huancaina sauce (Peru’s great sauce!) * Ocopa (aji huacatay), * Rocoto and * Salsa criollo
  • Picarones – sweet potatoes and pumpkin doughnuts
Book fast to avoid disappointment – a first for Oxfordshire!!!!
