Session cuisine péruvienne à Paris

De retour à Paris  après un mois et demi au Pérou pour y trouver des recettes… Résultats? 92 portraits de personnes à travers tout le Pérou et 92 recettes associées…

Hier, je me suis mise en devoir de préparer 18 plats péruviens pour vérifier qu’ils étaient faisables en France avec les ingrédients importés…

Avec une aide cuisinière de premier ordre, à savoir Eloise, et un photographe semi-professionnel, à savoir Jean, nous avons réalisé 18 plats et les photos de 13 plats…

Bien sur, avec tout cela, il fallait bien des bouches pour tout goûter, critiquer et suggérer… Je remercie donc les 12 convives qui se sont prêté au jeu de découverte de la cuisine péruvienne!

Je remercie Frédéric d’El Inti (Paris 3e) pour m’avoir conseillé sur les produits à utiliser.

Voici quelques photos en avance de phase sur le livre:

Who did I meet?

My first step in the South was supposed to be very risky according to all tourist guides! please stop beleiving them and just apply usual safety measures such as not going out at night alone, not showing your wealth (nice jewelery, big camera, …) because people from Pisco are adorable… They gave me nice recommandations and sweet recipes…

But I had to move very quickly to my next destination, Paracas and Ica… where I met Jorge Diaz, a part-time policeman studying systems engineering… He presented me to his mother to exchange recipes from Ica and from France and we went north to Ica to discover a nice ols school pisco bodegua…

In Huacachina, I met a nice limenian couple, Mauricio and Zuhuley, while sandboarding in the dunes… As all Peruvian, they love their food and gave me recipes while hiking the sand dunes.

Pisco! This is what I discoverd at the “bodega” Tres Generaciones close to Ica… And infinite thank to Cecilia and her entrepreunarial mind gathering best Pisco, best tradicional food and very soon a very nice hotel in the surroundings of Ica… I think i’ll go back to Ica just to thave the chance to be there one more time!

Arequipa, the famous white city with a huge gastronomic heritage… it was not easy to see that at the beginning because Arequipenos really are arrogant about their city and not easy to communicate with… But in the end, I met great people…

On the top, I really thank Angela and Miguel, working in Artistic development and movie maker who are passionate about art and cuisine… Miguel, the head of the association of Picanterias of Arequipa, always found another typical plate or product to talk about when we went to the picanteria el Cau cau II in Arequipa…  And Angela told me about the local artistic development and I enjoyed a lot her passion and dynamic attitude.

The sisters Pamela and Vanessa selling quinoa and other dry products at the market spent a lot of time to axplain me all about the local soups you can find in a picanteria, day by day… we got so passionate in the topic that a chef passing by got into the discussion…Hernan, Saludos!

Travel Update 4 – La Selva

I am travelling Peru to discover Peruvian cooking specialties and innovations. I meet people in different places to find recipes to write a peruvian cooking book.

So where did I go since my last update on 2nd August? Who did I meet? What food did I try? What recipes did I get?

Where did I go since my last update onthe 2nd of August ?

Tarapoto / Lamas / Sauce / Iquitos / Nautas / San Miguel

Who did I meet?

When I arrived in Tarapoto after 8hours of exhausting bus, it was noisy, too hot and people too pushy… fortunately I met some really nice people, especially Medinacelly from Hidalgo tours… he put me in contact with Debora…

Debora in her resort, Laguna Azul, San Martin

Debora in her resort, Laguna Azul, San Martin

Debora, cook and head of the “Fundo Angaiza” a paradise place on hearth serving dishes from the selva let me cook with her for 3 hours… I thank her so much for explaining me all the secrets of her selva dishes such as patarashca.

I really appreciated meeting a great cook giving value to local selva products in tradicional or innovative dishes : Elia Garcia de Reategui. Her contribution to amazonian cooking is really impressive and her fight to have the “cocina amazonica” recognized is worth it… from what I tried at her restaurant la Patarashca.

Well I was told Tarapoto is the culinary capital of peruvian amazonia. That is mainly due to the wide range of resources available in the region… among them, chocolate. It was planted as alternative culture to the coca leaf and it was a real challenge… and I understood the importance of the work made by chocolate factories such as la Orquidea for the cocoa growing communities thanks to the explanations of Twiggie who is in charge of quality and porduction at Orquidea, Tarapoto. The chocolates are really good…

After this nice time I Tarapoto and wanted to stay… but I carries on my journey to Iquitos and met Kevin, a young peruvian fascinated by all the nice unknown places to discover around Iquitos… Thanks to him, I enjoyed the evenings of Iquitos, drinking a good beer on the shore of the Amazon river…

After some nice encounters in the market of Belen, I joined Juan Carlos, a man proud of his amazonian heritage, fighting against prejudices towards native indians by allowing tourists to come to his village 4hours from Iquitos by bus and boat to discover what the amazonian forets has to offer… As a retired cook, he showed me how to prepare a really nice Patarashca for which we went to the heart of the forest, looking for “hoja de bijao”, the leaf of bijao, which is necessary for the dish…

Travel Update 3 – From la Costa to la Selva alta

I am travelling Peru to discover Peruvian cooking specialties and innovations. I meet people in different places to find recipes to write a peruvian cooking book.

So where did I go since my last update on 26th July? Who did I meet? What food did I try? What recipes did I get?

Where did I go since my last update on Sunday 26th July?

Chiclayo / Santa Rosa / Bagua Grande / Jaén / Chachapoyas

Who did I meet?

At the begining of this week, I wasn’t feeling good and could eat abything else than rice… What a weird thing to be in a country for a gastronomic tour and not being able to eat… Especially where I was: Chiclayo, famous for its amazing fish dishes…

Ana from the “Trebol” saved me by proposing me something gentle for my stomach and really delicious: la causa ferrenafena…

I wanted to relax a bit so I joined a tour which gave me the opportunity to  get 2 news recipes: the unexpected vegetarian hamburger of Nachis in Monsefù and the “conserva de membrillo” which is a very simple but delicious sweet… This helped me to get ready for new adventures…on the road to Bagua Grande!

There I met this great women who lives building her dream day after day… Her dream to preserve a small part of one of the most unique habitat in the world, “El bosque nublado” (cloudy forest) in the area called “Bosque Berlin”…. This is Leyda.

She hosted me at her place and invited me to join the day trip for her mother’s birthday as her friend before going to her conservation area. As a professional biologist, she showed me the flora of the region and told me about the initiatives about local products such as cofee and cocoa.

Her parents, Ricardo y Carmela are very open minded persons who chose at a point of their life to change what they were doing and they bought the piece of land they named “Bosque Berlin” as a reference to the wall of Berlin that they crossed, seeking for better life. They now mainly cultivate their grounds while preserving the forest all around, applying the best practices their daughter Leyda is pushing for…

In the meantime I met Yeissy who, on behalf of Bosque Berlin, is teaching children from the surrounding mountains how to respect the environment through the program “Tierra de Niños”.

Cesar, a student from a Limenian University was there as a biologist volunteer to  plant new trees to restaure the habitat of the monkey Choro.

They have been like my familly for a few days and it was difficult to leave them to go towards new adventures…

This experience gave me perspective on environmental aspects in Peru and the unconstable idea that this count, already full of histoary and natural beauties, has even more to give to the rest of the world.

In Vicos, I stayed in a familly in the countryside for 2 days.

Their last child of 7 siblings, Pablo, is very interesting in knowing which great empire we had in France, just like the Incas…

Before heading to Trujillo I met Nora in Trivio Café, she was a French volunteer for a year in Trujillo to teach French at the University… She told me the best would be stay stay at Casa de Clara, and it was true! I organized with Clara a diner with her university’s alumni!

In trujillo I found I would have nothing to do… but actually it happened I had a lot to do! I met Jhonny from Couschsurfing, a young Peruvian fascinated by the power of youtube and internet to spread videos… and at the same time, I met Paul, an ecotourism entrepreneur who started his alternative restaurant and tours… He brought me to unexpected places like the Campesiña of Moche, close to the famous archeological sites of “Huaca del sol y de la luna”.

Isabel and her friend in Monsefu, in front of her tailor shop

Through the help of Leo, a cheerful American Peace corp., I met Isabel, his “host mum” during his 2 years volunteer program. She received me in her house, in the same building as her tailor shop and the showed me how to cook her best dish, aguadito de pescado…

I went to the incredible museum of Tumbas Reales de Sipan… I was sick and fainted in the museum…fortunately, a French girl, Virginie, rescued me. She is travelling all south America thought different volunteering opportunities… Together with her friend Angélique, she worked in a mushroom production farm and warnned me against soya industry in Peru… She writtes a very nice blog in French, relating her experience in South America under the form of tales for children, involving 3 cute puppets… see her last article about the “Mariposario“.

Discovering Peru with People & Food

What is Globe Taster Peru about?

Peru is so much more than the “condor pasa”. Few people actually know the incredible diversity of Peruvian people. Even fewer have heard of the new culinary El Dorado of Peru…

1407_Perou_Bolivie-158

This is why I propose you a travel through peruvian landscapes, meeting people and finding out about their food habits to understand better their culture and way of life.

Cooking from Peru has influenced all of Latin America (Ceviche, Pisco, …) and at the same time Peru has received numerous food influences from the entire world (Japan, Spain, China, …). In the end, peruvian people gathered them all in a healthy, rich and bright cuisine.

Causa Limeña

In my blog, I will give you a taste of Peru with a patchwork of people and food.

You will follow my travel from July 11th until August 19th 2015.

During Q4 2015, I am willing to edit a book of the best stories and recipes I found in Peru for you to keep on travelling in Peruvian lands.

You will find an example of the articles I will write during my travel here: Alfajores de Jeimy and Causas de Chef Timour.

Who am I?

1407_Perou_Bolivie-60

I am a globe-trotter and an insatiable food taster. I have travelled several continents but only my trip to Peru made up my mind to combine these two passions :

I created a culinary blog Globe Taster, 1 travel = 1 encounter = 1 recipe (in French).

Since Peru was the starting point, I decided to write a book about People & Food of Peru : Globe Taster Peru. This blog will update you on my journey while I am meeting people to write that book.

My culinary trip itinerary

My trip will cover Andine mountains, rainforests, seashore, big cities and remote villages.

I will visit city dweller as well as farmers in coffee plantations, potatoes fields, …

I intend to spend time in the three main climatic zones of the country during 2 weeks each: andine mountains, seashore and rainforest.

I will start from Lima (5days) and carry on discovering both coastal and andine food towards North for a week (Huaraz, Chavin de huantar, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Cajamarca…). Dishes will mainly be based on seafishes and sellfishes on the seashore while mountainous area will give more cereals, meat and vegetables specialties.

I will then head to Tarapoto and Iquitos to spend a bit more than one week in the rainforest region where the only transportation is boat… The is nearly no option for food than local products so dishes will be mainly based on exotic fruits and river fishes… I look forward to steamed dishes and plantains…

Coming back to Lima, I will travel directly to Cusco region to know more about agriculture of supercereals like quinoa or maca. On the road I will stop at Ayacucho and Ollantaytambo.

If time is not too short, I will head to Puerto Maldonado, another part of amazon rainforest.

After enjoying fresh air in the maintain, I will go south to Arequipa, one of the finest cities in terms of food…

I will finish my journey with Nazca / Ica / Pisco region before going back to Lima for a few days.
