Kicking Up Grandma’s Recipes – A Peruvian Adventure with chef Olenka
Delight your palate and surround yourself with the exciting, colorful, and exotic food of
Peru. A product of 500 years of fusion of Chinese, Japanese, African, Spanish and Inca
cultures, Peruvian cuisine is filled with rich flavors, aromas, and stories. Interesting eh?
Yes, these will be the dishes we prepare. It goes beyond simple—without having to be
super elaborate. It’s just a matter of smart seasoning and a touch from the heart and
soul! To make this experience “happier,” we will prepare and taste regional dishes with
distinctive sauces, starters, entrees and dessert to enrich and “kick up” your traditional
kitchen. You will learn to incorporate the spark of Peruvian Latin cuisine, filled with
flavor and originality, into your everyday meals.
I will show you how to create the following classic dishes from Peru:
¸ Solterito de choclo y habas – a delicious fresh salad with corn and fava beans and
¸ Quinua Guisada – a flavorful Quinoa Stew and chicken breast.
¸ Arroz Blanco – a super-secret White rice recipe
¸ Mousse de Lucuma – a dessert made with a delicious Peruvian Lucuma fruit and
