About Peruvian Power Food Book:

In 2012, Villacorta set out on a cross-country adventure to discover the origins of, and best uses for some the most potent foods on the planet—Peruvian superfoods.  Armed with the latest scientific research and a hearty appetite, he traveled from the fertile farmlands of the Andes, to the depths of the Amazonian jungle to explore these foods.  Along the way, he visited open markets, restaurants, humble food stands, and family kitchens, stopping to gather stories and recipes of local chefs, food bloggers, farmers, fishermen and abuelitas. 


Peruvian Power Foods introduces 18 incredible edibles along with their anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, detoxifying, immunity-boosting and disease-fighting health benefits.  While it is a collection of recipes, it is also a tribute to Peruvian culture as well as health and wellness.  This book showcases 101 recipes, ranging from simple smoothies, snacks and salads, to hearty entrees and irresistible deserts.  Manuel’s recipes are great for all skill levels and cater not only to omnivores, but also those who are vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free.

About Chicha Bistro


Chicha a Peruvian Contemporary Bistro is located in the beautiful island of Alameda.
Peruvian cuisine draws from an ancient cultural history of trade and native tradition based on ingredients and customs spanning vastly contrasting geographical zones - the Pacific Coast, the Andes Mountains, and the Amazon Jungle.  Marked by a variety, complexity, and sophistication of its dishes dating back to the Spanish conquest of Peru during the early 16th century, Peruvian cuisine is one of the world's original fusion cuisines, combining Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, African, Italian, and French cuisine with native Inca culinary traditions.  It is our goal at Chicha to bring a taste of authentic Peruvian cuisine  and Pisco drinks to our beautiful  Bay Area.
