La Cocina de América Latina!

My cookbook is out!

This is my cookbook La Cocina de America Latina. I made it after studying in Chile and travelling around in some countries of South America, and it's a colorful and very personal collection with delicious recipes I tried down there, lots of drawings of whatever crossed my way, and stories that happened throughout my journey. It's about indian girls not knowing what to do with tictacs, german bakeries in the paraguayan nowhere, bolivian busdrivers that get hungry in the middle of the road and tells why the most popular drink in chile is named after a colt.

Llama indicating the "peruvian chapter".

This page shows a bolivian kid drinking the soup from the recipe of the opposite page: Chairo, a typical highlands bolivian soup with vegetables and meat that I first ate some thousands meters above sea level.


A story about the magical & colorful carnival in Potosí, one of the highest towns in the world, known in the past for its immense wealth thanks to its silver mines.


Eucalipto – a story about a strange incident of passing a branch of eucalyptus from one person to another in Cuzco, Peru.

This is a recipe for Suspiro Limeño, a delicious peruvian dessert made of caramel. Its name means "Lima's sigh" and was named so by the husband of the creator of the recipe, the poet José Galvez, because it is as sweet and light as the sigh of a woman.
