Thursday, January 04, Peru Food Books. My visit to Lima coincided with the 27th edition of olibas annual book fair, the Feria del Libro Ricardo Palma.

La cocina de los incas : costumbres gastronómicas y técnicas culinarias

The fair is held in late November and early December. This year’s edition attracted overvisitors, according to the Camara Peruana del Librothe Peruvian Book Association, organizers of the event. Being an avid reader, I always purchase books when I travel in Latin America, and this time was no exception.

In fact, I visited the Book Fair every day leaving with one or two purchases each time.

A month later, when it was time to pack to come home, I discovered I had bought over 30 ,os Since they weighed so much, I couldn’t put them in my luggage and had to hand-carry most of them on the plane. No sacrifice is too great for a good book, and I am happy to report that some of the volumes had to do with Peruvian cuisine.

There was a plethora of books loss Peruvian cooking on sale, in Spanish as well as in English.


I could still be buying books today, rpsario not have all the available titles. However, the ones I did purchase will be making appearances on this blog in future posts.

In the meantime, allow me to list the titles: De Tamales y Tamaleros: Tres Historias de Vida Tamales and Tamaleros: At the doorway of almost every bakery in Peru is the ubiquitous tamalerothe tamale vendor.

The tamalero is an independent agent, preparing tamales at home, and carrying them in large reed baskets to sell outside of bakeries throughout Peru. This book looks into the lives of three tamaleros who tell their stories and how they became tamalerosand what their relationship is cocinz this very traditional food. La Cocina de los Incas: Gastronomic Customs and Techniquesby historian Rosario Olivas Weston and also published by USMPis a thin volume that takes a careful and detailed look into the cooking techniques used by the Incas, their dishes, the role food played in Inca culture, and its legacy in contemporary Peruvian cuisine.

I was fortunate to interview Dr. Olivas Weston, who told me this book is intended to be a manual of the Inca kitchen.

My conversation with Dr.

Olivas Weston lks be posted at a later date. Finally, the book looks at all aspects of cuisine during the Viceregal period, including tools, customs, dishes, and recipes. De la Mar y la Mesa: The late Alcalde Mongrut was a journalist who, using the pseudonym El Compadre Guisao or The Cooking Buddy, wrote fosario series of humorous essays peppered with very traditional Lima characters and slang about Peruvian cuisine.

He also included classic recipes.

This book is a compilation of those essays. The dictionary covers the description and origins of traditional dishes; as well as, descriptions and uses of food products.

I have a feeling I will be referring to this volume often in inczs I sometimes get e-mails from people interested in the history of a dish, and this volume is destined to be a great help.

It is one of a ten-volume cookbook published by the leading newspaper in Peru, El Comercio. I was told the ten volumes had been available in early- and mid, so I was only able to get this one title, but it has great recipes for different types of anticuchos they aren’t all made of beef heart any more!

Each volume has photos, recipes, and history.
