Internationally renowned Peruvian chef Gaston Acurio was recently quoted as saying, “Ají amarillo would be enough to set up a Peruvian restaurant anywhere on the planet.” Of course, we’ve known for years that authentic Peruvian food can be made anywhere with the right ingredients. Aji amarillo is a native Peruvian yellow chile pepper, and although it is not available fresh in the US, imported aji amarillo pastes like Mama Tina’s allow Peruvian restaurants in America to provide the authentic taste that makes Peruvian food so unique and wonderful. Acurio’s quote comes from the OnMadrid newspaper section in a major Spanish newspaper that was recently devoted to praising Peruvian food and its growing popularity around the world. The article also discusses ceviche, predicting that it will follow dishes like pasta, tacos and sushi to become an internationalized dish. We’re proud to see Peruvian food recognized in major newspapers around the globe, and love to educate our customers about this wonderful cuisine.
