The Vegan Peruvian Kitchen (Cookbook)

The Vegan Peruvian Kitchen

Plant-based Recipes Inspired by Peru’s Multicultural Heritage

My goal for 2021 is to find a publisher for The Vegan Peruvian Kitchen, a cookbook I am developing. I have a proposal, promotion plan, and sample recipes.

The Vegan Peruvian Kitchen will be the first cookbook to feature 100 plant-based recipes inspired by Peru’s traditional (non-vegan) dishes from the Coast, Andes Mountains, and Amazon Jungle. It’s aimed at home cooks interested in world cuisines.

My recipes are inspired by Peru’s comida criolla—a 500-year fusion of Inca, Spanish, African, Chinese, and Japanese culinary cultures. The cookbook will include cocktails, small bites, ceviches, escabeches, soups, stews, sides, and desserts.

Born in Peru, I learned to cook traditional dishes from my mom. I am intimately familiar with all the techniques, flavors, and spices of Peruvian food. Now, as a vegan, my mission is to make Peruvian cuisine accessible to vegan home cooks.
