As you’ve probaly guessed by the number of chicken dishes in my novel ‘Love & the Goddess’, chicken is extremely popular in South America. This rich dish is suitable for a special occasion and is wonderful accompanied by a glass of full bodied red wine. I love to serve a fresh green salad with it ,or maybe some string beans for contrast.See the Full Recipe
Aji de Gallina is a traditional Peruvian classic served with thin strips of chicken served with a creamy yellow and spicy sauce, made basically with aji Amarillo (yellow peppers), cheese, milk, bread, and walnuts. This appears on page 195 of my novel ‘Love & the Goddess’, as the characters Kate, James and Maria eat in a local restaurant in the centre of Cusco. See also my recipe for Suspiro de Limena; – it appears under the dessert category.See the Full Recipe
This is a Peruvian recipe featured on page 208 of my novel Love & the Goddess. Chicken dishes are popular in Peru and this is quite an exotic concoction. The characters (Kate, James, Maria and the shaman Raul) are eating at a restaurant in the little town of Aguas Calientes after their exhilarating visit to Machu Picchu.
In the story James offers Kate a mouthful and asks her to guess what key ingredients are contained in the dish. There’s no guessing here but there’s quite a lot of foodstuff to gather together in advance. I hope you enjoy tasting the sweet tangy flavour of Aquas Calientas in this mouth watering dish.
My lasagne uses less pasta than normal and replaces full milk with low fat milk… hence it is considerably lower in calories and has a higher protein lower glycemic index.See the Full Recipe
