until chilean or ecuadorean cuisine take off, that is.
If I may kill the buzz once again...
It kind of annoys me how Peruvian food is marketed as "a mix from around the world". Japanese this, Spanish that, African the other. Nothing is genuinely Peruvian.
I hardly ever hear of the Arabic, North African, Middle Eastern or Asian influence in, say, Italian food. No, Italian food is from Italy. But Peruvian food is just a copy of Asian, European and African foods.
Peruvian food is the Ellis Island of cuisines. Fuk that.
Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru have the same culture, foods, people (wheter we like it or not).
Chile doesnt exist in the culinary world see the video where A.Bourdain tastes "their" Pisco Sour, its a cheap imitation (Chile mucho gusto)
thats 'cause they market the ceviches and tiraditos (as Japanese's sashimis) Tallarin Verde (as Italian pesto), lomo saltado (as Chinese). You haven't seen in one of these trendy restaurants Cau-Cau, Carapulcra, Cuy Chactado, not even pachamanca.
hasn't it been the next big thing for the past five to seven years though?
thankfully, marketing hasn't been THE key factor.
It sure seems like it, I even heard of tons of Peruvian chefs going to Europe to showcase their stuff because of the demand.
Yeah, but as far as I know, ceviche has nothing to do with sashimi and not influenced by Japanese food at all. It was invented by Peruvian fishermen. But since the Japanese also happen to have a dish made with raw fish, we associate the two.
Spaghetti is uber-Italian but noodles come from China and tomatoes from the Americas. But of course spaghetti in never described as an imitation of Chinese lo mein with American tomatoes.
Maybe one day Peruvian culture will have the prestige to stand on its own without having to point out how it is influenced by all these other countries.
Bueno, en Brasil ya están picones:
Periodista de Folha desdeña auge de gastronomía peruana
Todo la nota aquí:
Pisco has been the next big spirit for a few years now, also.
We only get this in Ohio.

Dude looks just like my dad. haha
Went to a wedding in North West CT on Saturday so me and the girl decided to go to NY for a day trip on Sunday w/o realizing it was 9/11/11. But since we were in NW CT we went to Manhattan thru upstate NY so we hit no traffic and it was business as usual, maybe more cops around Broadway.
Anyway, I took her to Pio Pio on 1st Ave and it was whack! I was hyping up Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken the whole way there and I was disappointed, she said she liked it but I thought there was something missing.. service sucked ass 2.
the one in queenz was the move, yo.
in any case, whether we look at its marketing as a sham or not, cuisine does stimulate tourism and economies, believe it or not.
and i think the growing awareness of Peru's kitchen over the past 2, 5 or 8 years has played somewhat of a part in whatever growth it's brought to the country.
BTW, i've also noticed more and more peruvian restaurants around NY and NJ are now actually being run by---------peruvians.
aside from a pakistani-run pizza joint with some peruvian food (think in wash. heights) and a fukin' half-mexican, half-peruvian restaurant in central NJ owned by mexicans, i remember a shit joint in the West Village called Cocina Cuzco or something.....run by argentines.
Que no jodan los brazucas esos. No pasa nada con su comida. Tienen 200 millones de personas asi que han tenido y tienen cualquier cantidad de oportunidades para hacer famosa su comida si fuese buena.
Pero no la es, pues. Su musica, su futbol, su carnaval, si. Su comida, no.
Y creo que esa es una de las indicaciones mas grandes de que la comida peruana es excelente por si misma y no por marketing.
No es casualidad que las "grandes cocinas" toditas provienen de paises con muchisima mas gente, mas plata e influencia en la cultura mundial que el Peru. Francia, Italia, China, Espana, Mexico, India, Japon. Todos son gigantes.
Que un pais comparativamente chiquito y pobrecito como Peru este ganando tanto reconocimiento es por la calidad, no por propaganda. Si no tenemos quien nos haga propaganda!
So what's the verdict on Acurio's new joint in NY??
meh. while the cuisine is getting trendy all over the NY area, there are some good reviews along with some bad ones out there.
that bloomberg dude is a pompous little twat.
i passed by some fancy-ass sushi joint on 7th (i wanna say around 23rd) and just noticed that they put up peruvian flags outside. wasn't there before.
My favorite part:
"What are all these foreign phrases doing here? Do Peruvians name their food in Spanish or something?"
What a dumb fuk.
Lou, did you miss this?
We should all meet up at a decided peruvian joint and tell them we are food critics from bigsoccer.com peru forums and order everything on the menu....
<insert the biggest plop pic you can find>
I'd rather we all pretended to be beer critics
Oh yeah, Latin Bites is cleaning up here. Won a shitload of awards. The first "real" Peruvian restaurant in Houston.
I've known Roberto for a few years, too. Played ball with him a couple of times (Cristal fan ) Real cool guy.
went on a short weekend vaca to Orlando this past weekend and the girl wanted to try out some Peruvian food down there so we searched on google and the closest one to downtown was a spot called Pio Pio. So we went and that shit was horrible. I knew something was wrong when they gave us the menu and it said Colombian/Peruvian restaurant. I don't trust restaurants that served more than one nationality of dishes. Spices were all wrong, only a few dishes were Peruvian and they had an "italian" side with Pasta Alfredo and other shit like that. Disaster!
