One of the first things I was taught in school about Peru's geography was the beauty of its three main geographical areas; the coast, the mountains and the jungle; la costa, la sierra y la selva. Here you can find many treasures that are blessed with a wide variety of climates and soils to grow many ingredients.
Lomo Saltado is one of Peru's most loved dishes. Every household in Peru makes it and so do many restaurants. Every mum and aunt in Peru has their own recipe which differs from each other. Some make it with red wine instead of vinegar, others add beer, but like all our dishes, its all about great ingredients and flavours.
I have a great respect and appreciation bought about by my ancestral indigenous heritage which worshipped Mother Earth: Pacha Mama. As a cook and restaurateur, Mother Earth is tied to my life like the most fulfilling umbilical cord, supplying me with the most beautiful produce and ingredients which help me live, work and feed others.
