The Exotic Kitchens of Peru - The Land of the Inca


by Copeland Marks, M. Evans & Co., 1999. Sadly out of print. One of the few cookbooks in English exploring this country's cuisine, basically a cross-fertilization of the foods of Spanish conquerors and the indigenous Inca tribes. African, Chinese, Japanese and Italian immigrants added to the mix that developed into what the author calls "the celebrated 'criolla' or Creole style of cooking, in natural pottery pots over wood fires...." The main carbohydrate foods are quinoa, corn, rice and potatoes, 'aji' or peppers, along with the sea and fresh water seafood and wild and domesticated game.

Marks, who died in 2000, is considered one of the prominent modern-era culinary explorers of exotic cuisines. His landmark "The Exotic Kitchen of Indonesia," "The Burmese Kitchen" and "The Guatemalan Kitchen" are also listed on this site.
