Andrea's dad, Pepe, recently opened a restaurant in the Black Forest in Germany called Colibri. It is mainly a traditional Peruvian restaurant, but it also serves some German dishes. Pepe says: "I will serve them a bit of German food until they learn to love Peruvian cuisine.”
The name Colibri comes from the Nazca lines in Peru. One of them is called Colibri because it resembles the bird. It was actually a German woman named Maria Reich who discovered the lines. Thus, the name is a fusion between Peruvian and German, just like the concept of the restaurant.
Last November Pepe was here with us cooking at Smalhans. We made Ají de Gallina and Suspiro a la Limeña. Last week he surprised us with loads of traditional Peruvian dishes. We made some pictures to show you how food from the Peruvian coast looks like. Believe us, they taste even better than they look!
In the next days we will be making Arroz Con Pato. Which other of these recipes would you like us to post on the blog? Drop us a comment below.
