Just a quick note to say Happy Mother’s Day to all those strong, smart, loving, amazing women a.k.a. mums.
Special thanks to the two women who influenced me the most when it comes to food and cooking: my mum and her mum. I will never forget watching Peruvian celebrity chef Teresa Ocampo on the TV with my grandma. She also taught me how to make pancakes and how to love offal, thanks to her superb cooking skills. She passed away when I was 9.
Mum inspired my interest in trying new recipes and eating out. She is a wonderful and consistent cook, even though she never measures ingredients. I have adapted some of her recipes and published them on the blog (see below). Needless to say, they taste better when mum makes them.
- Mum’s burgers
- Estofado de pollo (chicken stew)
- Atún playero (beach tuna)
- My mum’s sweet and sour meatballs with a twist
- My mum’s roast chicken and mash with a twist
I’m glad this year my mum will spend Mother’s Day with 2 out of her 3 daughters. Wish I was there, too.
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
