The Chilean Kitchen
Bookplate-signed copies now available!
These authentic recipes will bring classic Chilean flavors to your doorstep!
The Spanish phrase quédate un poquito, or “stay a while,” is the essence of Chilean hospitality—one does not “stop by for a quick bite” in Chile. Comprised of more than seventy authentic Chilean recipes, organized seasonally for maximum freshness, and tweaked ever-so-slightly to fit neatly into the US market, this book creates an accessible, authentic, and uniquely Chilean cooking experience. It marries Pilar’s family recipes and Eileen’s astute writings, which make even those who have never visited Chile feel like they have found home.
Seasonality is the backbone of the Chilean table—each of the four seasonal sections will include a short opening essay to prepare the reader for the bounty of the season. A unique fifth section is included for La Once, or tea time, which transcends the seasons but is quintessentially and irrevocably Chilean.
Mouthwatering recipes will include:
Caramelized onion empanadas
Double crusted spinach pie
Grilled steak soup
Pickled chicken thighs
Spicy pork ribs
Tomato shrimp stew
Dulce de leche thousand layer cake
Chilean white sangria
So many more!
