So one Saturday evening, the lovely man and I ventured into central Cape Town and started our Peruvian adventure. We were seated in a comfortable booth and started with a beer for him, and a glass of rose for me.
|The Peruvian Platter to start|
|(There were ponchos - I couldn't help myself)|
|My Aji de Gallina (Shredded chicken in a spicy cream sauce, served on boiled potatoes with rice)|
|Luke's Pork Carapulcra (The oldest recipe in Peruvian cuisine and a firm favourite in our Restaurant; It's dried mince potato cooked on a peanut and chili sauce served with rice and a choice of chicken, beef or pork)|
We hadn't planned on dessert - but German encouraged us to have just a taster -so we settled on sharing the Pisco Sour Ice Cream (Home-made Pisco Sour Ice cream served on a cake soaked in Pisco) - and we were so glad we did! The ice cream had the perfect balance between the sweet, tangy alcohol and rich creaminess of the ice cream. The perfect end to the meal.
