La Quinua: Alimento de las Culturas Andinas, one of the best cookbooks in the world

A new cookbook about quinoa, our mighty seed, has been published. The author, famous historian and writer Sara Beatriz Guardia, writes about the history of quinoa, and how this crop was kept in the shadows and almost forgotten for three centuries, only to be reborn with a bang and become a huge success around the world. It´s a miraculous tale of nature’s survival and strength.

I´m honored to be a part of this amazing book, as Sara Beatriz, one of my favorite authors, kindly invited me to share a recipe with her. My colorful quinoa pilaf is amongst the 27 recipes created by famous chefs from Peru and many other countries, and I couldn´t be more excited and grateful.

This beautiful book has been nominated  by the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbooks Awards as Best Single Subject Book, and the ceremony will be held in May, in the city of Beijing. I´ll keep you posted about the ceremony.

Sara Beatriz Guardia is also the author of these award winner cookbooks:
