In Katie Choy’s new book, Family Secrets, Experience the Flavors of Peru, Katie takes you on a journey into the world of Peruvian-Chinese food through the fusion of Incan and Cantonese flavors. Katie is a very good friend to us here at South Florida Food and Wine, and we’re delighted to see her book publishing dream finally come to fruition. I personally gave a quote for Katie’s book, “Katie Choy spills the family secrets of authentic Peruvian-Chinese Cuisine; a must have book for every food and lifestyle enthusiast looking to add more flavor, and fun to their daily meals. The compilation of Katie’s Tips for Success, historical notes, and culinary facts throughout the book define what it means to be a true culinary artisan, and this comes shining through in each and every one of the recipes.” Quite frankly that about sums up her book so if you haven’t tried Peruvian food yet, you’re in for a unique treat. This blend of Peruvian and Chinese flavors, hits your taste buds full force. The spices will wake you up and make your taste buds come alive: the preparation methods are amazingly simple in most cases.
Author Katie Choy take you step-by-step through more than 50 authentic recipes, from easy, everyday meals to elaborate dinners. Family Secrets is far more than a cookbook; it is a celebration of family mealtime. These meals are not only meant to be eaten together, but created together. Family Secrets was inspired by her Mother-in-law, Consuelo Aragón de Choy, Katie shares her stories, insights, and enthusiasm for Peru and it’s unique blend of food and cultures. A portion of the proceeds from book sales will benefit the Peruvian American Medical Society. You can purchase Katie’s book at KatieChoy.com
