It’s likely that with Easter just around the corner, you’ve already made dinner plans that most likely involve pig in some fashion. However, if you’re tired of the hog on a stick with an apple stuffed in its mouth, acclaimed chef and owner Mitsuharu Tsumura of Maido in Lima, Peru, has a different option for you. Drawing upon his heavy Nikkei leanings, as well as some classic Peruvian cooking, Micha, as he’s lovingly known, has come up with a dish that’s as easy to make as it is delicious to eat. Chaufa criolla con chicharron de pejerey might sound complicated, but it’s as easy as fried rice with fried fish. Dress that up with a tangy onion mixture, and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable Sunday dinner. Provecho!

Back in November, the organizers of the Latin America’s 50 Best awards headed to Lima for an edition of their 50 Best Talks, which featured the city’s top chefs including Virgilio Martínez, Gastón Acurio,  and Mitsuharu Tsumura, amongst others. The chefs, writers, and other professionals in the industry spent the day at Gastón Acurio’s flagship Casa Moreyra, discussing how far Peru has come, but also what they as professionals need to do to ensure that the country remains a leader in South American gastronomy. Amidst the discussion, the 50 Best team also managed to sneak in a few words with a few of the chefs about just what being a Peruvian chef means to them.
