  Fall is around the corner. This is my favorite season by far: gentle weather, cute clothes, and pumpkins; everything is great.

We ate like if there was no tomorrow. Ceviches entreés, tiraditos in yellow ají sauce, sushi, fry ceviche and multiple pisco...

Freshness and sweetness in one dish! I like to eat fish at least one time during the week. Most of the time, salmon is my favorite choice for a simple reason: it has enough flavor by itself. You can cook a salmon fillet with a pinch of salt and pepper and it would taste good. Besides, it matches with a wide variety of veggies. This time I made a sweet glaze with honey and the spicy and strong flavor of...

Black Beer Caramelized Onions

  Black beer caramelized onions are my favorite topping for my meat hamburgers.  I never need mayo or ketchup when I make this beautiful topping. It is sweet but just in the right point. After all, the black beer helps to make the flavor deep and prevent an over sweet finish. Also, it is so simple and goes so well with the meat. And if you add some bacon to your hamburger…well… it’s simply heaven.       Every time...
