Six years prior, we sold our home to begin Ceviche in Soho and moved to this rental. We cherish it more than some other house we’ve ever lived in. It’s 100m from our children’s schools, and the kitchen is precisely the style we like: the high roofs, the photo rails, the old wooden floors also, that stove!
It helps me to remember the open chimneys I utilized for cooking in the Andes. It’s a coal and woodburning stove, which you can warm things over.
I go to Peru a few times each year to investigate formulas and meet culinary experts, and I bring back many things. This part of cook’s garments on the divider is a small amount of my accumulation. Over my head is an amulet – an Andean lucky trinket that you put in your auto or room.
And the hand-painted wicker bin to one side is from the Huancayo area, given to me by a woman who runs an eatery called La Tulpa. She showed me how to make an excellent your potato soup.
