Recipe: The Definitive Papa a la Huancaína

For those of you who don't know, César and Sury are good friends who share a passion for cooking.

There's only one problem: César lives in Lima, while Sury lives in Delhi.

Thanks to technology, the distance has been gulfed by the creation of one of my favorite food blogs: (Lima) Beans and Delhi Cha(a)t.

On their blog, Sury and César write about two of the world's greatest cuisines: Indian and Peruvian. They provide pictures and recipes, interspersed with commentary about their respective cultures and cuisines.

As they say, their blog is about, 'All things FOOD from Peru and India.'

In my opinion, it doesn't get much better than that.

Recently, César posted the mother of all recipes for papa a la huancaí­na. This dish of potatoes in a creamy, spicy sauce, is a standard of Peruvian fare.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I also posted a compilation of papa a la huancaí­na recipes I had found on the internet; but, I knew that César was going to be posting his own recipe shortly. I couldn't wait. Now, it's up at his blog, and it is one the best recipes for papa a la huancaí­na I have found.

I hope you visit Sury and César's blog for your viewing and hopefully, tasting pleasure.
