Author Katie Choy and her mother-in-law Consuelo Aragón de Choy
Katie choy is admittedly not a chef, nor even Peruvian, but as she grew from a newlywed gringa, experiencing the extraordinary flavors of Peruvian cuisine for the first time, to a mother of three scrambling to make dinner every night for her family, she realized she couldn't let these amazing recipes pass into obscurity.
