The Pioneers of Peralillo | Culture: the word on cheese

“The village of Peralillo in Chile’s verdant Valle Central has so few buildings that you might miss it driving past at even moderate speed. Yet on the strength of a novel bonding of Chilean wine with queso fresco (fresh farmer’s cheese), a dozen pioneering women here have put Peralillo dead center on Chile’s map of culinary innovations.

They had inspiration: It was less than 30 years ago that Chilean wines were a rarity on the international market. Today dozens of Chilean vintages with excellent reputations are exported to 90 countries on five continents, and eight out of every ten grapes we consume in the United States were harvested there as well. So why not expect the same daring success with cheese?”

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
