This Peruvian dish has a culinary tradition that goes back thousands of years, consists on cooking, over preheated stones, beef, pork, chicken, previously macerated with spices, as well as additional it will be served with potatoes, sweet potatoes and other vegetables.
This dish is a ritual that pays tribute to the Earth’s fertility and it is a way of honoring the pachamama “Mother Earth”. The message behind the “Pachamanca” is the importance of the connection with the earth and nature and celebrating the elements of Earth.
Pachamanca is a word from the Quechua language that means “pot on earth” or “when the earth becomes a pot”. In principle, the cooking technique entails cooking food on heated stones.
We will be preparing this dish in the closest way as it is prepared in Peru We will show how a “huatia” is used for pre heating the stones and the way of cooking.
