Welcome to Marita’s Peruvian Cooking

My name is Marita Lynn and I own Catering by Maria, a full service catering company serving New Jersey and the New York metro area. Since I moved to the U.S. in 1991, my passion has always been to show people the wonders of Peruvian cuisine.

Coming from a family of good home cooks, I decided to enroll in culinary school so that I would have a solid foundation for cooking professionally. Once in school, I started to add a Peruvian touch to the dishes I would prepare. I remember my classmates loving my sazon – a term which I’ll talk about in my next post – and I always made the point that the dishes I make are everyday dishes in Peru. Once I graduated and started to work, I would often talk to my fellow chefs with great enthusiasm about Peruvian cuisine and now I’ll be sharing that with you.

I am very excited to bring you my new blog, “Marita’s Peruvian Cooking,” and I can’t wait to share with you recipes, information and personal experiences about my journey from childhood right through today. My intention is to convey the greatness of Peruvian cuisine, its history and regional diversity as well as all the stories behind my culinary background. I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Maragret,

    Thanks for your comments, I used coconut oil all te time and I agree with you about its health benefits, I love it. I suggest expeller pressed canola oil in my recipes because is unflavored and won’t alter the flavor of the meals.

    Coconut oil is largely used as cooking oil also. The reason behind this is that it resists heat-induced damage and it is great for heart health. There are some more reasons also such as it keeps cholesterol level at normal position and also supports weight loss. Coconut oil is the best substitute of butter, olive oil, vegetable oil and margarine. In coconut oil you will find the most saturated fat than any other edible oil.
