In an interview with El Comercio, he said that three years ago after returning from Europe, “they told me about the demonstration kitchen at the Expoalimentaria fair. It consists of taking an input and presenting various dishes. I found it an interesting challenge and a way to give something back to a world that has given me so much”.
“I thought it was a challenge to show something different and I started to put it together with other foods. It has a very particular flavor and had a lot of trial and error, but in the end we had good results”, he told El Comercio.
Delfino believes that Peru is the superfood cradle. “We have a huge variety of grains, cereals and more. But you can still exploit much more, we are not giving it all the importance it really deserves. Especially inwards, towards Peruvians. In a country with so much quinoa we should not have malnutrition, for example”, he said.
