Sighing with a dessert


During my trip to Peru I attended a cooking class with the intention of writing one of my three articles. Not only did I take pictures and videos, I also learned about the Peruvian cuisine and its history .

Desserts have always been my weakness and the dessert Lima Sigh of Lima is one of biggest weaknesses. A literal translation of the name is “Limean (from Lima) woman’s Sigh.” Like Limean I sighed, I had not eaten half the cake and it was already sweetened. I can’t deny that this eventually became my favorite place in Peru .
I also learned how to make it. Want to sigh like I did?
