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?
1 can of condensed milk
1 can of evaporated milk big
1 cinnamon stick
5 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 cup White sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup sweet wine (optional )
In a saucepan add the milk and cinnamon stick, stir until a thick blancmange is formed.
Off the heat, add 5 egg yolks, and vanilla. serve it in individual cups warm ( halfway) .
