My name is Marita Lynn, I am a Peruvian Chef, Mom and Entrepreneur that loves to share my passion of food with everyone. Since I moved to the U.S. in 1991, my passion has always been to show people the wonders of my cuisine and flavors.
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. After school and working for a while in different restaurants, I started my own catering business and then my own restaurant and added a Peruvian touch to the dishes I would prepare. I remember my clients loving my sazon – a term which I’ll talk about in a future post – and I always made the point that the dishes I make are everyday dishes in Peru. I always have talked to everyone I know 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, “My Kitchen Intuition” 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 as well as all the stories behind my culinary background and my life journey. I hope you enjoy!
