Join local chef Nico Vera for a night of class Peruvian cuisine. Chef Vera will be preparing Seco De Cordero (Peruvian Lamb Stew). In Peru, a seco is a stew whose ingredients vary by region and my all-time favorite one is the lamb stew or Seco de Cordero. Slow cooked in a cilantro sauce, it is hearty, savory, and a little spicy — perfect for the upcoming Fall season. As always, there will be music to set the mood.
The recipe Chef Vera is using is based on his mom's, with techniques and ingredients from recipes by Gaston Acurio and Tony Custer. The three basic steps are: browning the lamb, sautéing the sofrito, and slow cooking the lamb in the cilantro sauce.
