Thanks for the recipe links.
What observations did you come back with about economic conditions in Peru. One of my friends lives/works there, but after the company was bought up by the Chinese late last year (a natural resource type company), he went incommunicado........ It's all very odd for him. I used to like hearing his quick observations on the economy down there as it would balance our "filtered" media here.

Returned last night from a working trip to Peru. While there,
watched adobe bricks being made, one of my passions -- similar
process to everywhere else I have seen them made. Also, visited some
small and large farms. They grow many more varieties of corn,
squash, and potatoes than we see in the U.S.
I also sampled Pisco, the national drink of Peru, and chicha, a mild
fermented drink made from potatoes, and ate a lot of wonderful
Peruvian food, but not qui, or guinea pig. I ate qui last year while
there, so can say I did it, but chose not to this trip. While it is
not much different from eating rabbit, it is too much like eating one
of the childrens' pets.
I have been going through emails today and read the discussions by
some of you on squash. Had this email from Martha Stewart which
includes zucchini and cucumber recipes, which you may find
useful. Some of the zucchini recipes may be adapted for other kinds
of squash, but I'm not sure. Eating them is my talent, not cooking them.
