Fighting Cancer With Yellow

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    I’ve been making a version of this dish a lot lately, and I find that blanching the olives in boiling water for a minute helps to remove some of the bitterness, leaving behind the wonderful flavor of the olives but not of the brine.

    Thanks for such a heartfelt story Gretchen. I think we are all touched by this disease in one way or another. Thaks also for the recipe. I think the chicken tagine is something I could even add my preserved lemons to for extra lemony flavour:D
