Last week I was at the local farmers market searching for fresh ingredients to prepare a solterito arequipeño. The solterito is a cold dish, typically found in Arequipa, a city in southern Peru. It serves as an appetizer and they say that the guests who came single commonly ate this snack to prevent gaining weight and appearing unattractive. One of the main ingredients is the cheese, known as solterito de queso. MORE + LESS -
