Chilean Food: A Collection of Chilean Recipes

Traditional and Contemporary Chilean Cuisine

Chile has a distinctive cuisine.  Both European and indigenous traditions have prominently influenced modern Chilean food.  Chile is known for its fantastic seafood, grilled meats (think Patagonia), stews and pasteles, empanadas, corn, beans, potatoes, exotic tropical fruit (lucuma and chirimoya), pisco, and excellent wines.

To a casual observer, Chilean food might seem similar to Peruvian food.  Though the two countries do share similar growing climates and geography, Chilean cuisine has...MORE evolved separately and is quite unique. Peruvian food may enjoy a certain trendiness right now, but Chilean cuisine has much to offer.
