Chupe

As usual, preparing tomorrow’s lecture on Peru caused me to develop an uncontrollable desire for a chupe de mariscos. So I ditched work and ran off to the grocery store.

I’ve been indexing since 8 am. I deserve a cooking vacation.

Once, we had a lot of leftovers so I didn’t cook after work.

“Are you OK, Mommy?” Klara asked. “Are you unwell? Why aren’t you cooking?”

    I assume this was before any pandemic happened, N wasn’t there, and she doesn’t know where you keep the thermometer and Q-tips. 😂😂😂😂

    1. “does that mean sucky shellfish?”

      I think chupa would be the form there…. a quick trip to wikipedia suggests it’s a word used for thick soups in a number of (mostly) south American countries, maybe the name comes from an indigenous language?

      1. I guess it’s something like seafood chowder? My Columbian friend made this once, or something sounding like that. It was very good. Though I really like seafood so don’t take my word for it.

        1. It’s more of a seafood stew than soup. There’s a recipe somewhere around here on the blog!

          I did make it and now I have an extremely happy husband running around the house, creating little poems dedicated to the dish.
