Historical Review: When I was studying to be a professional kitchen, my mentor and Chef Culinary Studies Center (CEGA) was Victor Moreno. Last Christmas, I was able to remember my student days when my son’s girlfriend Jefferson, Mary, invited us to dinner to celebrate the birthday of her mother, Mrs. Rosa Cancino. They are Peruvian, so that day we tasted the traditional Chicken Stuffed Cause, a typical dish in Peru. This week I offer the same recipe, but this time filled with tuna. The cause is one of the traditional dishes of the cuisine that comes from the Quechua Kausaya a , it tastes nice and one of the most successful in the world, there are different ways to prepare it, being the main ingredient the yellow potato.
