  • About

In her fabulous cookbook El Perú y sus Manjares, Jossie Sisson de De la Guerra narrates the story of this silky dessert, crediting the poet José Gálvez with its peculiar name. Apparently, this artist was a romantic even when it came to the food he ate, comparing this pudding to the gentle and sweet sigh of a girl from Lima. Yes, suspiro means “sigh.”
