Blueberry küchen (South of Chile : Villarrica)






<



Other recipe from here on the South, yesterday was a shining day after the rain.

This recipe of kuchen is  with blueberries and the recipe is adapted  from one of  my friend Rosario (a chilean blogger) .
She has an amazing blog  Recetas para todas.blogspot.com

I talked before about küchen history, when about 1800 the germans arrive here on the South and in this time küchen and others meals  begin to be part of Chile cuisine.

Maybe all the cuisines are like this, when arrived the spanish (many years before) they add some things to the meals and the people lived here (mapuche people) had others things, and now we know these food like chilean food, but is all a mix I think we have similars foods with Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and others.

Each country has their own cuisine history and is so good and interesting know about it.

De aquí siguiendo más al sur la tradición de los kuchenes es fuerte, es un legado de los alemanes cuando llegaron a Chile alrededor del 1800.

Porque es impresionante como los küchen se comen casi a lo largo de todo Chile sobre todo al sur.
Crecí en el sur (Concepción) y allá era lo más normal hacer Küchen, con manzanas, peras, duraznos o frutillas, lo que hubiera. Mi mamá cuando quería aprovechar una manzanas decia voy a hacer un küchen.

Cuando llegaron los españoles, había cosas que no tenían idea y las agregaron a otras comidas  que preparaba el pueblo mapuche por ejemplo, todo lo que es con maiz, humitas, pastel de choclo etc.
Incluso hacian el pan con maiz.
Y las frutillas...
Y despues los alemanes con sus recetas que pasaron a ser propias  de nosotros.(aqui se venden kuchenes en todas partes)
pero los mejores kuchenes los he comido más al sur, Puerto Varas, valdivia, Frutillar etc.Ayer comí pastel de choclo y de postre kuchen:)

Esta receta está adaptada de una receta de Küchen de mi amiga Rosario que viven en Viña del Mar, que tiene estupendas recetas y además hace clases de cocina.
Su blog se llama Recetas para Todas y se los recomiendo especialmente.

  35. Gloria, thanks for posting photos - the snow capped volcano over the lake is stunning! One day we must visit my husband's cousins in Chile. It was fascinating to hear how the cultural blend affected your cuisine. Our family is a cultural melting pot too and we eat food from many countries, some our own and others borrowed.

  43. Que buen viaje, esos parajes son tan lindos.
    El sur es tierra de kuchenes, el que hiciste apetitoso a todo dar!
    Como debes haber disfrutados de esos dias. Te cuento, esperaba alguna foto de la cocina a leña. Hasta te imaginaba haciendo fuego, para sacar algun kuchen de ese horno. Así bien de campo sureño.

    Lindo post, aproveché de mirar los dos anteriores, me encantaron la de moras y el pie de pollo. Me gustó la presentación, algún dia me animaré.

    Cariños!
