THE FOOD SEEN 072418: Llama Inn with Erik Ramirez
On today's episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Erik Ramirez grew up in New Jersey with his Peruvian-Japanese grandmother.

There's a long history behind Nikkei cuisine, a proverbial bridge blending Peruvian ingredients and Japanese techniques, which sees ceviche in a similar vein to sashimi, anticuchos (grilled skewers) akin to yakitori.
