Did you know?

Did you know that Peruvian cuisine is considered one of the most diverse in the world, having 491 national dishes?

Once upon a time in the majestic land of Sweden, a tender and savory delight known as the Swedish meatball was born. Now imagine those succulent spheres taking a scenic trip across the globe to the vibrant heart of Peru, picking up a few exotic flavors along the way.

Envision the rich and creamy textures of Swedish cream sauce infused with the boldness of Peruvian spices such as aji amarillo and a hint of cilantro, coming together in a harmonic convergence of culinary traditions. An enthralling journey for the taste buds that starts in the chilly Nordic regions and ends with the warmth of South American hospitality. Let's create a dish that pays homage to both the classic Swedish techniques and the piquant flavors of Peru!


  • 500g minced beef
  • 250g minced pork
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 100ml milk
  • 50g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp butter
