To share a resource (such as food ) is to make joint use of our countries culture’s and customs;
Many cultures have a recognizable cuisine, a specific set of cooking traditions using various spices
or a combination of flavors unique to that culture that evolves over time.

Other differences include preferences (hot or cold, spicy etc.), and practices, the study of which is known as gastronomy.
Many cultures have diversified their foods by means of preparation, cooking methods and manufacturing.

This also includes a complex food trade which helps the cultures to economically survive by-way-of food, not just by consumption.
Some popular types of ethnic foods include Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese, American, Cajun, Thai and Indian.
Various cultures throughout the world study the dietary analysis of food habits.

While evolutionarily speaking, as opposed to culturally, humans are omnivores,
religion and social constructs such as morality, activism or environmentalism will often affect which foods they will consume.
Food is eaten and typically enjoyed through the sense of taste, the perception of flavor from eating and drinking.
Certain tastes are more enjoyable for evolutionary purposes while others are not.

All ingredients should be used on a personal preference!
Feel free to use as much or as little as you like and add or omit any ingredients to your liking.

  1- cup mayonnaise (mayonesa)
     Salt and pepper to taste (Sal I pimienta al gusto)

In blender add: Peruvian yellow pepper seeded and chopped, vegetable oil, lime juice blend until it looks like a pesto consistency.

Peel and Boil the potatoes in salted water when tender mash while still hot (enough to handle). LET cool and mix thoroughly with the ají Amarillo sauce Salt to taste.

Mix the shredded chicken with the chopped onions and mayonnaise.

Place a layer of the potato on a serving dish, and spread with a thin film of mayonnaise.
Spread a second layer of the chicken salad.
Cover with a last layer of potatoes, (optional- decorate with slices of onions marinated in lime salt and pepper or boiled eggs and black olives)

Tip: try variations of the filling using (instead of chicken) tuna,crab-meat, shrimps, octopus in olive, or (for vegetarians) plain tomato slices.
