Peruvian chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino of Malabar has a passion for wild Amazonian produce. Here, “blini and caviar” means pancakes made of native breadfruit, a “sour cream” of tart chestnut-and-milk purée, and glistening yellow roe bubbles of carachama, an Amazonian armored catfish normally seen at exotic aquariums. The culinary trompe l’oeil tastes both familiar and utterly new.
