what Chileans eat

During a discussion about trying to find a high-end pisco, Steve pointed me to this blog, Eating Chilean. There's a particularly fine post called "What Chileans Eat." He also did the research on the pepino I ate, a funky-looking striped fruit with the exact taste, color, and texture of cantaloupe (though he and his texts say honeydew, which is completely different, but whatever).

I'm not sure of the author's complete story: it sounds like he got divorced and retired from being a professor, moved to Chile, married a Chilean and started another family. Either way, he's enthusiastic enough to read historical primary sources about Chilean food, which is doubly interesting if you read Spanish. Anyway, check it out.
