Discover Chile's delicious dishes with a new app!

100 of Chile's top national dishes and recipes are now downloadable in an app

You can now access traditional recipes for Chile's top national dishes from your cell phone with a new app launched last week. 'Recetas de Chile' is a project by Imagen de Chile to promote Chilean cuisine around the world with a handy food and recipe guide, freely downloadable to your smart phone.

Recipes include well known national dishes like charquicán (a beef stew), pastel de choclo (beef and corn Shepherd's Pie), and a host of sandwiches which are a popular staple in Chile. For those with a sweet tooth you'll also learn how to cook leche asada (a sweet milk dessert) and mote con huesillos (fruit in syrup with mote grains).

You'll have to practise your Spanish for now as the recipes are all in Chile's official language, however beautiful images accompany all the recipes so you can imagine how good it is going to smell and taste in your own kitchen!
