What is “El Batán”?

El Batáan is one of the most emblematic pre-hispanic tools of Peruvian Cuisine

A thousand-year-old batán is a key part of our gastronomy. Its success lies in the right mix of ingredients and spices.

A hollowed-out table made of smooth river stone is where the ingredients are placed and another stone in the shape of a half-moon which fits into this hollow and which serves to grind the ingredients in their most natural state
