This dish was first made in 1999. during my summer holidays. That summer was very hot, so hot one would not go out of the house at all; even the sea was warm, too warm to refresh. I had just some groceries I could not do anything as complete meal. I just had some of everything. And than, General Mapahche, a character from one of my favorite movies “The Wild Bunch” by Sam Peckinpah, came to my mind. He is a very mean soldier, general, very demanding, it seemed like a challenge to make him a meal; so this dish must be good, otherwise, you are going down.
