Debbie Renteria has been instrumental in lending a sweet side to the cuisine of Ricardo Zarate, L.A.’s unofficial Peruvian culinary ambassador, first at the since-closed Picca, and now at Rosaliné. Renteria talked with us about linking Peru’s signature desserts to her own heritage, coaxing diners to embrace the unfamiliar, and more.
