Delicias del Jireh Peruvian Kitchen was started by Nilton Mori and his wife, Mariella, who came to White Plains from Peru 15 years ago with no plans to open a restaurant, although Nilton worked at his aunt’s eatery in Lima, where his mother was the chef.

After a few years of washing dishes, delivering furniture and working various other jobs, Nilton convinced Mariella that they could help make ends meet by making ceviches, traditional seafood dishes at their apartment and selling them to friends from the Peruvian community.

The couple attended Peruvian cooking classes in Manhattan to improve their skills, expanded to a full-fledged catering operation in 2012, and in September, opened Delicias del Jireh in White Plains.
