Chilean seafood casserole – Chupe


Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary took a loose brown velvet hostess gown to the cleaner, made an appointment to have her hair done, and ordered wine and liquor and ice cubes and the ingredients of a Chilean seafood casserole called chupe.
On the Thursday morning before the party, Minnie came with the drink while Rosemary was picking apart crabmeat and lobster tails. “That looks interesting,” Minnie said, glancing into the kitchen. What is it?”
Rosemary told her, standing at the front door with the striped glass cold in her hand: “I’m going to freeze it and then bake it Saturday evening,” she said. “We’re having some people over.”
