Eating My Way Around South America

WHAT TO EAT: Arroz con coco

WHERE TO EAT IT: All along the Caribbean coast in Colombia. I’ve spied it in Brazil too but to a much lesser extent

I like rice. No, let’s correct that. I LOVE rice! It’s been a staple food for me since I was a kid. Back then, I was the pickiest eater going. I gave my mom quite a bit of trouble with my choosy eating ways and if she could see me now eating ants (!!) and innards, she would surely shake her head in disbelief!

WHAT TO EAT: AREPA CON HUEVO

WHERE TO EAT IT: COLOMBIA. YOU CAN FIND IT IN CITIES LIKE CALI OR BOGOTA BUT THE BEST AND THE ORIGINAL IS ALL ALONG THE CARIBBEAN COASTLINE

I just realized that I have yet to present one of my favorite South American countries through food, Colombia. Both Laurent and I fell in love with this country. The landscape is varied and beautiful ranging from the coastal Caribbean with its crystal blue warm waters in the north to the lush, green mountain interior and the Amazon jungle to the south. Every part of Colombia we traveled was full of friendly, welcoming people who were eager to share their beautiful cultures and traditions with us and of course, their food.
