Culinary Tour 2010 • Colombia Round-Up

February 17, 2010 by Joan Nova in Culinary Tour Around the World, Events | 11 Comments

An unexpected benefit of A Culinary Tour Around the World is the opportunity it has given us to become acquainted with food bloggers we didn’t know before. Once again, we have 3 first-time contributors. They come from Hawaii, Germany and  Chicago.

Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing? It introduces us to people…it takes us places…it informs…it entertains…and it feeds. Wait till you see the dishes in this round-up — it’ll have you booking passage on the next flight to Cartagena or Bogota!


First-time contributor, Claudia of Honey From Rock in Keaau, Hawaii, made Enyucado, a delicious cassava cake.

Andrea of Family + Food in Germany, another first-timer, made Pan de Queso which she served with a cup of hot chocolate.

Our third first-timer, Danielle of  So Many Recipes in Chicago, made Pulled Pork Sofrito Arepas and Fried Plantains with Black Beans.
Erica of My Colombian Kitchen, a native-born Colombian who currently lives in the U.S., presented bandeja paisa (with links to recipes for each component).
Lara of The Lab in Missouri brought us some beautiful photos of Colombia and an orange and peanut salad.
Natasha of 5-Star Foodie in VA made  Chocolate en Leche de Coco (hot chocolate made with coconut milk)and Pan de Yuca (yuca bread).Oz of Kitchen Butterfly in The Netherlands made a delicious-looking Banana Bread with chocolate, pecans and citrus zest.

And, in case you missed it, FOODalogue made Sancocho - a root vegetable and chicken stew.

Cinzia from CindyStarBlog in Italy arrived late with this one but it is oh-so-worth-the-wait. Here is Papa Turmada.

Next Stop: Jamaica, February 22

NOTE: Some recipes found on FOODalogue are offered without ingredient quantities. They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for. A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!

  3. Katie says:

    All of the dishes are quite tantalizing, but the arepas are particularly appealing. A friend of mine just vacationed in Colombia, and she had nothing but rave reviews for the country and its people. Now I’m off to explore the food!

  4. Iam still lounging around in El Salvador Joan, I will see you in Jamaica for some more delicious food adventures.

  5. Wonderful dishes! This was a fun stop and I’m looking forward to Jamaica!

    Joan, food is the big unifier…people of different walks of life, opposing politics or from different countries are all brought together with delicious food.

    Joan I could barely get past the bandeja paisa without stopping and having to check the link for every recipe. I could wake up to that every morning!! Then Cinzia’s Papas Turmada looks fantastic. Now hot cocoa made with coconut milk-Oh my! What a fantastic round up and am very excited about trying some of these recipes. Jamaica sounds interesting- can’t wait to see what everyone cooks up from my honeymoon island.
