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.
