Colombian Food Recipes

Our cuisine is rich in flavors and influences depending on the area of the country the dishes are from.

Here I have included some of the most representative recipes from Colombia that you can make without spending an arm and a leg or having to go crazy finding the ingredients, yet preserving the authentic flavor of the dishes.

The majority of the recipes included here were given by our food expert Patricia McCausland, a Barranquillera chef and book author who lives in Panama. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

My favorite recipes are the cazuela de mariscos and the Ajiaco. The first one from the Atlantic coast and the second one from the Andes region.
