Cocina Colombiana - Recipes from Colombia

Colombian cuisine is rich and diverse, thanks to geographical variety, a tropical climate, and the influence of many immigrant populations. There are exotic dishes like roasted ants (homiga culona), guinea pig, and fried intestines (chunchillos), as well as comfort foods like arepas and chicken soup (sancocho de gallina). Traditional dishes like bandeja paisa (assorted meat plate with fried egg and fried plantian), fritanga (heaping plate of fried meats and sausages), and lechona (whole roasted...MORE suckling pig) are not for vegetarians or for the faint of appetite, but are excellent for sharing with friends.
