In celebration of a ten-day trip we’re taking to Colombia with our friend Paul and his family in Bogotá, we prepared 4 authentic dishes with the help of Patricia McCausland-Gallo’s book Secrets of Colombian Cooking.
While selecting recipes, we picked a few that require prep times of 3 hours or more, and when we asked Paul if this would take up too much of the night, he said, “You have to learn to eat like Colombians do … late and long.” Indeed, the meal took 6 hours from start to finish. A new Copy and Taste record.
We leave tomorrow to taste the real thing, and what a superb feeling to know we’ve earned it!
