|inedible bandeja paisa!|
This little dish is a bandeja paisa. Bandeja paisa is the classic main dish from the coffee-growing region of Colombia, the historical Antioquia.
It's a truly phenomenal amount of food:
fried plantain (patacon)
chicharron (imagine a super-thick cut bacon, with the pork rind still attached, super pork!)
and an arepa (a thick corn patty that's somewhere between a thick tortilla and flat cornbread)
In short: an express ticket to a food coma.
We're so excited to be featured in today's style supplement of El Colombiano (a major newspaper in Colombia!), Generacion. Muchas gracias y bienvenidos a todos!
My husband is originally from Medellin, Colombia, and we go to visit his family each year. I became instagram friends with a Colombian foodie, Claudia Arias (foodies are the best people!), and the rest is history.
