Read an Excerpt


Chilled Vegetable Soup (Gazpacho)

Gazpacho would not exist if the Spanish explores introduced tomatoes to the Spaniards. The secret of good gazpacho rests in the tomatoes. Prepare this dish only in tomato season and choose the reddest, juiciest, ripest tomatoes.

Colombian Chicken-Potato Soup(Ajiaco)

Throughout Latin America, dinner usually begins with soup. It may be clear liquid sopa, or heartier caldo, broth or una crema, a delicate cream-based purée. Often, soup such as pozole, birria, cocido, or asopao is an entire meal. Rice and pasta dishes are also considered thick sopas. Traditionalists consider any meal incomplete without soup.

Cornmeal Patties (Arepas)

Fried cornmeal cheese patties are popular throughout South America. A great accompaniment to any meal instead of tortillas or bread.
