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!
