We met Jeff in Cuba three years ago as he ran screaming from a cockroach in a dark cave. In honour of our meeting place, he put together this delicious Cuban favourite served with mojitos and a homemade vanilla bean ice-cream for dessert.
Chileno's love seafood so it's no surprise that one of their regional dishes is packed full of mussels and clams. It's a dish fairly similar to a personal favourite of main, Chilli Mussels - just without the chilli.
One of the benefits of living and working in a hostel is the ability to meet so many different people from all over the world. We have also enjoyed those moments when we all get together to share a meal just like this one.
A big thank you to Flore for this recipe and we hope you enjoy cooking this French classic at home yourself.
One memory that will live with me forever, is the time I spent teaching a Grade 2 class in Tela, Honduras. I had no idea what I was doing but the kids were resilient, the parents incredibly active in their children's education, and somehow we all survived.
For special occasions, some of the Mum's would bring delicious food to share with the class. I thought I had lost this recipe, but I just found it hidden in a safe place in my backpack. We hope you enjoy this Honduran version of nachos!!
One dish I truly enjoyed eating in Ecuador was a pasta soup with chunks of cheese in it. It reminded me of mac and cheese…but in a soup! And we all know just how much I love mac and cheese…
One thing we really appreciated about volunteering with All Hands Volunteers, was the diversity. People had come from all over the world to work together to improve the lives of those affected by the April 2016 earthquake in Ecuador.
Food was supplied on our work days but come Sunday, we all had to fend for ourselves. On one of those Sundays we all got together to create pierogis, a Polish dish served on special occasions but good enough to eat whenever the bloody hell you want too!
Beans are a staple ingredient in Latin-American cuisine and Justin and I love them. But, after trying several times to make these myself, I enlisted the help of my good friend Fernanda.
Here she shares her recipe for this stomach-filling, hearty dish that we've come to enjoy here in Colombia.
