Well if these pictures don't make you hungry then i'm not sure what will!! Today we have a quick look at a South American favourite - Puerto Rico.
Although Puerto Rican cooking is somewhat similar to Cuban and Mexican cuisine, it is a wonderfully unique melting pot of Spanish, African, Taíno, and American influences, using such indigenous seasonings and ingredients as coriander, papaya, cacao, nispero (loquats), apio (celery), plantains (bananas), and yampee.
We recently created a Puerto Rican buffet for 40 guests, which was really fun to be a part of. The food was bursting with flavour and colours which added to the already amazing day the hosts had created.
The Albondigón, Fricasé & Tres Leches Cake were fan favourite that you should try at home! here's a great link to some Puerto Rican recipes on BuzzFeed here!
