Spanish and Latin Food Blogs

Here is a list of some of my favorite Spanish and Latin food blogs. I am very inspired by these bloggers and can relate to their passion for food and their food-related stories. The authors of these blogs are people who I wouldn’t mind having a cup of coffee with (or a glass of wine, margarita, mojito, capirinha, pisco sour, etc), while we talk about food. Most of these blogs are written in English, I’ve pointed out the ones that are in Spanish or Portuguese – I highly recommend checking them out, even if you don’t understand the language, you will still be able to appreciate the photos. This is by no means a comprehensive list; the blogs included here are some that have been around for a while, as well as some new ones that I have recently discovered. I would love to keep adding more Latin American and Spanish food blogs to this list. Suggestions are welcome.

Aromas y Sabores: Heidi is a Mexican expat living abroad, currently in Macau. A former chef, she currently teaches cooking classes. I love her photos! In addition, I recently found out that we’re both married to French men. Though, I’m slightly jealous that hers is a pastry chef. Check out her flan tequila recipe.
