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 or bilingual. I also have a list of favorite food blogs that are mainly in Spanish (and few in Portuguese) on the Spanish section of my site. I highly recommend checking all of them out, even for those where you might not understand the language, you will still be able to appreciate the photos (and some have online translation tools).

I originally “met” her a few years ago through her previous blog (Canela y Comino).  There are so many similarities between Ecuadorian and Peruvian food – especially the Andean recipes, that I always see something that makes me homesick, like this estofado de pollo or chicken stew .
