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.
A Freir Pimientos : Mainly in Spanish, but some recipes are also in English. Written by Pablo in Spain. Check out this Guisado de albondigas con pollo recipe or the Sopa de calabaza, boniato y jengibre
BAs Cooking – Written by Sylvia in Buenos Aires. Each post is available in English, Spanish and Portuguse. The photography is beautiful. Check out her chiminichurri and her churros and hot vanilla scented chocolate

L’Exquisit: In Spanish. Written by Sonia, originally from Spain but living in Holland. Delicious photos and tempting recipes. Check out her scallops in a creamy saffron sauce or this refreshing mango cream.

My Colombian Recipes : Written by Erica, living in the US, but originally from Colombia. Her blog is inspired by her grandmother Mamita. One of my favorite Colombian dishes is bandeja paisa, she has a great recipe for this dish. Also, try her Colombian empanadas made with corn meal.
Platanos, Mangoes and Me : Written by Norma in New York, she is a personal chef with a varied Latin heritage. Her dishes reflect this heritage and include recipes from Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Spain and more. Check out her Sancocho Venezolano and her Puerto Rican beef stew
Provecho Peru: Written by Gretchen, an American living in Peru and married to a Peruvian. 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 . Gretchen is also a great baker and incorporates a Peruvian twist into the goodies she bakes, check out her Pisco Sour cupcakes.
The Mija Chronicles : Written by Lesley, a culinary guide and food writer based in Mexico City. The site includes recipes as well as recommendations for places to eat in Mexico’s capital. Try her recipes for migas with red peppers and peas
