Yummy Foods – Part 1

While we were travelling in Latin America we tried some amazing foods, so of it local and some not so, so one long bus journey to keep ourselves entertained, we wrote a list of foods/drinks/snacks that we wanted to try cook ourselves. So here goes the list! Now that we are home I’m going to start ticking off that list and blogging the recipe (if its me cooking) or a picture of Iain’s fantastic cooking (he doesn’t use recipes!)

Drinks

Fruit Juices made with milk or water

In Popayan, Colombia we had these delicious juices served in litre jugs for about $1

Acai Berry – Served in Brazil, frozen as drinks or to accompany granola, a health food and delicious but not cheap

Cocktails – mainly Mojitos, Daiquiris, Caipirinhas & Pisco Sour

In this bar in Cusco, Peru we stepped behind the bar to make our own flavoured Pisco Sours.
