Venezuela

September 5, 2010

 PART II

Go into the Venezuelan gastronomy is submerge in a world of aromas and flavors that delineate the space of a kitchen of marked tastes and showy colors, of indigenous roots and of hereditary European influence, the kitchen of these lands is the merger of several cultures, but with  a marked personality.

The most representative foods of Venezuela are: The Pabellón Criollo, The Arepa, The Hallaca, The Cachapa, Empanadas, between others.

Arepas are de most popular food in Venezuela, everybody (poor and rich people); eat this food in breakfast and especially in dinner.  It is makes with corn´s flour and some people refill the arepas with meat, others with chicken. Also you can put them cheese and a variety of fillings that varies according to the taste of people. Everyone when comes to Venezuela have to eat a delicious Arepa.

Other popular food from Venezuela, (my favorites), is The Hallaca.  We don´t have Christmas without Hallacas, by this reason It specially prepare for Christmas in all country. It makes with corn´s flour as Arepas, but it is covered with leaf of banana and we refill them with meat of cow, pork and chicken (some people just refill them with meat or chicken). Also, we put with the meat, european and Mediterranean ingredients, such as: Olives, raisin and capers. It is because Hallacas was invented in the colonial age, when slaves cooked for Spanish families; they used to unite extra foods of their owner to make their food. With the passage of time, the Hallaca, becomes a delicious food in Venezuelan.

The Venezuelan kitchen is characterized by the use of the maize, yucca, banana, chili, grains, tubers, sugar cane, meats and varied birds, wherefrom they derive plates with the only and extraordinary flavors.
