How hard is it to define a city in three plates or flavors? The bogotano recipe book is perhaps one of the most prosperous in the country, due to the fact that it gets nurtured by all the cuisines that come here to stay and live, who have travelled whit their dreams and flavors to mingle. The street posts, the markets and popular eateries, the typical food restaurants and all the patrons that come to feed on nostalgia are quintessentially a part of the gastronomy from Bogotá which is a sum of different cultures and regions of Colombia.
However, as much diversity inhabits the city, there is a “Cachaco spirit” we’ve always loved to cook with, and we took it upon ourselves to select the unmissable flavors during your trip: let us take you on a journey of those recipes.
