Ecuador, Food

In the past month or so, Manna Project Ecuador has been on a great push to create a cookbook of Ecuadorian foods that we will use to fundraise this holiday season. My wonderful roommate Amelia has been incredibly generous and hardworking in spearheading this project, and in the past few weeks we been eating all Ecuadorian food all the time to prepare the cookbook. Heres some pictures of our recent efforts and all the wonderful food we’ve been enjoying!

Guaguas de Pan– these delicious bread babies filled with jam accompany the Colada Morada to serve as the traditional Día de los Difuntos [Day of the Dead] treat in Ecuador. Traditionally on this holiday, Ecuadorians will take the Colada Morada and Guaguas de Pan to the cemetery and ‘share’ them with their deceased loved ones.
