What readers say

I found in you web site many recipes that were not handed down to us, like your quaker, seco de chivo, empanadas de viento, etc.  Again, thank you for keeping the Ecuadorian culture alive.  I especially like the stories you share with your recipes

I was looking around for some types of Ecuadorian food that I could put into a school project.  I stumbled upon your blog, and being the foodie I am, I got pretty hooked.  The recipes look great!  I just wanted to give you some positive feedback because when you do a good job, you really do deserve it.

Thank you so much for the wonderful resource of recipes!  My husband is Guayaquileño and misses the traditional food lots because we live in Miami and I am an American.  I already know a bunch of recipes and so am ready to tackle yours.  The best part is that they are in English and with our measurements – so easy for me.

Love your website!  It truly helped me execute Sango de verde with shrimp.  I can’t wait to try other dishes.  I came from Ecuador when I was 3 and this is the first time I found a website that gives you both a visual way to make the dishes.  I can now compete with mom.  Thanks again 🙂  Keep up the great posting on recipes.
