DROP-IN DINNER: Ajiaco Colombiano by Cookie Martinez

February 27, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

LAST CHANCE!
February Pop Up Showcase: Cookie Martinez

You might know Natalia (aka Cookie) Martinez from her popular cookies and ice cream sandwiches. Thursdays in February Cookie will be at The Dep making her famous Ajiaco, a traditional hearty chicken soup from her home country of Colombia, along with tasty empanadas and the most amazingly decadent flan for dessert.

Empanadas
3 Chicken or vegetable-stuffed mini-pastries served with homemade aji criollo dipping sauce
$5

Ajiaco
A distinctive dish from the Colombian capital of Bogota, Ajiaco is full meal in a bowl. It features chicken, corn, capers, creme fraiche, cilantro and potatoes. This big bowl of soup comes with avocado and an arepa – a thick corn masa patty, crisp on the outside, soft in the middle.
(vegetarian option available, gluten-free)
$12

Flan
Like a decadently rich creme caramel, Colombian flan is a rich egg custard draped in a luscious caramel sauce made from panela, a tropical unrefined sugar.
$4

Hot Drink
Agua De Panela with Cinnamon and Cloves
$2

“El Gran Combo”:
Empanadas + Ajiaco + Flan + Agua de Panela for $20 tax-in!

Cookie Martinez earned her name making delicious cookies, macaroons and brownies – including great vegan and gluten-free options – with an eye towards organic and local ingredients and creative South American flavours. She has also participated in innovative food projects like the Future Food Salon, creating a variety of dishes incorporating insects, and her spicy guava sauce recently won top honors at the Empanada Throwdown at the Ritmo y Color Festival at Harbourfront Centre.
