You might know Natalia (aka Cookie Martinez) from her popular cookies and ice cream sandwiches, or her Colombian Street Food stall at Scadding Court’s Market 707 – Toronto’s First Shipping Container Market.
This Friday, Cookie will be making her famous Ajiaco, a traditional hearty Colombian chicken soup, along with tasty empanadas and a decadent chocolate and dulce de leche cake for dessert.
2 Chicken or vegetable-stuffed mini-pastries served with homemade aji criollo dipping sauce
A distinctive dish from Cookie’s hometown 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 rice on the side.
(vegetarian option available, gluten-free)

Agua de Panela:
A hot Colombian winter drink made from raw cane sugar and cinnamon – perfect to warm up on a chilly day.
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.
