A popular stew — and hangover remedy —in many Latin American countries, sancocho is rich in meat and vegetables. Local artist Carlos Delgado follows the tradition of his native Colombia by combining potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cassava (yuca), plantains and plenty of chicken. Sancocho is always served with avocado, and along with a salad and plate of white rice for for a hearty and comforting meal.
Guava jam and cheese – a classic Colombian dessert.
Carlos Delgado was born in rural Colombia and currently living in Toronto. He is a highly sought out artist, muralist and live painter who has been nominated as the only painter for TELUS and Toronto Arts Foundation’s Newcomer Artist Award in 2014. His love for Colombian food never left him as he often finds it fun to cook for friends while keeping his native traditions alive.
