Although I grew up in a Puerto Rican household, I started cooking Spanish food by watching my neighbors mom who was from Colombia. Later on I incorporated the Puerto Rican flavors that I grew up with and Colomborican was born.
For the best taste, buy your ingredients fresh...no matter how far you have to go to get them. Enjoy!
