Leyendo las recetas colombianas me estoy dando cuenta que son muy similares a las cubanas lo único que cabían son los nombres. El sancocho nosotros le llamamos ajiaco y le agregamos también camotes y plátano maduro. Mi abuela lo hacia muy rico, ella lo hizo un par de veces aquí en Los Angeles pero nunca el sabor es el mismo porque nos hace falta nuestra tierra. Feliz día de Acción de Gracia y Navidad.

Buenas recetas similares a las cubanas

Hola, me encanta este blog, me gustaría saber si tienes esta receta. La vi mucho en la zona cafetera en Colombia se me olvidó el nombre pero se que era un patacón entero con Toppings encima, como trucha con salsa de camarones y otros deliciosos Toppings, muchas gracias!
