Reminiscing about the wonderful learning experience in the kitchen and on the road traveling, that has brought me to where I am today, I came across some pictures and thought I would share them with you all.
A few years ago I was working on a private yacht and traveling through the Panama Canal from the Pacific to the Atlantic side. Once we were there a big storm blew in and kept the Yacht docked for a couple weeks.....hmmmmm what to do for a couple of weeks? Here are some pictures from Colon, Panama. The fish and seafood was astounding and the people were delightful, well as long as you knew someone. The statistics show that for every week a tourist is in Colon they will be mugged once. Avoiding this scenario I had a fabulous guide who was a local and kept me very safe. I was even invited to his families home for dinner. There were 6 people living in a 400 square foot, concrete home. His father had a Mango tree in the back yard filled with hanging baskets and orchids, stunning!
The best dish I learned while on the Atlantic side and in Colon was Fish Head Soup. Roberto, the guide, introduced me to his family and his mother and I made fish head soup and then sat down with the family and ate dinner. This is a memory I will have forever and am grateful for.
Where have you traveled and learned something fabulous to cook? Where is your favorite food country where you have learned the most?
I will find more pictures and share more food and traveling experiences!
Have a fabulous day!
