Can you think of anything that immediately connects people more than “breaking bread” together? A universal truth is that food is an important part of everyone’s cultural heritage and individual identity. We all have favourite foods which generally fluctuate throughout the year based on what plants are in season and which recipes our family have traditionally enjoyed during the holidays. Food brings friends and families together, connects us to people and places, and engages all of our five senses in order to create unforgettable memories.
Cuisine in the Amazon Rainforest is truly unique. If you haven’t travelled there yet and had the chance to taste local delicacies, you’re missing out. Communities such as the indigenous Kichwa in Ecuador have kept their ancient Amazonian culture alive and strong. They are happy to share their knowledge of the tasty and sustainable local foods that you can try on your next vacation.
