The region of the Chocó, with the fury of the waves of the Pacific beating its shores and the rushing rivers flowing down to the ocean and the water-rich mountains, offers plenty of exquisite and nourishing food, which, in the hands of the black communities that live there produce surprising and exceptional dishes.
The mainland supplies the aromatic herbs from the hidden corners of one’s garden or from the hillsides amid the jungle. Cimarron coriander, garlic, cumin and basil are the natural cousins of the piangua, the snapper and any number of other fish and seafood, plantain, sweetcorn, rice, coconut and cocoa. Each of them helps to form any number of combinations to surprise you. Another success for the people of our Pacific coast!
Here are some of the other delights of our Pacific kitchens: they don’t mean much in English – so just put them on the list to try out in Nuquí!
