Coconut Rice




Elvira, who has worked at my mother´s place for more than 25 years makes coconut rice the most delicious way. She does this for my short three day stay at home and so I make a short video. Coconut rice this way is brown colored like titoté yet it doesn´t have the coconut crackles in it. She blends the meat of 2 coconuts with its coconut water and places it in a caldero pot. It cooks for about 20 minutes with panela or raw sugar, until it is thick and dark brown. In the meantime she makes more coconut milk by adding warm water to the leftover blended coconut and reblends it until she gets 8 more cups of strained coconut milk. Then she places this second blended coconut water into the pot and mixes to create a liquid that is lightly golden. She adds the raisins, rice and salt and cooks the rice over high heat until it makes eyes and you can see the rice on the surface of the coconut milk. Then covers it for 20 minutes and voila!!!! Wonderful coconut rice for all.

My mother’s Magazine Collection





Colombian Coffee in my mother’s Gourmet Magazine Collection

I was looking for the first adds by the Colombian Coffee Federation and found some of these pictures. It is incredible how time passes, as I read her magazines all well kept and hard bound since the 1960’s. I have yet to find the first Juan Valdez add and will blog about it as soon as I go back home and have more time to check it out. For now remember, it is one of the greatest pleasures in life, just remembering. Where were you then, what were your dreams to be and what’s going on now!
Best wishes and bon coffeetit!

Colombia needs peace!






Our Independence Day was filled with cry for peace, as thousands of Colombians and friends walked peacefully through the streets of many countries. Colombians never loose hope that our country will one day have all of its families back together without fear of loosing them to a cruel and inhumane rebellious force. As we walked down a 42 degree heat there was music, Colombian food and faith all together what make us a special society. We are hardworking, very ingenious people who have had to get where we are by doing things the hardest way there is and therefore able to succeed anywhere and under any circumstance. As has happened in many places in time and history, a few bad apples spoil the lot. We are more than 40 million happy and very family oriented natured human beings that strive for a future filed with peace and prosperity.

Love,
Pachi
