"Columbian Food and International Flavours." A Medellin, Columbia native, Erica, now lives in the northeastern US with her family. Erica loves everything about cooking shows, recipe books, and getting in the kitchen herself. She created the blog in 2009 as a tribute to her grandmother, whom she never saw cooking from a recipe. "My hope is that people from other countries discover Colombian food and learn more about our culture and traditions," said Erica. "Cooking traditional Colombian food connects me to my culture and allows me to share my heritage with my American family."
