OK, so where did that rooster finally go?
Well, as you may imagine the destiny was rather hot. This photo shows the rooster boiling in a big pot over an open fire in the garden. No stock cubes here – only natural broth! Other important ingredients were potatoes, yucca, plantain and corn on the cob.
From all this we got a considerable amount of an out-of-this-world sancocho – one of the most traditional dishes to be found in Colombia.
By the way: I also have to mention the tamal we had for breakfast. Tamal consists of chopped meat and veggies, folded in a maize dough, then wrapped in banana leaves and steamed. It’s served in the banana leaf. Awesome!
