About

So this recipe comes from another cookbook I bought in Colombia called En Su Mesa by five Colombian female chefs. A beautifully written and photographed book that I just can’t wait to share with you. This recipe is from one of the chefs her name is Anita Botero a very talented chef who studied in Le Cordon Bleu in London and has a restaurant called La Cafetiere de Anita. Her recipes are described as Colombian gourmet comfort food. This recipe is just divine, so delicious I took it all to share with my coworkers and it was a big hit! So smooth, cheesy, and bacon-y I can’t have enough of them.
