3 flavour-packed Latin American recipes for your next feast or fiesta
Straight off the menu at Toronto’s El Bosco, a margarita, empanada and cake that will make your party
The menu at El Bosco, a Toronto food truck and catering service, is the kind of amazing mashup that you may not get to enjoy outside of such a diverse city. Founded by Marcela Geer, who hails from Colombia, and Ismael Castro, who's from Mexico, El Bosco's repertoire of dishes merges each owner's favourites from their home countries, with a few vegan additions in the mix as well.
"We use a lot of fresh ingredients," says Castro, who also serves as Executive Chef, says about Latin American food. "There's citrus, there's spiciness, there's smokiness, you know, there's a kaleidoscope of flavours which you can apply in one dish… that's what makes [it] unique."
We've asked Castro and Geer to share a few signature El Bosco recipes with us. Each can be enjoyed à la carte, or use them to make the perfect menu for your next feast or fiesta. Buen apetito!
