AREPAS – BREAKFAST AND LUNCH
Considered the most typical food of northern South America (Colombia and Venezuela), AREPAS are a daily ritual that has been practiced for centuries. Maiz (corn) is one of the most beautiful gifts of the Americas (North, Central and South) to the world. The indigenous inhabitants of South America mastered the art of transforming Maiz into simple, loyal and very healthy round goodies called AREPAS! – All Gluten-Free except Arepa de Choclo.
