Join Surfas’s own Alexa Mata who was born and raised in Ecuador as she shares some of her favorite recipes.The diversity of habitats and regions in Ecuador is reflected by this country’s varied and delicious cuisine. Fresh seafood in many forms awaits those who visit the Pacific coast. Recipes from the high Andes have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The rainforests of the Amazon provide ingredients for several dishes and drinks, and each Ecuadorian town seems to have its own take on widespread recipes. Although Ecuador has been overlooked as a food destination, these and other factors hint at why so many people look for Ecuadorian recipes after coming back from a trip to this exciting country.
