Cooking class - Llapingachos

 Every once a while, we are having cooking classes at Vida Verde. Students should not only eat the Ecuadorian food, but also know how to prepare a traditional meal to show it their friends and family at home.
Llapingachos originated in Ambato. It is fried, mashed potato surrounding a center of cheese which is generally served with baked or fried pork. It is typically served with avocado, sausage, fried egg, tomato and lettuce salad on the side. This dish forms part of Ecuador's culture, and is one of the representative icons of Highland food. Llapingacho is popular not only in Ecuador's Highlands but also in the coast and eastern provinces.
