Can I request something from you? I’m in a bit of a bind and maybe one (or all) of you could provide some assistance.
In about a month I will be dusting off my passport, braving the wilds of U.S. airport security, and heading to Ecuador. It’s all super lovely except that I’m supposed to be this Traveling Taste Bud food writer, and I know close to nothing about Ecuadorian food.
This is where you come in. Your sister-in-law is from Ecuador, or your chunky roommate from college, or your little cousin’s second grade teacher or something. You just found an Ecuadorian cookbook you love or you spent half a year in Quito in the late 90’s after a messy break-up. The point is-- some of you out there know a lot more about Ecuadorian food than I do and I want you to give up the goods.
I’m not picky; I’ll take links, cryptic messages, and hazy photos.
Whatever you got.
