International food fair to feature a number of typical Latin dishes

Expats who never have sampled choripán from Uruguay, cerdo relleno from Colombia, paella from Spain or cochinita pibil from México will have their chance April 9. The Instituto Interamericano de Cooperación para la Agricultura is putting on a food fair in Coronado.

The Feria Internacional de Comidas Típicas will have at last 16 different food stands, said organizers.

There is an admission for the event of 1,000 colons for adults and 500 colons for children under 10.

The fair starts at 10 a.m., and runs until 5 p.m.

The event also is a step back into time. The Mexican pork dish, cochinita pibil, comes from the Mayan culture.  Choripán is a sausage sandwich that is made differently in most South American countries. There are perhaps 1,000 recipes for cerdo relleno, but the Colombia variety is roughly a pork filet mignon.

Organizers promise foods from other Latin countries, too. The location is in Vásquez de Coronado.

Some 34 countries are members of the institute and handiwork from a number will be for sale, an announcement said.

The measure, No. 17.246, also seeks to promote Chinese investment here.
