For the Adventurous Eater: Cuy
(Photo by Madelaine Adelaide)
I've always heard that cuy is delicious. The national dish of Ecuador, it's been eaten by the people of the Andes for more than 4000 years. But I NEVER expected to find out that it's sold in restaurants right here in New York.
That's because cuy tends to freak out Americans (and Swedes and Australians). Odds are, it will freak you out, too. But here at Ananka's Diary, we are citizens of the world, right? We're open to new cultures, new flavors, new experiences, right?
Well keep your mind open while you read this!
