Have You Ever Heard of Ceviche? If Not, Here’s What It Is
Ceviche recipes are best known in Latin America, but they are really a global recipe. Ceviche recipes are not the same as other recipes from Latin America such as arroz con pollo, enchiladas, empanadas or tamales.
This is because ceviche recipes are actually Middle Eastern and North African in origin. They came to Latin America with the Moorish cooks who accompanied Pisarro on his voyages to the New World and they have been a part of Latin American culture ever since. Nonetheless, ceviche recipes are still popular in Africa and the Middle East as well as Latin America and they can be found in places as far away as Afghanistan.
There are a lot of opportunities for people to get a better taste of the Latin America from cooking shows or restaurants which exist in most cities. Nonetheless, these recipes are probably not for everyone and not everyone can learn to appreciate these recipes.
South of the Border cooking is probably more popular in the Western portion of the United States than it is in either the South or the North. Nonetheless, ceviche recipes will continue to be popular with people who are looking for the best recipes that are exotic but still tasty.
Sometimes, people can get a taste of these recipes from a cooking course and sometimes from a television show. Everyone has their own preferred mode of learning. But cooking one’s own ceviche can be a great learning experience.
