Colombian Hot Chocolate
A Delicious Colombian CostumeIn the kitchens of Colombians is never missing a cup of hot chocolate on the table at breakfast time or at sunset. This custom is part of a millenary culture that links families and friends. Chocolate arrived Colombia by the Mayas culture and, according to historians, were the Spaniards in colonial times who adopted the "drink as essential in foods".
A cup of hot chocolate accompanied by bread and cheese is a classic invitation that make Colombians for a get-together among friends in the evening, either in the city or in the countryside, where the drink boils in wood stoves from the dawn.
Casa Cultural Colombina (Colombian Cultural House) celebrates this wonderful custom every year in Canada. We invite you to share with your family and friends an afternoon full of those details of our land.
