Chilean eats

Packaged, bottled, pisco-ified, or plucked from a tree, we ate and drank well, and I’ve decided to close out Chile week with a few of our favorite noshes. We saw lots of seafood and ceviche, steak and fresh veggies on the menu, all kicked off with housemade bread served with butter and salsas. Here are just a few highlights, including tasty traditional eats like humitas and empanadas. Check the blog later this afternoon when a random photo Friday post will feature a few non-food-related shots I took. Next week, we’re back to cold (but still delicious) Chicago.
