One of the more apparent features of a culture is its food. What we eat is such an integral part of our lives, because without it, we are unable to sustain ourselves. The food of Colombia is truly an ode to Colombian culture and its rich and diverse culture. It is unlike any other for many reasons. This South American country is located on the east coast and has a diverse climate and varied topography. This diversity allows for a variety of crops to be grown here, which means there is no shortage of culinary creativity for tourists to sample.
