The arepa is a Colombian kitchen stable. It’s what represents the country aside from coffee. There are different varieties of this corn cake from Bogota’s white, round, and flat to the Carribean Coast’s thick fried stuffed with egg known as Arepa e’Huevo and the sweet yellow corn cake known as Arepa de Choclo. Today arepas are easily found in Colombian bakeries and Hispanic food markets in the frozen food section. The arepa can be grilled, baked, or even fried. Enjoy with a side of fresh white cheese, scrambled eggs for breakfast, hogao or guacamole as a snack, or with meat for dinner.
