Hello world Taste South America!

Hello everybody and welcome to our first post on our food blog Taste South America. We are Silvia and Graciela two abuelas(grandmas) from Uruguay South America, currently living in Adelaide, Australia. We hope to share our love of South American food through our recipes that we have been cooking for many years.

 Why Taste South America?

We decided to start our food blog at the encouragement of our family and friends. They have been eating our food for years so they are a bit bia but  all agree that South American cuisine is great.  We are both in our 60’s enjoying our reteriment years but with still a lot to give.  As we both have a passion for cooking, we decided why not share it with others. Neither of us are computer savvy, so we have struggled to get this blog started, but finally its here. Thanks to Silvia’s son for his help

Taste South America allows to share some well know and some not well known recipes that we have learnt from many years of cooking South American food. Some of these recipes have been passed down through many generations. Our mum is our biggest influence and she is still cooking strong at the age of 88.

What do we want to achieve

Initially our thoughts were to be able to share recipes with other food nuts. But as we began to look at other food blogs our ideas began to change. We now want to develop a community of fellow lovers of South American food. To achieve this we hope to have lots interaction from readers of our blog.

So any time you drop in to see us feel free to comment and share with us what you think. Let us know if you have tried one of our recipes and what results you had. We would love to hear from you.
