Traditional Nicaraguan Fare

Creole and Garifuna cultures had been existing in Nicaragua long before the Europeans landed. Once the Spaniards arrived, though, the beliefs began to join and so did their cuisines. As a consequence, the food of Nicaragua is rare in flavor and preparation, and absolutely delightful.

By some standards, the diets of Nicaragua are odd if not unpalatable. Turtle eggs and snake meat is normal on their menu. Likewise, when it comes to beef foods, they don't stop at just the meat. They use the blood, skin, brains, and most other body parts in the creation of some of their cuisines. Nonetheless as sickening as it might appear, the cuisine is flavorful, bright, and rather tasty.

The secret to their recipes seems to be in the not-so-secret fixings they use. Corn is employed in the majority of their entrees in some shape, and has been from the time before the Europeans appeared. That, combined with unique aromatic plants and flowers found nowhere else in the world, and crisp vegetables and fruits, create exceptional looking and tasting foods. True "Nicaraguan cuisine" is now a blend of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna backgrounds, and the result is a very unique taste.

Don't turn up your nose at the cuisine until you've tasted tried it. Most people who have tried the cuisine come away pleasantly surprised at how delicious and visually appealing their cuisine is. The combination of Nicaraguan food and traditions blend seamlessly.
